Did not fit my Cool Navi GPS. – Car Outlet Mount Dock for GPS Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Not too expensive.
Cons:
I have an older 'Cool Navi' 4.3" GPS unit. Though there were 3 different adapters provided with this unit, none of them fit my GPS holder --- so, I wasted my money. Also, it is not very solidly constructed. The device uses only one clip to attach to a single vane on the car vent unit, whereas other devices serving a similar purpose use two. Furthermore, the clip is a relatively narrow metal one, which looks like it might break the plastic vent vane if you are traveling over rough terrain. So, even if it had fit my GPS, I probably would have not been comfortable using it while driving on gravel or rough roads. (Too much vibration and shock.)
Other:
I had been looking for this kind of device for a while. I was a bit skeptical about buying this, but decided to give it a try.
Bottomline:
Probably okay for driving on smooth paved. It might not actually hold your brand of GPS --- so be prepared for this. The price is not very high, it is not a great loss if it doesn't work. (Locally available devices for this purpose are much more expensive, so it would be more of an issue if they did not work.)
