Where is the best place to mount GPS (e.g. TomTom 130/Garmin 265WT)
on a 2010 Prius dash?  Which is better a suction cup window mount or a
adhesive dash mount?
Thanks.  Walter .

I mounted the plastic disk on the dash (driver'sextreme left and
closest to the dash lip) and I use the suction mount on the disk. It's
perfect for me.

The reason I asked was because I realize that
I could not place the GPS unit near any of the
places where the airbags would be deployed.

I have a weighted beanbag type dash mount for my (Garmin) GPS - works great!
I put it in front of me, slightly to the left. My niece & a friend both had
the window suction deal & both of them have had them fall off; cracked my
niece's TomTom's screen.
