There are a variety of bracket mounts for GPS units that are being fixed onto car dashboards. Some allow the unit to be mounted horizontally, other vertically, and some have special features that protect the unit from glare. These mounts are an important accessory for GPS receivers, as they keep them stationary and easy to use while on the road.

Bracket Mounts for GPS Units Suit Many Applications

Swivel mounts are useful for turning the GPS unit to face away from the sun, or just to get the best viewing angle. They can be used to mount the unit horizontally or vertically on the dash. The swivel base is optional, and the unit can be easily removed for portable use. Bean bag style mounts allow you to affix the GPS unit without hardware. They cradle the GPS unit and can be easily transferred to another vehicle.

For temporary installation of bracket mounts for GPS units, adhesive putty can be used instead of screws. Inexpensive mounts affixed with putty are ideal for second vehicles. Another option are suction cups. Some brackets have hinges that allow you to adjust for sun glare. Handlebar style bracket mounts work well on bikes, motorcycles and ATVs, as they snap onto the handlebar and are easily removed.

The type of bracket mounts for GPS units you choose will depend upon the application. Your GPS unit can be temporarily or permanently mounted, or it can be mounted without hardware. Some can snap on and off, to be taken with you wherever you go. Swivels and hinges make them more versatile. Your outdoor supply store can show you a variety of models that will help you get the most out of your GPS receiver.
