    Thats where mine is, its actually the centre brodit vent bracket, but it fits over there, but it points the wrong way. I made a swivel backet for it though, so happy enough

    Check that page out.

    All you get is the bracket, check and see if your sat-nav has a bracket that you can screw to the mount.

    The one i have is item number 653076 on that page.

    The top one 603078 is the better one for that location

    As an aside to mounting satnav or mobile cradle next to the drivers window - years ago, when coming out of London on the A40 and stationary in traffic, woman next to me had her drivers window open and some little scrote just leaned in and had it away.

    Always mount my mobile in the middle of the car where at least I can break their arms off

    Just an observation
