It might be worthwhile to have the antenna closer to the window.

No duct tape? So, do the women find you handsome or handy?

Seems to work just fine where it is.

I could give ugly lessons to a blowfish, but I can keep her truck running.

I only once used the Velcrostrip. Then the glue was all over the place and I
had a hard time getting it removed.

Then I got hold of a large paperclamp. I use that to mount the Garmin III
using the bracket eactly on the space advised in the owner's manual, under
the compass. The clamp sticks out a bit, but that's not a problem for me.

I'm used to sit at a high position in the chair (due to the fact that I
always use a parachute on which I sit during paradropping).
Therefore the GPS is never blocking my view.

Interesting you mention this. I was just beginning my evening workout when
I noticed someone had closed my potato chip bag with one of these:

I thought it might be useable as a GPS mount , but it'd be to high for me
and the dashboards of our old planes don't need any more help in the
deterioration department. So, I looked at the "professional" clamps online
and decided a hundred or so dollars was too much to hold a GPS - plus they
are pretty clumsy devices. Besides, I strive for more of a "Red Green"
look...
