Mounting a GPS or cell phone

Want a great way to mount your electronics without drilling holes? How about a vehicle-specific bracket/adapter mounting system? You can buy a version for just about any car or device from pro-fit-intl.com. The mounting bracket for this 1999 Toyota Camry fits onto one of the radio fasteners (Photo 1). Other versions mount in different places. Then the device-specific adapter mounts to it (Photo 2).

I love this dash mount. I installed one of these in my daughters car in hopes that she will not text so much. Seems getting the phone out of her hands makes a huge difference. Well worth the money in my opinion.
