Removing The Gps and Radar Detector

Are the Gps and Radar Dectors Screwed into the mounts. What is holding the Radar Detector? I believe the GPS is using the Garmain Mount and is screwed in. Would you just remove the arm to lock it up.

Thanks

the GPS is screwed to the mount. The mount has AMPS pattern holes. The Radar Detector is secured using dual-lock material. I've used dual-lock for 5 years and have yet to lose my Radar Detector. I didn't have time to find a mounting solution for my Satellite radio.

Unhappy

Mounting an SPIII to your brand new GT just seems so wrong. Jeff Jeff Jeff!

When Garmin comes out with the new units with SIRIUS radio and weather, then I'll update.

My only concern would be the use of "stainless steel" low-head socket bolts and nuts in this installation. SS can not be hardened and could potentially shear in this application.

Perhaps El Jeffe or the Pirate himself can comment on this? Perhaps it's not an issue in this installation? Perhaps one could use the factory parts if so inclined?


Purty things I'd like one myself.

As long as it's M8 or M10, I wouldn't myself worry about it shearing. S/S is pretty hard and is used throughout industry for high load applications. I would be more worried about it "friction welding". Stainless fasteners can weld if they are overtightened, and you have to drill them out. I would also like to hear from Jerry on this one, but I'm also sure he wouldn't recommend something that wasn't suitable.
