Upside down Via 135 — TomTom Community

Upside down Via 135

Currently using a Via 135 which is mounted in an air vent which puts it in a perfect position. Almost looks like it is built into the dashboard. Unfortunately, the last TomTom I bought (can't remember which model) did not have the feature where the image always stayed right side up which was necessary to mount it where I wanted it. I could get the TT in the right position but the image was always upside down.I am currently considering buying a Go Essential but need to know if the image is reversible to save the hassle of returning it. Can anyone help?

    No the screen doesn't Auto Rotate
    You twist the ball joint through 180 Degrees

    I am aware of that, but the image on the screen rotates with the unit
    and I need to rotate the unit but keep the image on the screen the right way up.
    Because the swivel point is not central on the unit, rotating it moves the screen either upwards or downwards and that is important in the positioning on my dashboard.

    Sorry Yam, that doesn't help me. If you look at your phone or Ipad, and rotate it, the image on the screen always orientates itself right way up. If that is not the case with the TT, I can't install it where I want to.

    'Yes' my Via 120 Live Go 825 Live and Rider 400 all Auto rotate...

    You can't mount the Go Essentials 'Magnetic Mount' part of the mount upside-down... The device would fall off the mount at the first Speed hump or section of Rough road

    Maybe???...
    The Easyport Mount has the same size ball as the Go Essentials Magnetic Mount
    Heres an Easyport Mount + The Magnetic Mount from the Go Essential
