I want to rotate the screen on my GO 6200 so I can mount it upside down

I want to rotate the screen on my GO 6200 so I can mount it upside down. I have a classic mini and it suits the windscreen better to have the TomTom mounted so it sits below the screen

    Hi @Bugs7

    The holder rotates. It is very stiff so takes some effort.

    Twist the Mount through 180 degrees

    The ball joint is tight, it has to stand the weight of the 6" Units....
    You will need the strength of the God Thor and the wrists of a Dentist to rotate the mount :)

    To those who have very kindly answered - I have managed to physically turn the unit upside down, but unfortunately, unlike on my dear old VIA 135, the maps do not rotate to sit the right way up.
    in essence the GO 6200 is upside down, but so is the map - is there a way to get the map to rotate - I have been looking but I cannot find a control to do this?

    You are setting-up the GO 6200 to be mounted on the Dashboard ???
    Works 'OK' for me....

    Here is how I want to mount my GO 6200, so that it leaves most of the windscreen clear. The unit is upside-down (The TomTom logo being upside down). The VIA 135 would at this point flip the map etc so it was clearly readable. As you can see from the image, the map and data are as inverted as the unit.

    I want to be able to flip the map etc.

    I hope this clarifies my question.

    Ahhhh a picture is worth a thousand words :)

    Sorry 'NO' only the Later/Latest Tomtom Rider 4xx & 5xx Auto-rotate the screen :/

    That is disappointing particularly as the old VIA 135 also autorotated, obviously to enable flexibility in mounting.

    Hi YamFazMan, unfortunately that would still have the TomTom taking up quite a large section of my Classic Mini's windscreen. If a long reach mount was available so it took the unit at least below the level of the screen, that could be an idea, but not sure such a beast exists.
    Thanks for your suggestions though.
