    Hi

    I use the Dashboard Mount discs (See link below) and have the device mounted centrally on the dashboard between the driver and passenger

    The Mount set For Windscreen use...

    Mount twisted around the ball joint 180 Degrees....
    Set for Dashboard use...

    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 :)

    heater or ac should not effect but if you drive in extreme heat and sun then windscreen not good
    why not on a dashboard

    I attach mine to the window screen, but NOT in the Centre, but on the Right Hand Side (in the UK) - since I find it less likely to obstruct my vision & its also simpler to reach out to the controls!

    thnak you for the reply

    tomtom staff did tell me the heater and air con wont do my tomotm any harm but i just dont want to risk it.

    when it became faulty i was worried i would have to spend 300 pound again for another one.

    i used to leave it in car but now i take it in with me everytime.

    I've got mine attached to my A-pillar with a custom mount - gives me a perfect view of it, but it's completely out of the way, and no obstruction of the view ahead.
