I have a C3 Picassa (and love it) and would like a Sat Nav. However, having borrowed a friend's the other day, I have found the windscreen to be far away, and even the side glass panel to be too far away for seeing the screen adequately at times.
I was able to temporarily get the SatNav secure in the area behind the steering wheel (a bit of a Heath Robinson job) and was brilliant while on straight roads/motorways but, when navigating streets (that I didn't know) I found that by turning the steering wheel, as one does to turn corners, it would block my view of the SatNav.
Unfortunately, the texture of the dashboard/interior isn't smooth and I've found the sticky gel pieces won't stick, nor will the fixtures that fit to windows.
So, has anyone any suggestions as to any likely solution, please? I don't want to permanently stick anything which would spoil the surface as and when removed, ie if/when I sold the car.
However, I'm still skeptical. Sorry. I bought a number of various pads to hold my phone (Galaxy S3) and they just don't hold to the dashboard surface. Certainly the heavier bean bag type pads sound good but I still wonder if they will hold in place
I'm hoping someone who's got the same car, C3 Picasso, has experienced the same issue and managed to find something that will hold on the textured dashboard
I don't want to be buying one thing after another without having some assurance that it will do the job.
Its weighted and has a non slip base and stays wherever you put it on the dashboard. As it doesn't leave a mark on the windscreen it doesn't attract unwanted attention. I just put it in under the front seat when I leave the car ( with the satnav in my pocket)
