I have been looking at the suction cup mount for my truck but not sure if state law will allow it where I live . That mount probably would not work on my dash . I really do not want to put tape on the dash that may cause damage later on if I try to get it off. I just wondered if any of you guys or girls have tried to make a base with magnets in it for sticking it on your dash . I figure the one that the camera is mounted to when you get it would be stable . A wood or other custom made base would work with the original base fastened to it. . My dash is not very padded and I think it would work but I have not had a chance to try a magnet on the dash because of cold weather and snow . Has anyone tried this ?
