Ever wonder how many parts go into creating a RAM Mount? In our Friday Feature, Rick from Toronto, shares the different parts he used for his truck's windshield mount.
Rick says, "[I was] trying to find a good location in my truck for my GPS. I thought of RAM mounts since I've used them before and loved them. I used the suction cup mount on my windshield to hold my Garmin eTrex HCx. The GPS is great because I can use it in my truck, on my bike, on my motorcycle and for geocaching."
Wondering what parts Rick used to securely mount his GPS? Here is a breakdown:
RAM Mount Locking Suction Mount Base: the locking rubber base provides an extra strong hold on smooth, nonporous surfaces (glass is recommended).
RAM Mount Diamond Plate with 1 inch Ball (Rick used two plates): the universal plate connects to the arm socket. The 1 inch ball allows the mount to be flexible with its positioning.
RAM Mount Garmin eTrex Color Cradle: the high strength plastic cradle customized to fit the Garmin eTrex Legend Cx allows access to all cables when the GPS is in the cradle.
RAM Mount Medium Arm B-Socket: with a tightening screw on the side of the arm, the socket allows the arm to pivot and adjust the angle.
Garmin eTrex Legend HCx: an outdoor handheld navigator that quickly locates its user's position in even the deepest woods.
