I'm posting this from another section that I think is relevant. Does anyone have different colors of the Camaro for the Garmin? Thanks in advance!

Bump? Anyone have a white one with black stripes? It would be much appreciated.

Thanks for this bump. Read through all the posts and was wondering what's the latest on a good dash mount. That universal one did look good and placed just right in front of the AC/Heat vent, but you (Sir Nuke) didn't didn't like it?? Anyone else have any luck with one not on top of the dash or attached to the window?? I have a TomTom XXL 550M.

The VENT mount is too flimsy......ESPECIALLY since yours is one of the BIG (5") models. I want to be able to see my GPS without having to truely take my eyes off the road....with that in mind....for me....the only good place to mount them is either on the windshild, or get one of the bean-bag mounts.

I mount mine next to the A-piller so its bearly above the dash. Considering that is Texas, I can't see out the windshild there for there are two stickers there, the registration and the safety inspection.....of course I have a hard wire kit installed so I don't have a cord hanging across the dash either.

Thanks for the feedback. I found the vent one on line and Amazon had it for a little over $8., so I figured why not give it a try. I read somewhere that this was a newer/improved version. Was yours # TTEP129-ST-RVC??

Awesome

Thanks Sir Nukes,

I just bought my TomTom for Germany and that was the first thing i did. My Camaro isn't even scheduled to be here till FEB 21st. But ill be ready to roll as soon as it is. I have the same color as you so it makes it much easier than to redo the whole process.

This is a fun thread. I replaced my Garmin with a 1530 VIA LMT, and totally amazed my wife by putting a modded mini version of her SGM Camaro in it. I just had to change the body color to add my IOM.

The little research I've done on them, it appears I can get a better deal from Amazon, Best Buy, Office Depot, etc.

I've ordered my car, and it should arrive mid-Sept to 1st of Oct. Maybe I can save some money getting it some other place than the dealership. What would you advise?

Also, I want to download a voice from the internet for it. It's a voice called "Selina." Here's a link for that voice.

Wondering if you have any suggestions on what model of TomTom I should get that would have lifetime maps, and I would be able to use this voice from Selina? Warning, her voice is a little risque, and I don't mean to offend you, or anyone else here.

I have had numerous different models.....I currently have a XXL 540S and love it.....BUT, the dealer is charging about TWICE what you could get it elsewhere. SO, get one at one of the places you mentioned, or even eBay. If you get one off eBay, just ensure its NEW, in UNOPENED box. The 540S in one of last years models, but there are still a lot out there still in stores, which means you can get them cheaper. And for $140-$150.

Here is a link to the Tom Tom site.....you can see all the new models. the very most important thing is if get one that has "Life Time" maps, the XXL 540 series does come with Lifetime Maps. Not ALL of the new models do. IF your are looking at one of the new models, you will want one that has the 5" wide screen like the VIA 1505 or higher. They start at $170. As far as the voices go, there are a TON of free voices that are available....I can say for absolute sure the one you found onj that site..but it is FREE.

Well I just ordered the XXL 540S from the TomTom site. It goes for $140.67. Thanks for the help. I think this will be a good starter unit for me. They have so many different models, it gets quite confusing for a beginner.

As I mentioned before, its the model I have now and have had it for about 1 1/2 years....you will love it....you will be able to do more with it than most people will want.

I mount mine by the A pillar, the view isn't obstructed that way, and seeing as how here in Texas, that part of the windshield has the registration and safety sticker on it anyway.
