    I bought this mount from ebay, it is way better than the joker tomtom uses. the stock tomtom for me, always bobbed around like a float @ sea and would DROP every now & then.

    This new mount gives a garmin like grip on the windshield & stays firmly planted there.

    Thanks for the info. This looks identical to one I may order from Semsons:
    http://www.semsons.com/tomtommount.html

    How is the lever on the base used? Does it engage or release the suction cup?

    I just used that exact one for my 36 hours of driving during my vacation.

    It is AMAZING. So solid you feel like you can pull the windshield off if you don't unlatch it first :D.

    I use the TomTom mount for around town but for long trips, that is my mount of choice now.

    I highly recommend it.

    I believe it is made by Arkon.

    yes looks like the same 1. the lever is used to engage & release the suction cup pressure, just like the garmin mounts. like stated earlier the mount is ROCK SOLID, the unit does not bob at all. no fear of falling tomtoms.

    The one at Semsons is made by Akron and is on sale right now for 9.99 + shipping. Just ordered it. It is the same one you have picture of.
