Question How do you have your GPS in your car?

Hey everyone so I was sitting around the other day and I was trying to come up with a better way to put my gps in my car. Currently I have a nuvi 200w and a 99 bmw 323is and its just on the stock thing stuck to the windshield...

So I was wondering what cool or intresting ways people have come up with when putting or mounting the gps in their cars?

(Pictures would be good I will post mine later today.)

In my E36 I used to have my sat radio receiver mounted off of the sunglass holder under the OBC. I removed the trim and discovered enouh holes for me to mount the arm that holds the unit in there, and with enough twists and turns, got it to work. However, this was sat radio, which is more of a set it and forget it type of thing. With a GPS, you may have to look down a few times while driving, which is dangerous.

Good luck.

I don't have one, but really the only way I'd ever see myself mounting one is in the bottom left corner of the windshield.
