Recommendations for GPS dashboard mounts on slanted dash?

My GPS is a TomTom XL 330-S. The heater and AC in winter and summer play hob with the suction cup windshield mount. I'd like to get a dashboard mount that doesn't depend on the suction cup sticking to anything and won't slide on the dash. My vehicle is a Jeep with a dashboard that slants toward the windshield. Any recommendations?

I would suggest either a Tom Tom friction mount like this one (which is compatible with your model), or an aftermarket mount that slides into an air conditioner vent, depending on how your dashboard is set up.

I have a Garmin friction mount that doesn't slide. Great mount but I'm not certain if it fits a Ton-Tom.

They don't. That's why Tom Tom makes their own.

I have thus one for my Garmin and it is so much better than dealing with the suction cup one falling. I had the bean bag style in a rental and it seemed to slide a bit.

Awesome, but it won't work with the OP's GPS.
