Is your sat nav moving?
« on: October 11, 2018, 01:09:06 PM »
After suffering for months with my sat nav mount moving on the ball joints, no matter how tight I tried to fasten it, I have finally cured it. My sat nav stays in place now no matter how rough the road.
The solution is Carbon Fibre Gripper Paste. Which is a paste containing minute abrasive particles and can be purchased for a couple of quid from any decent cycle shop.
I just put a smear of this paste on the ball joints before refitting the clamp. The mount now stays where I put it, regardless of how bumpy the road.
Result😂
I used to be young and stupid.
Now I'm old and mental😈

I use a zip tie around my Wunderlich lip to stop mine drooping - Smutty minds the lot of you.

A quick squirt of my daughters hair spray was applied to the ball joints two years ago and the GPS has not moved since despite many thousands of sometimes badly corrugated Australian dirt roads.
If you are using the SW Motech mount the problem is that the ball on the mount is smooth not grippy like RAM mounts are.
