Hi all 1st post
I have bought my wife a 66 plate VW UP that didn’t come with Sat nav. I have eventually found a dashboard mount that fits but wanted some advice on a sat nav that would fit the mount ( pic attached )
any help would be appreciated

regards

That's a VW mount for a phone, to use the Maps & More Satnav app, issued with all the higher spec post 2016 cars, not made for a satnav.
I had the issue when I bought our first 18 plate Tsi, and couldn't find a satnav to fit. Not because of the size, but because of the plug at the back of a satnav wouldn't allow the unit to fit into the VW mount nicely.
In the end I bought a dashboard mount and a good quality Garmin satnav. Did exactly the same when I bought my Gti last year.
I suppose you could make one fit, but it would mean cutting / shutting the VW mount for the unit to sit back flush with the front face of the mount.

Thank you for the quick reply, I guess a dashboard mout nav is the way to go

Afraid so, I bought two of these Garmin heavy Friction mounts, and they're great, don't wobble about & stay where they're put.
One in the Mrs' Tsi, one in my car.
Did you just place that over the top of the current dock station?

Yep, exactly that, but you can place it where you like.
