How to Install a GPS Mount in Your Car
Install a GPS holder, cell phone or other electronic device adapters to your dashboard without drilling or gluing. Here’s how.
Want a great way to mount your mobile tech in your car without drilling holes in your dashboard? How about a vehicle-specific bracket/adapter mounting system? You can buy a version for just about any car or device from pro-fit-intl.com. The mounting bracket for this 1999 Toyota Camry fits onto one of the radio fasteners. Other versions mount in different places. Then the device-specific adapter mounts to it.
Tools and materials required for this project:
– Mounting bracket
– Adapter for electronic device
Step 1: Attach the bracket to the radio.
Remove the trim bezel and one of the bolts that hold the radio in place. Then attach the bracket and reassemble.
Step 2: Install the device-specific adapter.
