    You need to check and see which is comfortable for you. I always place at the top center (below RVM).

    Can we mount it on dash? will it spoil the effectiveness of the suction mount because of roughness of surface and also due to the traces of dash cleaning liquid.

    can you try by wetting the circumference of the suction holder and clamp it in?
    It might work.

    I have it fixed in the center below the rear view mirror. Top right may be distracting. I would prefer to avoid fixing anything on the right half of the windscreen.

    If you want to fix it on the dash, you can think of using the double sided tape. Fix some three layers of tape on the suction cup and cut it properly shape so that it doesnt look odd. Fix the cup on the dashboad. The fixed tape would look something like this.

    Our cars doesn't have the flat surface at the center. I also think I should avoid right , because when we drive our mind do some calculation and the more thing on right means we are giving more work to the portion that is dedicated for keeping track of the right edge of vehicle. That could be the reason why traffic signboards are always on opposite side of driver. Ideal place is on center dash, the next best option would be center top.

    Cut a glass piece slightly bigger than the suction cup and fix it on the dash using double sided tape.
    Now you can fix the suction holder to it on the dash. It offers better grip.

    If you have Android Smartphone then download NAVFREE navigation software from Google Play Store. It works amazing. Currently I am using it on my Xperia Pro in Sheffield.
