Mount My Garmin?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone found a ProFit VSM G3 type mount for the IS250? I don't want to use any windshield mount and really like the ProFit style - but can't find one for the IS250.

Thanks

It is possible that a Pro.Fit G3 meant for another Lexus or other model will fit your IS. It depends on whether your IS has a decently sized flat place to attach a bracket after you remove the radio. Look at the instructions for the LS430: http://www.pro-fit-intl.com/Adobe/MV-50-03-G3-p14.pdf

It also might be possible to cut off part of the hidden portion of a G3 bracket to make it fit your car. All these brackets are held in place as much by the pressure between the radio and dash pad as they are by the bracket screws.

I used a Pro.Fit Legend bracket to mount a Magellan GPS in my 00 LS400. I doubled up two Pro.Fit extension brackets to mount a Garmin to the same bracket used for the phone cradle in our Camry. More info is in my gallery: http://us.lexusownersclub.com/forums/index.php?showuser=2157&tab=gallery

You might have to get a little inventive but my bet is that you can make one of the G3 brackets work in your IS.
