Keep in mind SOA recommends against mounting anything on certain areas on the dash and windshield because of the airbags and Eyesight (check your manual).
My mount is placed in the lower left hand corner of the windshield. Tip: for this mount apply almost boiling water to the suction cup so it adheres well (rather than the recommended warm). Over three months in the hot desert southwest, a few sudden jolts, and it still sticks.
I use a CD mount. Works perfectly, and could also be used as a dash cam that way. I keep mine mounted vertically as I like the Waze presentation better that way. Then the camera is just over the top of the dash.
Hardly an obsession, just using it as the useful tool it is.
