I just received a portable GPS that I'll be mounting on my dash, not my windshield. It came with an adhesive plate that sticks on the dash, but it doesn't seem very strong.
Anyone know of any clear adhesives that I could use to reinforce it? I'm looking for something that wont leave any permanent marks if I remove it. I was thinking about something like whatever they use to stick credit cards to paper, when you get them in the mail.. the booger like stuff. What is that?
Don't do it, it's Subicide!

a silicon sealants might help
I would try to stay away from silicon sealant, it may discolour the dash pad. Are you against using the windsheild mount? It really is the best and safest option. If that is entirely out of the question, you may want to try and fabricate a bracket. What type of car do you have, I may have a couple of suggestions for you...
...and it is very hard to remove glue (of "adhesive plate" or of "two-sided tape") from the dash... might use some weak solvents but that will definitely do something bad to your dash...
..."they use to stick credit cards to paper" - that is a silicon..
I ended up just putting the little sticky plate that came with the gps on the flat surface in front of the clock. My only concern is that as it starts to warm up more, it will pop off.
