My son wants a satnav holder for the dashboard so went to Stephanis, who sell satnavs. They said the only ones they sell are the type that adhere to the actual windscreen; when he said he thought it was illegal to have anything fitted to the windscreen they said they had never heard of such a ruling and had sold many of these.
A: What is the ruling?
B: Where can you buy locally the weighted universal holder or the type that fits into the cd slot?

By law, you are not allowed anything fixed to the windscreen.

But judging by the number of cars with dreamcatchers/crosses/icons/cds hanging from the rear view mirror, if you hung the satnav by two bits of string, this would be allowed.

Sorry, never seen the weighted bean bag type sold here.

I've had SatNav and Dashcam attached to the windscreen by suckers for years, in reasonable places not blocking visibility. No comments from MoT or police guy after an idiot shunted my backside.

No, I haven't either. I bought mine on Amazon. It's easy to stow it out of sight in the glove box so as not to attract potential thieves.

Rgds,
