I’m overseas until the 6th of October so there’s no great rush for mine.

All shipments are good to go  :028: as seen here
Shipments sent today by courier.

I included the large and the small rubber feet.
Will make a file with the pics I took while installing, and some tips and tricks that might help. 
I was alone doing so though, hence the pics are not really top notch quality, but it's pretty straight forward.

Will add that later today or tomorrow.

Cheers!

All,
Just to inform you, should you need to attach a second device, this exists from RAM:

https://www.rammount.com/part/RAM-B-217-1U

Double ball, with the same thread (as far as my knowledge of threads goes...)

Cheers!

A 1/4 inch NPT (tapered) thread is completely different from the M6 thread on the suggested single RAM ball! The outside diameter of a 1/4 inch NPT thread is over half an inch so not suitable for use with the sat nav bracket. The double ball mount is probably designed for screwing onto a pipe/pole (with the NPT thread at the end of the pipe/pole).

Cheers
