I checked with the Traffic Seargant at the Chico Police Department where I work, and he scoured the recent traffic laws, and could find nothing regarding dash-mounted GPS units. You can mount a GPS on the windshield on the lower corner of either the right or left side (5-inch square on the left, 7 inch square on the right).He did caution that a dash-mounted GPS could possibly obstruct the driver's view (which IS illegal) and result in a ticket or an accident.Ed (of Ed & Julie)

Subject: [NUTS] New California Law?
I figured if anyone would know the answer to this question it would be this group. I know last year California made it illegal to mount a GPS on the windshield of a vehicle, with the exception of the lower left hand corner. However, one of my wife's "friends" claimed today that there is a new California law that prohibits the beanbag dash type mounts and that our placement of the beanbag on our dash is illegal. I told her what I thought about her "friend" and her friend's "opinion." However, I thought I would check with all of the "NUTS" out there and see if any of you have heard of anything to this new law. I could not find anything out about it using Google search. If any of you know about this "new" law, I would like to have a vehicle code reference.
Thanks, Sierra Rat (Jack)
