    Sygic does speak the names of the streets, but not by default. You have to go into the regional settings and download a different voice pack. Just download any of them that say TTS and it will start speaking names.

    This one has a lot more reviews and is about 1/3rd of the cost. Also like that it isn't trying to fit a million devices (5-10", really??)

    To each his own. I don't like windshield mounts. They hold the phone/tablet too far from me for my taste or maybe for my older eyes.

    The dashboard mount holds fine even on a pebbled finish but the surface must be flat. I used the plastic stick on round thingie. Placed it badly, then moved it a little and it left no mark and moved well. The suction cup for the back of the phone or tablet holds my N7 just fine. Have driven over bumps and never had it jar the phone loose. The mount has a framework that expands and works in portrait or landscape mode as a backup to the suction cup. It also tightens with the usual nut.
