This was with the 60CSX and seems to be the same with the Montana. The end position of the GPS is the same, but the way I did makes it more stable with the longer arm. Suppose you want a picture now?
That's with your DR, right?

I did end up with a 4" arm on my DR but my GS has the short one as seen here.



This length is stable - and still allows me to rotate the gps from Landscape to Portrait mode, depending on if I'm traveling North/South or East/West.

Actually, pictures never lie. I use the short arm on my DR as well.
