I just use the suction cup for mine. I put it on the far side of the windshield to the right of the passenger. I don't look at while on the track, just like to review the data later.

Curious to see what you end up doing with yours, keep us posted

Most use the suction cup mounts.

ProClip has a assortment of mounts on their website that clip into place:



It does block the vent slightly, but it is an alternative. Check their website to see if any of them suits your needs.

Solo mount tie-wrapped on air vent. Works great, zero cost.

The Solo will work better if it has a clear view of the sky. Keep it up on the dash for best reception
