So the rail would be like a mini towel rail positioned out about an inch from the surface of the dash. As long as the 'feet' were reasonably wide ( say 1-1/2") then the dash would be quite strong enough.

Another solution : If you find that once you have got the 'right' angle (and don't need it to be variable), then you can just pack out the top or bottom mounting points on the GPS mount to get the right angle.

The angle of the dash is likely to be pretty close to the right angle any way.
Ian,

Thanks for the ideas. I will most likely use solution #2. Once it's set I won't need to mess with it.

My order is placed and I'm looking forward to getting it!!
