Can't beat that for cheap. Personally I use a bogen super clamp with the head off an old tripod. Used it on jeep trips with the top down and just clamp it to the roll bar. In bad weather I used the head off a different tripod that was longer and clamped it to the grab handle. The head brought it up to dash level. The grab handle isn't as steady though. Didn't cost me anything, it was all left over equipment from my commercial photography days.
