Try using a friction mount. Its basically a bean bag mount with rubber grips on the bottom to prevent it from sliding on the dash. Much easier to remove than a window mount. Try looking on eBay for "friction mount" and also typing in the model of your GPS.

My garmin nuvi 350 suction mount falls from the windshield after several days.

I believe they all do that, I own a Garmin and I bought what looks like a bean bag because I got tired of my suction cup mount falling off my windshield. The nice thing about the bean bag mount is that you can move it closer to you and place it anywhere on your dash. I bought mine on ebay from the Mount Guys they have a big selection of mounts for all types of GPS's take a look you might want to make the change too.

I hope this helps you out and if it did please leave me some feedback

Everytime I come to a stop I hear a clunk and when I accelerate I hear it again. I can see the shifter moving but I've looked under the truck and nothing is missing or loose. Any ideas?

I would be taking a very close look at the transmission mounts. Two pieces of steel with a block of rubber between them. Over time the rubber will tear or separate from the steel.It's job is to dampen the movement of the drivetrain as well as hold the trann in place. Hope this helps.

I have a car that has a theft buster alarm that was installed before I purchased it. Now it decides when It will work and when it won't. I dont use the alarm, The car won't start and the battery looses...

Any Stereo Shop can remove the alarm for you.
The alarm module will be mounted under the dash.
Unplugging the harness from the alarm will solve your problems.

Sticking my nuvi 260W to windshield - after a few days often in sun [winter/spring Mass.] thesuction cup mount falls of to dashboard- risking damage to nuvi. advice? without having to use permanent...

Here is what I do. I clean the spot on the windshield very good with Windex or another good window cleaner. I also clean the suction cup surface while I am doing the windshield. Next I place the GPS next to the Rearview Mirror. and connect the suction cup. Then I take the power cord and use it to tie a knot around the suction cup mount and then I loop it around the Rearview mirrow twice leaving no slack between the GPS and the Mirror. Be sure to not block you view in the mirror. If the GPS come loose from the windshield it will just fall far enough for the power cable to catch it and will just be swiing there instead of falling to the dashboard or floor. This is kind of a Mickey Mouse way to do things but it works.

Suction cup problem

Make sure your windshield and the bottom of the suction cup is clean. Clean it with some warter & detergent and wipe dry. Try wetting the bottom of the suction cup before applying it to the window.

I recommend not using the window mount. I recommend using the dash friction mount. You take the risk of cracking your LCD screen when it falls.

1. The dash friction mount will not fall.
2. It's easily removable/
3. It's legal in all 50 states (window mount is not).

Everytime i move my laptop it locks up and turns its self off

Its most likely the connection between the battery and laptop map have come loose, try to clean them but don't shot circuit the battery.
Also a piece of hardware may have come loose and tilting made it fall out of position.
