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
This is the most common problem with the suction cup. Try to humidify it with water. This will get better suction. However it will leave a mark on your window when your remove it but it is the only way to get it more sticky.
This is pretty common and a regular aftermarket universal one is my recommendation to you.
Another issue is that the screen in the area you want to attach must be super clean. I use isopropynol to clean the area and the back of the suction cup only then do I wet it slightly with clean water (don't lick it LOL)
These cups are also subject to suction failure in large temperature swings (I live in Canada so I can tell you about those)
The after market ones do seem better from personal experience.
Use a computer or TV screen cleaning solution on the windshield and the cup then lick your finger and wet the cup. Also check for a lever that adds to the suction, if this lever is on your device and is in the wrong position, it will not stick. Also you should affix the unit to the window when the temps are at a median point, if you put it on when the car is 100 degrees it will fall off in colder weather, and vise versa for 0 degrees.
