I put the adhesive mounting disk on the windshield. Oh my god! I didn't know it 's permanent. How can i remove that ? Please help me.


Goo Gone, mineral spirits, kerosene, or if you're really ********** and want drastic results, lacquer thinner which will probably melt and take the cheap plastic vinyl and whatever else off your automobile too, but hey the mounting disk and any adhesive residue is GONE. - LOL

Won`t stick to the dash


Did you clean the area with rubbing Alcohol? If not do that, any dirt or plastic protection chemicals like Armorall will not allow the adhesive pad to stick. If the pad is now useless remove it and use 3M double side adhesive tape in it place.

How do I install the tomtom in my car. It cam with a big round disk with adhesive on back that I assume goes on dash or window.. But ho do I mount the tom tom to that disk? The modle did not come with...


Some TOMTOM have the EasyFold attachment: It has a large ring that you push against the back of the GPS while twisting it a bit. In some TT GPS, notably the GO series, the windshield or dashboard attachment ends in a rectangular shaped piece that slides on the back where the speaker is located.

We installed the car cradle to the windshield but receiver won't adhere to the disk. Please tell us what we did wrong. Thanks, Pat skillman


i think you mean the mount wont adhere to the disk..normally the disk is not used to mount the gps to the windshield, is more for the dash area or another spot where the suction cup wont adhere. the are rare occasions where the disk is needed for the windshield though, but its rare. try ataching it to the windshield without the disk. lift lever at suction cup, press the mount firmly against the windshield, then press the locking lever down to secure the mount. the picture below is the wount in the unlocked position.

This adhesive disk provides an alternative to mounting your Magellan GPS to the windshield of your vehicle. The disk adheres firmly to your dashboard or virtually any surface. Then attach the suction cup of your windshield mount to the disk.

Use an 'alcowipe' available from your local chemist.
The alcohol in the wipe will disolve the glue and will not affect your windscreen.

Aternatively get a bottle of 'Spirit Alcohol', also available from the chemists and use a cloth to dissolve the glue

I just bought the magellan maestro, and I can't get the suction cup to stick. The surface is clean and we wet it, but it loosens rapidly.


The GPS unit comes with an adhesive disk that must be installed on the surface where you want to place the GPS unit. The suction cup will only work with this adhesive disk. Once the adhesive disk is installed, the suction cup will hold. Here's the instructions magellan web site...

  1. Clean and dry the dashboard where the adhesive disk is going to be installed using enclosed alcohol pad.
  2. Remove the protective paper cover from the bottom of the adhesive disk; place the bottom of the adhesive disk firmly on the dashboard.
  3. Apply even pressure on the top of the adhesive disk for a secure fit (Allow 24 hours to cure).
  4. Place suction cup mount on top of adhesive disk.
  5. Firmly press suction cup mount down flat against the adhesive disk, press the suction cup lever down to secure the suction cup to the adhesive disk.

I recently got a new car and had to transport my GPS to my my new car. Problem is the mount that you put on the dash will no longer stick to it. How do I fix this problem?


Hello Hoshiko,

You don't say what kind of mount you are using. There are a couple different kind. One kind uses an adhesive (like double sided sticky tape) to secure the mount to the dashboard. For this kind of mount you can simply purchase some new adhesive tape to apply. This is available from most hardware or electronics stores.

The second type of mount uses a suction cup type device to secure the GPS to the dashboard. For this type you will want to make sure you are attaching the mount to a smooth, nonporous surface. Make sure that the area you are attempting to afix the suction cup to is clean and dry. Make sure that the suction cup itself is clean and moisten it with just a little bit of water before attempting to get the mount to stick.

If you still can't get the mount to stick to the dashboard you might need to look at other mounting options or purchase a replacement mount.

Best Regards,
Ken

350 disk


The adhesive disk is for attaching to a dashboard, not a windshield.  The unit is supplied with a suction cup for use on a windshield.
