Broken mini USB port on TomTom One

While plugged into the charger, my TomTom One and its suction-cup mount came unstuck from my windshield, and the mini USB port inside the TomTom unit popped off the printed circuit board. Since the warranty expired over a year ago, I opened up the unit and attempted to put the USB input back in place, but it did not seem to work; the unit will not charge anymore. Would this require sending the unit in for repair?

It can be done with difficulty. I change them on a regular basis though as i run a repair business.

If you want me to change it I can do it for a small fee.

I need instructions on how to mount the nuvi 200w to my windshield


To secure the nuvi 200w to your windshield with the included suction cup mount (pictured below),


steve_con_6.jpeg

center the GPS on the clip, and tip the bottom edge on the bracket. Push the top of the GPS against the top clip until it clicks into place. Hold the bracket and GPS near the windshield where you like it best. Note where the suction cup is on the windshield in relation to the mirror, etc. Remove the GPS from the mount's clip by pushing the top tab back from the top of the GPS.

Clean the windshield (or portion that the suction cup will be stuck against) with a paper towel or newspaper and ammonia solution like Windex, etc. Clean the suction cup with the paper towel and Windex, too.

Lift the lever at the base of the mount - is shown in the picture above - if it isn't already. With the mount oriented as shown in the picture above, press the suction cup against the windshield where desired with one hand. Hold the mount firmly against the glass and use your other hand to press the lever on the base back toward the suction cup and glass. Press until it lays flat against the base / suction cup. Plug the power cord into the GPS and reinstall the GPS in the mount clips as done earlier.

To remove from the windshield, release the GPS from the mount clips, and lift the lever away from the base / suction cup. Locate the tab that is connected to the suction cup edge near the lever. Pull on the tab away from the glass to break the suction seal and remove from the windshield.

If this was helpful, please rate it 4 thumbs up. Thanks & good luck!

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

Mounting of gps can't mount on windsheild.


Tomtom GPS devices come with a variety of windshield suction mounts. All have in common that the windshield and the suction cup both must be clean; use a mild soap dispersed in some warm water to remove any dirt. Rinse properly. Sometimes it helps to keep the cup a little moist.

Make sure the cup is not warped due to previous exposure to heat, and check for any nicks in the rubber. Small damage may easily make the mount unusable and you'd need to get a replacement.

Models with a lever mechanic: open the lever (cup becomes flat), press the cup against the windshield and while keeping pressure, close the lever. It will lift the middle of the cup away from the windshield, causing a vacuum.

Models with a ring around the cup base: Turn the ring all the way counter-clockwise (cup becomes flat), press cup against windshield and while keeping pressure, turn the ring clockwise 90 degrees. This requires some force, but in my experience these mounts stick more reliable,

What accessories to use for what?


You would use your windshield mount and suction it to the plastic horse shoe mount as a dash mount, and there is tons of other mounting options that you may wish to look at.
You can find many different TomTom mouting solutions such as vent mount, viser mount, cup holder mount, vehicle specific mount, windshield mount along with dash mount options at www.autonavdirect.com or www.autonav2000.com.
Good Luck

Won't stick to windshield


The suction cup mount should be attached on a clean, flat surface. If the windshield is too dirty or curved you'll have problems. Try first to find as flat spot as possible and then clean the glass with dish-washer liquid (the type you use for hand wash - not for the dish-washer machine) or similar agent.

Unable to attach my new tomtom 930 go to the windshield mount, how do you unscrew the mount site at the back to fit into the nmount?


I have owned an off brand GPS unit for about 3 years and wanted to upgrade to a TomTom GPS unit. I have recently purchased a TomTom ONE XL. The TomTom will not stay mounted to my windshield. I have cleaned the suction cup and the windshield and nothing has helped. After the unit has been mounting for about 30~45 minutes it will fall off the windshield. I am afraid if this continues my TomTom GPS unit will be damaged. I have never had this problem before and as I mentioned earlier, I have owned a GPS unit for about 3 years. I noticed that the TomTom mount is very cheap built. Can you send me a better mount for my TomTom One XL? I am very disappointed in the unit so far and I only owned it for about 2 weeks.
