Suction cup does not hold device.


If the suction cup material is "old" , dry / hard, or the lever (that creates the suction) isn't working well, there's probably not much you can do to make it stick. Otherwise, consider adding some moisture (e.g. a very fine film of water) to the suction surface. It may work better. If it sticks well, avoid taking it off and putting it back on too frequently.

Garmen won't stick to dashboard


Hello,

What are you trying to apply to the dashboard? if you are trying to apply the suction cup it will not work. If you are finding that the dash adapter disk will not stick even after cleaning you may have used an oil based cleaner like Armor All try Rubbing alcohol to clean the area before applying the disk.


Hope this helps!

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,

Suction cup does not stick to the base of the tom tom..Everytime I try to attach the suction cup, it just falls over. Help


  1. If you will stick the suction cup to your windshield make sure to clean it first use dry clothe and put pressure while rubbing it to the windshield.
  2. After cleaning it before you stick the suction cup to the windshield make sure the lock is release and then put a pressure and then while pressing it then that's the time you will lock it.

Tomtomone stuck with frozen screen and wont switch off can switch off using the reset button but when switched back it sticks on the tomtomone screen


Your TomTom home software is corrupted:

1) Try a 'hard reset': while the power is on, stick a small (tooth/match) stick through the hole under your unit base and opposite to were the USB connector go, for a few seconds, remove the pressure on the stick will cause a complete system reboot if possible.

2) Check the health of your Tomtom One flash drive: connect to the computer, use Windows Explorer -> Properties -> Tools > Error-checking to scan and repair any problem.

3) Restore software: using TomTom Home, restore from a previous backup followed by a device update while connected online.

Hope it helps: let me know how you go and good luck!

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.

Tomtom one 125 easyport mount won't stick


The soft vinyl suction cup has two ears. Behind the ears are two depressions in the mount ring. The vinyl shapes itself into the depressions and forms two tiny gaps when you try to stick it to the windshield.

Place a pencil or other small round object between the ring and the soft vinyl part. Bend the vinyl outward. You may not be able to see the difference, but it should now stick
