Make sure the windshield is clean. Moisten the round ****** and push on to the windshield. It should stay there unless there is a defect in the ****** or the windshield is not clean and smooth.

Have tom tom go 910 and can't separate unit from windshield suction cup holder


holding the gps and mount in your hands, looking at it sideways, push the release on the mount (at the cradle) and tip the bottom of the gps toward the top.

is kind of tips into place, if you know what i mean. it can be a real pain sometimes getting them separated.

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,

Mount no longer sticks to windshield


Well a new mount suction cup will need to be purchased. you can grab one at radioshack.com you alsmo might want to wet the plunger then try to stick it. Or clean of that dirty windshield and try again.

2 solutions

1. clean the windshield and apply a little water to the back of it.
2. Buy a new suction cup.

thats all I hope you to stop by and rate it thanks.

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.

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.

Tom tom gps adhesive plate


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

The tom tom mounting for the windscreen keeps fallng off


I have had the same problem a few times. The only thing that seems to help me is to put the mount on the windshield first, ensuring that I push it firmly into place, and then slide the gps unit into it.

Tom Tom GPS X ONe


Any shop that specializes in installing car audio equipment should be able to hard wire the unit to the car's electrical system. Be sure you choose a reputable shop. But be aware - hard wiring may make it possible to see that you have a GPS unit (visible wiring, etc.) and they are very popular items to steal. If a thief were to see any sign you own one, they may break into the vehicle looking for the unit, even if you have taken the unit itself with you. Good luck.
