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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
