Windshield Mounting Unmounting

I am having trouble trying to figure out the mount/unmount gadget on the back of my unit. The diagrams in the instruction manual are not intuitive. There is a flat black disk in the kit. Then there is some sort of suction cup on the back of the unit with paper on it. I know I have to take the paper off to get it to suction on to the window. Then there is a lock/unlock symbol on the back in a hard place to see or reach. Then, how do I unclip the unit from the mount to take it out. I park in a public garage. Overall mounting this thing on the window and easily removing it to take it home seems like a tricky task. Any ideas or hints would be appreciated.

    Thanks Robert,

    I talked to some other users and they all agree mounting is tricky. Your tips are helpful. Just seems like a huge learning curve for something that should be easy. I can see why people by after-market mounting systems. I'll give this a whirl and see what happens!

First the round plate... that has a sticky circle on the bottom.... you remove the tape and stick it on a surface where you want the gps... then when you want to mount the gps you suction cup it to that disk. now for the suction cup... when it is disengaged the plastic suction cup will be loose. to attach it to the plate or window... you swing the small arm on the base of it up or down... you will see as it will lock the suction... the gps should clip onto the holder so you can leave the holder where it is and remove the gps and slip it into your pocket.

Not the best instructions but you will get the idea

Finally figured out the correct arrangement or configuration through trial and error (and my wife's puzzle solving ability).

Given the price of the wall mount, I would think they could do a better job.

Unsure how to mount tomtom on car windshield


I was perplexed by the lack of instruction as well. However, I took the unit to my car and realized that the black disk is not needed for mounting the unit to the windshield. If you look carefully at the bumpy plastic ring just above the suction area, there are two little pictures on the back of a lock; one open and one closed. With the ring in the open position, push it against the windshield and turn it to the closed position. It then sticks to the glass very well. I now just snap the unit in and out of the mounting ring that I leave stuck to the glass. I hope this helps. I assume that the presence of the black disk is to bring people closer together with digital communication.

You did the update ver 1.1?  This is suppose to fix the mounting and unmounting of external USB devices.  Sounds like it never unmounted.
