Only have the tom tom and the car charger. Do I need to mount it

Do I need to mount it on the car or can I place it on the dashboard.
Going on a trip, have never used it before and have the permanent mount in my car which I will be using a rented car and can't find the suction mount.
So my question is. Can i HAVE it placed on the dash board plugged into the cigarette lighter etc. etc.

Feel stupid but got this at Christmas and I am computer/this type of thing illiterate. Ha
Please get back to me ASAP

How do I connect the garmin nuvu to portable friction mount


Hello.

The Garmin Nuvi GPS unit can be taken on the go or set up inyour vehicle. Most units come with a window suction mount that attachesdirectly to your window while some have a sticky dashboard mount. These twooptions can leave permanent marks on your car, with a dark circle on yourwindow or leftover adhesive on your dashboard. Use a friction mount to avoiddamaging your car. The mount uses bean bags to hold it in place withoutdamaging the dashboard.

Instructions
1 Place the friction mount bean bag on the center ofyour dashboard. 2 Snap the Nuvi unit into the plastic mount and set iton top of the bean bag mount. 3 Position the Nuvi at the angle you prefer for bestvisibility while driving. 4 Hold the mount in position and slide the switch tothe "Lock" position. 5 Connect the cables to the Nuvi and you are done.
Thanks for using fixya.

I am wondering why my Tom Tom One didn't come with a home charger ? Also, the diagram in the book about how to install my Tom Tom in my car is like Greek to me. Makes no sense at all. Can you tell me in...


First of all, Happy new year to you, If you got a suction holder with your device, lick it and stick it to the windscreen somewhere in the lower part of the screen, attach the car charger to it and you should be ready to go, As for the home charger, it should have been supplied in the box, so if it is still new and under warranty go back to the place it was purchased from and request one, hope this helps.

My tom tom 300 won't charge in the car and seems to drain quickly when on the mount. Do the charging mounts go bad?


Every piece of equipment fails at one point or another. Wear and Tear. The problem may be the battery or the charger. Try charging it at a USB port of a computer if you have the cable.
As to draining, you can enact battery power saving features on your unit.

What do you use to charge the tom tom 910 in the house


In the box you have a 'desktop' mount. Looks like the windscreen mount without the ******.
Also you will have got a mains power lead.
Plug the lead into the 'desktop mount' (Left hand side) of the stick up bit.
Plug in and put your 910 onto the mount. It will 'Click' into place
The green light will shine to show it's charging.

To release the unit from the mount PRESS in the button in the middle of the screen top rim and lift off.

Remember to turn of the power at the socket to stop wasting electricity

The usb part of the desktop mount goes into your pc so you can connect to TomTom home or just plain old 'back it up'
It is ok to have power switched on or off when connect to the pc, there is no need to unplug the jackplug.

Hope this helps

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.
