Cant make Tomtom mount stick to anything

I just bought a Tomtom from Circuit City and it came with a suction cup mount but no directions. (it was a display model) I cannot figure out how to make it suction to anything. I see where it locks and unlocks when twisted but the cup looks flat and doesn't stick. HELP!

You need to pull the two ears on the sides of the suction cup away from the windshield before you tighten it down. its really easy once you figure it out. hope this helps

TomTom does not stick to window any longer


That is pretty typical.

If you want to mount it to the window, then make sure the glass surface is completely clean. A generous amount of saliva on the suction cup will keep it up on the glass for a while.

You are better off using the adhesive backed suction cup disks and mount it to your dashboard.

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.

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
