Question about Tomtom GO 720 GPS

Open Question

Replacement TomTom Mount

It doesn't take long before the supplied suction cup with the TomTom GO 720 becomes less adherent to the windscreen resulting in the device constantly falling off. Is there a replacement suction cup available or a more efficient and cost effective replacement mount available.

SOURCE: Suction cup mount keeps falling off windshield

The suction cups ****, don't they? ;-)

The problem is that temperature variations (bright sun vs. cloudy day) causes pressure changes inside the vacuum seal, and it eventually fails.

You can try spraying the cup with water before attaching it...the water helps the cup keep a better seal. Vaseline works even better.

Ultimately, I ended up buying a universal mount that fits right onto one the dash ventilation louvers...no problems since.

SOURCE: how do you attach the grip to the suction cup

On the end of the suction cup there's a ball shape. On the grip there's a small plastic cylindrical piece. Push the ball into the cylindrical part. It's a tight fit so you'll have to push hard.

My suction cup for my in car camera will not stick to windscreen keeps falling off how to make it suction properly and not fall off


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,

This is a fairly common issue especially with aftermarket tinted car windscreen 'film'.
You can try prolong the suction by wetting the suction cup with water of very slightly soapy water before applying it to your 'clean' windscreen area.
As for the dashboard, for some models, TomTom provide a plastic circle to which the suction cup attach to. The plastic circle is first 'permanently' attached to your dashboard with double-sided adhesive tapes.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go.

We installed the car cradle to the windshield but receiver won't adhere to the disk. Please tell us what we did wrong. Thanks, Pat skillman


i think you mean the mount wont adhere to the disk..normally the disk is not used to mount the gps to the windshield, is more for the dash area or another spot where the suction cup wont adhere. the are rare occasions where the disk is needed for the windshield though, but its rare. try ataching it to the windshield without the disk. lift lever at suction cup, press the mount firmly against the windshield, then press the locking lever down to secure the mount. the picture below is the wount in the unlocked position.

This adhesive disk provides an alternative to mounting your Magellan GPS to the windshield of your vehicle. The disk adheres firmly to your dashboard or virtually any surface. Then attach the suction cup of your windshield mount to the disk.

There is a black disc but I do not see any instructions for using it.Does it mount on the windshield?


my Magellen came with a black disk with adhesive on 1 side. Intended to be adhered to any smooth surface (e.g., windshield). The mount for my unit includes a suction cup. So, mount black disk to windshield and attach suction cup to smooth side of black disk. Be sure disk is positioned where suction cup and bracket and GPS will have sufficient room to mount everything.

Windscreen holder for tomtom


I didn't like the suction mount because it doesn't always hold very well and it was a little distracting. I found a vent mount at mountguys.com for less than $15 delivered that I am very happy with.
