You just have to push the ball part on the window mount into the socket part that holds the GPS. It's pretty tight, so you have to press pretty hard.

You must clean the window area using windex, or other cleaner, and wipe until dry. A clean winshield area provides the best suction, from the mounting bracket.
Slide the mounting bracket switch to Off & On a few times, make sure the suction cup is able to move(slightly) and that the small tap is facing the area with the notch in the metal.
After putting the switch to the middle, moisten the suction cup slightly
(saliva works bestter than water for some reason)
press it to the window with a slight amount of pressure
then move the switch, (Which should be set to Center!)
to lock it on firmly.
If this doesn't work, then there is a good chance the suction cup has become hardened by the sun. If that is the situation, you'll have to contact LG
(or a place that sells "knock off" brackets to get a replacement.)
I never leave my LG GPS in the car, when not in use. Even the bracket comes out, as I've seen what the sun can do to damage those plastic suction cups, fortunately, I learned it on a $5 replacement set for a Radar detector/Emergency Vehicle Alert device, and not a more expensive bracket.

Use an 'alcowipe' available from your local chemist.
The alcohol in the wipe will disolve the glue and will not affect your windscreen.
Aternatively get a bottle of 'Spirit Alcohol', also available from the chemists and use a cloth to dissolve the glue

The idea behind the disk thing (assuming one side is flat and the other has double-sided tape) is for you to be able to mount the disk, with the tape, pretty much anywhere in your car. Once you've found a good spot, clean that area, then peel off the piece covering the sticky tape and stick the disc on to the spot. Once that's done (won't take more than a few seconds), you should now be able to use the suction-cup on the disc (instead of on the windshield).
Either way, that tape is permanent. When they say permanent, they mean permanent. I lived where the outdoor temp was 100+ degrees everyday, and that thing would not come off. Point is, just make sure you mount it where you want it. Just a heads up. :) Good luck!
