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.

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

I just got on myself. It is deceiving but it can adjust. You have to be very firm with it. I strongly recommend NOT having the GPS unit attached or having the mount on the window when adjusting as you have to bend it hard to move it. Just bend it whatever direction you want it to move and it will move. It is just VERY stiff. My guess is because that helps it maintain whatever position to bend it into. Good luck.

does it charge via an AC charger? As most GPS units do better on an initial AC charge prior to being hooked up to DC.
Your charge circuit is possibly faulty, or the internal battery has collapsed and needs changing

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
