It takes quite a bit of effort to get the ball into the socket on the cradle in the first instance. On pg 57 of the Owner's Manual it describes and has a picture of Removing The Cradle from the Mount by turning it to one side and states "To replace the cradle, snap the cradle on the ball socket." It seems to be easier if you also turn to cradle to one side to snap the ball in - at least such is the case with mine.

How do I attach my garmin to my dash mount?

The Garmin Nuvi 255w comes with a three piece dash mounting kit. A round disk smooth on one side tape on the other to affix to the dash (most dashes ar textured and the suction cup will not hold to textures) a suction cup arm with a ball end, and a bracket with a receiver for the ball. Snap the bracket and arm together, this can take a little effort. mount the disk to your dash in a place that doesn't obstruct your view of the road. then place the arm/bracket on the disk and push the lever down creating suction to hold the mount to the dash.
Another option it the beanbag dash mounts that hold the arm without sticking to your dash.

They fit tight together. Sometimes you need a little force.

Garmin nuvi 360 suction cup knob issue

If the end of the cradle has a ball,and the cup has
a round part, just push the ball in, yes it does go in hard but should be ok. If it makes you feel more
comfortable, you can put a drop of water on ball and wipe it around, once it dries, it wont slop around.

No instructions. please help

It's a ball and socket device. You have to force the suction cup ball device into the socket. It'll pop, and you know it's in there. By the way once it's in, it relies on friction to keep it from moving so do not add any lubricant to facilitate the joining of the two pieces.

How do you snap ball into mount

It takes a very firm push to snap it in place. There's a strong spring to hold it in and provide friction to keep the GPS in position. Get a good grip and push the ball into the socket firmly, with a slight twisting action.

How does teh suction cup ball fit into the garming 360

There is a seperate black clip that should have come with your gps if you purchased it new. Here is a link to Amazon to get a better idea of what I am talking about:
If you have the clip then there is a round indent in it that requires a good measure of force to attach to the suction cup mount.
Take Care,

Problems with the window mount that comes with the Garmin 360

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.

Garmin Nuvi 350 Traffic Receiver connection

You have to power the unit via the mount by either using the cigar charger in the car or snap off the mount from the ball and socket and power it via the mains adapter.
