The disc is for attaching your unit to the dash. On the glass, you just need to stick the mount to it. Make sure the glass is perfectly clean or the mount and GO720 will eventually fall off. Also the oem mount is just a general pain at best. I went with an aftermarket mount to eliminate the problem.

I got the standard mount with TomTom GO 730 and it just does not seem to work. The first time I had placed it on my windshield which I was later told was the wrong place to put it (the included maual in...


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.

I just recieved a reconditioned XL330-S and wonder if the soft rubber disc on the back of the mounting bracket is supposed to be mounted on the windshield? If so how, it doesn't have any adhesive on it.


its not suppose to have any adhesive on it. not sure with one (mount ) tomtom gave you with your unit (they have a few differant ones) but if its the one that looks like the one pictured below, you just press it on the windshield(make sure its good and clean)

that is absolutely the worst mount them make, normally they wont stay on long and your gps will fall off and hit the floor and most likely damage it.

you should of gotten a black plastic disk to use to put under the mount for good adhesion .

We just purchased an XL 340-S amd cannot get it to stick to the dash in my Expedition. Any suggestions?


Step 1: Make sure the dash is clean and dry. Step 2: Take the dash mounting DISC that came with the unit and remove the cover sheet (yellowish in color). This should expose the adhesive. Step 3: Place the adhesive side of the disc on the area of the dash where you want your unit mounted. Be aware that the disc will not remove easily after being placed. Step 4: Press and hold the disc in place and put pressure on it to squeeze out any air pockets. Step 5: Once the disc is in place, ensure that the smooth surface of the disc is clean and dry, and free of grease. Step 6: Press the suction cup on the back of the TomTom windshield mount onto the smooth part of the disc, and rotate the locking ring clockwise until it won't turn any further. The locking ring is used to form an air-tight seal between the suction cup and the surface it is mounted to.
To remove the suction cup from the dashboard disc, simply rotate the locking ring counter clockwise and remove the unit from the disc. The disc remains permanently attached to the dash.

FOAM BACKED DISC


The disc in the package with TomTom is for mounting the unit on any flat surface on the dashboard instead of the windscreen glass. Stick the disc anywhere you choose on the dash and then use the normal suction (windscreen) mount on it.
There must be someone in the world that has found a use for this, but I don't know anyone that has.
Remember that any GPS system works better if it has clear "view" of the sats ! Why anyone would ever need to put the unit deeper inside the vehicle ( and therefore reduce the signal and also have it out of their line of sight ) is a mystery to me.
The disc seems to be a useless bit of extra kit.

How to mount tomtom 125 to the car


Alcohol works to a great degree to clean some surfaces. I have used lighter fluid to dissolve glue or adhesive residue that may exist. The alcohol will not work on a poorly cleaned surface. And lighter fluid does not seem to harm plastics. Use sparingly and clean in two or three apps.
Your solution seems to be that you are trying to attach the GPS suction cup to the dash without the plastic disc that comes with the unit. Glue the disc onto as flat a part of the dash as possible, Prefferably on the top of the dash. Then attach the Tom Tom with the cup onto the disc. A slight downward pressure while turning the locking handle is all that is necessary. I had a momentary adjustment time to learn how to lock mine. Love the TomTom GPS compared to the Navigon I returned to get an
XL330 S.

Broke screen while trying to fix to windscreen


Are you talking about the easyport mount on the XL 330S model? If so it applies fairly easily in a secure snap. When I tested out the new mount, it was fairly easy to snap on without any added pressure. TomTom has great customer service and I'm sure they'll help out to the best of their ability and if it was in fact defective, you're bound to get a replacement. TomTom doesn't want any unhappy consumers. It's a shame it broke, because it is actually a great device.

Rear view mirror


Most vehicles have a small piece of plastic that is glue onto the windshield and then the mirror slides onto that piece. If that is not the case then get ahold of some adhesive remover and try that. It is deffinately not on there with screws.

Attaching the device


YES , try EBAY , search for tomtom vent mount. You can also buy special rubber disks that have a sticky back. The disk can be attached to the dashboard or some other plastic area. These allow the normal tomtom windscreen mount to fix to the disk.

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.
