Question about Garmin StreetPilot c340 GPS Receiver
Everything works like a charm. It falls off the window 9/10 times within 10 min. It's placed on correctly as far as all of can tell. suggestions?
Hi I had this problem myself - other than going to the expensive option of getting a new suction cup, inspect the existing one carefully, and if here is no crack or break in the cup the problem could be caused by some slight distortion of the suction cup caused by it resting on other items in the glove box or similar. the distortion does not need to be much to stop an airtight seal. Here's the solution: Get a bowl of boiling water, soak the suction cup part of the cradle in the boiling water for a few seconds until it goes slightly soft, remove it from the water and quickly, dry the part. Next quickly (whilst the plastic is still soft) apply the suction cup to the windscreen in the method indicated by the manufacturer -and that is it! The water softens the plastic so that it can be pulled into place by the vacuum of suction cup mechanism.
Hope this is of help to you or anyone with a similar problem

Call Garmin and they will send you a new one

There is a handle which tighten and release the suction cup. Release the handle, wet the suction cup and position the unit onto the windshield and move the handle to the tighten position. If you are trying to just stick the unit onto the windshield, this will not work.

I suggest that you clean the surface from particles and when its already clean, try damping it with water, but not too much.
hope this helps.
