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.

Remove only the GPS device from the holder if you have to.

The mounting bracket does not adhere to the slightly pebbled vinyl surface of my dashboard. Does the clear plastic cover, with the tab, come off or stay on? Also, there is a round black disk that...


The mounting bracket is meant for mounting on the windscreen. It won't stick to the pebbled vinyl surface of the dashboard as the surface allows air in. You take off the thin clear plastic cover. The black disk that came with the satnav can be stuck to your dashboard if you want to mount the satnav there. Clean the dashboard and peel off the plastic cover off the disk to stick it to the dashboard. Be sure not to put it where there's an airbag. You can then attach the satnav to the other side of the disk the same as to the windscreen.

To attach the satnav to the windscreen press the suction mount against the screen and press the lever towards the screen. To remove it pull back the lever and lift the tab on the suction pad.

How do you attach the grip to the suction cup before you can mount on the windscreen


On the end of the suction cup there's a ball shape. On the grip there's a small plastic cylindrical piece. Push the ball into the cylindrical part. It's a tight fit so you'll have to push hard.

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.

Do i use both the hard plastic adhesive disc or just the one that holds the tomtom to fix onto windscreen.Mike.


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.

External Antenna Conection


Ref ICN330. The external antenna connection is on the top side of the flip up Antenna on the unit itself. There is a small rubber plug covering this, adjacent to the Navman logo.. Ricmac

LG GPS not suctioning to windhield


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.

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.
