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  
Cheers

If you clean the suction cup first with water and a lint free cloth that will usually restore it to a new like condition.

Wet the suction cup a little, press down firmly before flipping the switch to lock it down

Go to BestBuy or similar and get the beanbag like gps holder. Attach the suction cup to that and it stays wherever you put it on the dashboard or even on console between the seats. no telltale suction marks on windshield either.
