Hi - frenchy3112
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

What is the correct way to remove the device from the car if I leave the suction pad in place?


Leave the suction pad with the holder on the windscreen.
Remove only the GPS device from the holder if you have to.

I cant get sat nav to stay powerd on in the car.willpower up on computer but wont stay charged


Any time the unit will not stay powered after an external power source has been removed is an indication that the battery is failing. A Nuvi 205 is a pretty old unit. If the battery has never been changediast2 years, I would recommend having it replaced. info here:

The screen on my Garmin nuvi 205 sat nav keeps going blank, although I can still see and hear that it is working. What is wrong and can I get it fixed?


Try resetting your nuvi by holding the power button for 8 or more seconds see page 42of owners manual.
Have you tried a touch screen calibration? Here is the procedure:
Turn off your Nuvi. Then hold the upper left corner of the screen firmly while turning it back on.Release the power key when the Garmin screen appears.
I have attached a link to the owners manual which explains this procedure on page 41.

I have a garmin nuvi sat nav which is just over a year old when unit is turned on all that shows on screen is the name garmin loading maps flashing on and off


Did you try a reset. Turn off the unit. Hold the bottom right side of the screen and turn the GPS back on. It will make you confirm you want to reset. It will clear out all you favorites etc.. so copy them first if needed. Then I would go to the Garmin site a register and update the unit. See if this works
I will attach Garmins contact info. Thanks for using FixYa.

To increase the accuracy of your Garmin Nuvi 205W, I recommend you use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device. Software improvements for acquiring satellite lock and location accuracy have been made.

Garmin nuvi 760, don't seem to be able to load music onto it


I have a 660, and it works fine from the sd card. Make sure the files are .mp3 and that you toggle the source from the mp3 player screen. Can you see the files in browse mode ?
