You put it where u like, the instructions say slightly to the right of center, check your local laws on this in some states it is illegal to mount the GPS on the glass.

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.

Today I purchased a Garmin Nuvi 1300 GPS system. In unpacking the unit I was able to identify the use of all parts except a small disc that was white on one side & black on the other. The black side...


the disc your talking about, is used to help secure the suction mount when the mount wont secure on its own, like to the dashboard of your car and in some instances even the windshield....

i put mine one the windshield but i do not need the disc for my truck, but not all cars or truck work without it.

the disc will help insure the unit wont fall from where its mounted but like i said, i dont use the disc unless needed.

btw, thats a nice unit you bought.

We installed the car cradle to the windshield but receiver won't adhere to the disk. Please tell us what we did wrong. Thanks, Pat skillman


i think you mean the mount wont adhere to the disk..normally the disk is not used to mount the gps to the windshield, is more for the dash area or another spot where the suction cup wont adhere. the are rare occasions where the disk is needed for the windshield though, but its rare. try ataching it to the windshield without the disk. lift lever at suction cup, press the mount firmly against the windshield, then press the locking lever down to secure the mount. the picture below is the wount in the unlocked position.

This adhesive disk provides an alternative to mounting your Magellan GPS to the windshield of your vehicle. The disk adheres firmly to your dashboard or virtually any surface. Then attach the suction cup of your windshield mount to the disk.

Take the 1412 Gps and place it beneath the drivers rear tire, get your camera and then have your friend film the seen while you back over the Gps, then put it on Youtube. Then go buy a TomTom.

HOW TO MOUNT GARMIN DASBOARD DISC


California nor Minnesota allow windshield mounted objects.
Garmin an a few others sell a device that has an antiskid pad, has shot (lead) for weight so it stays put on the dashboard. It is shaped like a donut, about 8 or 9 inches in diameter. In the center it has a smooth surface so that you can install the suction mount that otherwise would go on the windshield. You can buy them at Wally World or Fry's. Even some of the Worst Buy stores carry them. They are $39.00 however in the first 2 places you can find at around $24.00 to $29.00.

Case cracking Magellan 315


The only method I have found is with a dremmel tool and cut it open along the original split line.

All the electronics are clear of the case mid line. The case is a bit less than 3mm thick.

The antenna is closest with maybe a 2 mm clearance all round and the various (6) rear conector wires (on the right looking from the back) have a similar clearance but sit below and away when the unit is assembled. Cheers
