Problems with the window mount that comes with the Garmin 360
The Garmin 360 I purchased works fine, but I can't figure out how to attach it to the window mount. The window mount came with two pieces, one attaches to the GPS system, and the other attaches to the windshield. I can't figure out how to attach the ball joint on the windshield part to the mount that attaches to the GPS system. Is there some other piece I'm missing?

The Garmin Nuvi 255w comes with a three piece dash mounting kit. A round disk smooth on one side tape on the other to affix to the dash (most dashes ar textured and the suction cup will not hold to textures) a suction cup arm with a ball end, and a bracket with a receiver for the ball. Snap the bracket and arm together, this can take a little effort. mount the disk to your dash in a place that doesn't obstruct your view of the road. then place the arm/bracket on the disk and push the lever down creating suction to hold the mount to the dash.
Another option it the beanbag dash mounts that hold the arm without sticking to your dash.

If the end of the cradle has a ball,and the cup has a round part, just push the ball in, yes it does go in hard but should be ok. If it makes you feel more comfortable, you can put a drop of water on ball and wipe it around, once it dries, it wont slop around.
There are thee ways to charge the Garmin 750, 1: thru a car cord that plugs into the base that your unit mounts on. 2. Thru an AC charger. 3: thru the USB port on the Garmin unit itself. In your case the car cord plugs into the base that mounts your unit to the window. If that is not working, check that you are getting power from your car receptical. Check by plugging your Phone in or buying an adapter at Radio Shack that checks it. Also check the plug that goes into your car recepticle. Your manual tells how to check the fuse that is located in the end of the plug. If neither of these work your mount connection is bad. Hope this helps
Hello rkfowler, While the suction cup mounts included with most GPS units are very effective, they certainly can fail. It sounds like you are doing everything you can to make it work: cleaning both the windshield and the cup itself. You also might try putting a few drops of water onto the suction cup before affixing it. If the suction cup mounts aren't working out for you, Garmin does have a couple of other options including a vehicle mount that uses a super strong adhesive or a friction style mount. These are available from Garmin directly on their website (www.Garmin.com) or through your local consumer electronics store, such as Best Buy. Best Regards, Ken "Go Ahead. Use Us."
Greetings, There is a seperate black clip that should have come with your gps if you purchased it new. Here is a link to Amazon to get a better idea of what I am talking about: https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=8125# If you have the clip then there is a round indent in it that requires a good measure of force to attach to the suction cup mount. Take Care, -WN
