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:

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,

I can't figure out how the two pieces of the window mount fit together. Do you have an illustration of how it assembles?


Hello,

The arm of the Garmin G-Ball Suction Mount snaps into the back of the cradle.
You can see a picture of it here.

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.

Suction cup mount keeps falling off windshield . Works for about 1 - 3 days and then just lets go.


The suction cups ****, don't they? ;-)

The problem is that temperature variations (bright sun vs. cloudy day) causes pressure changes inside the vacuum seal, and it eventually fails.

You can try spraying the cup with water before attaching it...the water helps the cup keep a better seal. Vaseline works even better.

Ultimately, I ended up buying a universal mount that fits right onto one the dash ventilation louvers...no problems since.

How do I attach my garmin to my dash mount?


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.

Windshield Mounting Unmounting


first the round plate... that has a sticky circle on the bottom.... you remove the tape and stick it on a surface where you want the gps... then when you want to mount the gps you suction cup it to that disk. now for the suction cup... when it is disengaged the plastic suction cup will be loose. to attach it to the plate or window... you swing the small arm on the base of it up or down... you will see as it will lock the suction... the gps should clip onto the holder so you can leave the holder where it is and remove the gps and slip it into your pocket.

Not the best instructions but you will get the idea

I just bought the magellan maestro, and I can't get the suction cup to stick. The surface is clean and we wet it, but it loosens rapidly.


The GPS unit comes with an adhesive disk that must be installed on the surface where you want to place the GPS unit. The suction cup will only work with this adhesive disk. Once the adhesive disk is installed, the suction cup will hold. Here's the instructions magellan web site...

  1. Clean and dry the dashboard where the adhesive disk is going to be installed using enclosed alcohol pad.
  2. Remove the protective paper cover from the bottom of the adhesive disk; place the bottom of the adhesive disk firmly on the dashboard.
  3. Apply even pressure on the top of the adhesive disk for a secure fit (Allow 24 hours to cure).
  4. Place suction cup mount on top of adhesive disk.
  5. Firmly press suction cup mount down flat against the adhesive disk, press the suction cup lever down to secure the suction cup to the adhesive disk.

I have two NUVI 660's and one 360 (?) navigation systems. They all work great except all three have the same problem with the suction cup. Aftera few months, they will not stay attached to the...


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

Installing Garmin 350


It should be a round hole with three little notches, just stick it in and push (flat surface required!) Then there is a lever on the suction cup to **** it against the windo, just snap close that when you're sticking the hip joint into the socket!
