How do I connect the garmin nuvu to portable friction mount


Hello.

The Garmin Nuvi GPS unit can be taken on the go or set up inyour vehicle. Most units come with a window suction mount that attachesdirectly to your window while some have a sticky dashboard mount. These twooptions can leave permanent marks on your car, with a dark circle on yourwindow or leftover adhesive on your dashboard. Use a friction mount to avoiddamaging your car. The mount uses bean bags to hold it in place withoutdamaging the dashboard.

Instructions
1 Place the friction mount bean bag on the center ofyour dashboard. 2 Snap the Nuvi unit into the plastic mount and set iton top of the bean bag mount. 3 Position the Nuvi at the angle you prefer for bestvisibility while driving. 4 Hold the mount in position and slide the switch tothe "Lock" position. 5 Connect the cables to the Nuvi and you are done.
Thanks for using fixya.

Does the dashboard disc get stuck to the dashboard and the unit then get stuck to the dashboard disc? There are no instructions for this in the manual. My unit is a Garmin nuvi 255WT.


Yes, the dashboard disk gets stuck to the dashboard. Then the unit gets stuck to the disk.
This is because the suction system used to mount the unit will usually not stick directly to a car's dashboard because of the material or shape, but will always stick to the disk.

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.

Garmin 010-10646-00 Dashboard


Hi,

Garmin 010-10646-00 - The dashboard disk allows the suction cup mount to be mounted onto the dashboard of multiple vehicles.

Read a review as well from one of the customer using the same ....

I use a Garmin GPS unit in my car. The Garmin dashboard disk was the perfect solution to mounting the unit to where I can see it easily while driving. I was pleased to see how easy it was to install and how well it holds the GPS mount in place. I have not yet tried to peel off the disk to see if it did any significant damage to the dashboard covering. I keep cars a long time so that isn't really a problem for me. I do suggest that you find a nice magnetic knicknack to set on the disk when you leave the car parked. Even though you probably take the GPS with you, the knicknack dould possible disguise the fact that you use a GPS and reduce the possibility of someone breaking into the car.

Thanks.

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.
