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.

I have the garmin portable friction mount bean bag. I can't figure out what to put on the back of the gps unit itself to hook to the "spike" that I have put into the "vice" holder in...


I'm guessing your Garmin is the Nuvi model. You need an additional mount that mounts on the unit itself. Go on ebay and search Nuvi car mount you will see many of them on sale on there. The mount you need for your unit is kind of U shaped with a hole in it to attach to the post on your friction mount.

I hope this helps you out and if it does please leave me some feedback.

Best way to mount on dash


Go to garmins web site; https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=13431&locale=en_EN#accessoryTab
Click on Accessories. From the list click on Portable Friction Mount.
Weather conditions will not affect this friction mount.
You may find the mirrow-mount setup from Ram mounts a better alternative;

Help me unlock my gps i do not remember my pin # all i can remember is there is 6 # in the pin please help me


Take it back to the 'secure location' as indicated in your service manual. It will automatically unlock when it gets a full satellite signal. You have to enter the PIN number twice when setting up the unit. You should always use a number which is familiar to you so you can remember it. If you can't remember it, and if your secure location doesn't unlock the unit, you will need to send the unit to Garmin to unlock it. You will need your receipt for Garmin to unlock the unit.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 660 and the suction cup fell off the inside of the windshield and broke the screen on the GPS. I believe it is only the touch screen portion because the picture looks and acts fine. ...


If the unit is under warranty, then send it back to the manufacturer. I had one customer that had the same thing happen and the manufacture offered to replace her unit free of charge.

If the unit is out of warranty, the manufacturer will not sell you a replacement screen. You can find them on eBay, but unless you know how to take the Nuvi apart, you face damaging the unit further.

If the touch screen is bad, the Nuvi will not recognize any presses on the screen. Having worked on many of these units, there is really nothing to go bad on a touch screen unless its physically damaged or has become disconnected from being dropped. If it appears that the glass is cracked, then it is the LCD display that is bad. The touch screen is a clear film layer that lays over the LCD display.

I would strongly suggest that you purchase a Garmin friction mount and no longer use the window mount. With a friction mount, your Nuvi will not fall and the friction mount is legal in all 50 states, whereas a window mount may not be.

Attaching the portable friction mount


It should be the same as mounting it to the suction mount that came with the 660. Check the sizes, they should be the same. There are instructions on the supplied cd, but also in the built-in memory, visible when you connect it to your computer, and if that is missing, on Garmin's website. It does take some force, but it shouldn't feel like it's going to break something.
