Hello Hoshiko,

You don't say what kind of mount you are using. There are a couple different kind. One kind uses an adhesive (like double sided sticky tape) to secure the mount to the dashboard. For this kind of mount you can simply purchase some new adhesive tape to apply. This is available from most hardware or electronics stores.

The second type of mount uses a suction cup type device to secure the GPS to the dashboard. For this type you will want to make sure you are attaching the mount to a smooth, nonporous surface. Make sure that the area you are attempting to afix the suction cup to is clean and dry. Make sure that the suction cup itself is clean and moisten it with just a little bit of water before attempting to get the mount to stick.

If you still can't get the mount to stick to the dashboard you might need to look at other mounting options or purchase a replacement mount.

Best Regards,
Ken

My garmin nuvi 350 suction mount falls from the windshield after several days.


I believe they all do that, I own a Garmin and I bought what looks like a bean bag because I got tired of my suction cup mount falling off my windshield. The nice thing about the bean bag mount is that you can move it closer to you and place it anywhere on your dash. I bought mine on ebay from the Mount Guys they have a big selection of mounts for all types of GPS's take a look you might want to make the change too.

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

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.

If this answered your question please check +. If not please elaborate on your queston

We just purchased an XL 340-S amd cannot get it to stick to the dash in my Expedition. Any suggestions?


Step 1: Make sure the dash is clean and dry. Step 2: Take the dash mounting DISC that came with the unit and remove the cover sheet (yellowish in color). This should expose the adhesive. Step 3: Place the adhesive side of the disc on the area of the dash where you want your unit mounted. Be aware that the disc will not remove easily after being placed. Step 4: Press and hold the disc in place and put pressure on it to squeeze out any air pockets. Step 5: Once the disc is in place, ensure that the smooth surface of the disc is clean and dry, and free of grease. Step 6: Press the suction cup on the back of the TomTom windshield mount onto the smooth part of the disc, and rotate the locking ring clockwise until it won't turn any further. The locking ring is used to form an air-tight seal between the suction cup and the surface it is mounted to.
To remove the suction cup from the dashboard disc, simply rotate the locking ring counter clockwise and remove the unit from the disc. The disc remains permanently attached to the dash.

Everytime i put it on my dash it on the dash it comes loose and falls off my dash . no matter how carfully we mount it


Try using a friction mount. Its basically a bean bag mount with rubber grips on the bottom to prevent it from sliding on the dash. Much easier to remove than a window mount. Try looking on eBay for "friction mount" and also typing in the model of your GPS.
