Tomtom GPS devices come with a variety of windshield suction mounts. All have in common that the windshield and the suction cup both must be clean; use a mild soap dispersed in some warm water to remove any dirt. Rinse properly. Sometimes it helps to keep the cup a little moist.

Make sure the cup is not warped due to previous exposure to heat, and check for any nicks in the rubber. Small damage may easily make the mount unusable and you'd need to get a replacement.

Models with a lever mechanic: open the lever (cup becomes flat), press the cup against the windshield and while keeping pressure, close the lever. It will lift the middle of the cup away from the windshield, causing a vacuum.

Models with a ring around the cup base: Turn the ring all the way counter-clockwise (cup becomes flat), press cup against windshield and while keeping pressure, turn the ring clockwise 90 degrees. This requires some force, but in my experience these mounts stick more reliable,

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.

The plastic suction cup attaches to your windscreen. You can see more of the device in www.tomtom.com

Your Motorola phone charger will not work and it may even damage your GPS! In the package you have a cigarrette lighter adapter for your car - the home charger (AC-charger) you have to purchase separately.

FOAM BACKED DISC


The disc in the package with TomTom is for mounting the unit on any flat surface on the dashboard instead of the windscreen glass. Stick the disc anywhere you choose on the dash and then use the normal suction (windscreen) mount on it.
There must be someone in the world that has found a use for this, but I don't know anyone that has.
Remember that any GPS system works better if it has clear "view" of the sats ! Why anyone would ever need to put the unit deeper inside the vehicle ( and therefore reduce the signal and also have it out of their line of sight ) is a mystery to me.
The disc seems to be a useless bit of extra kit.

Broke screen while trying to fix to windscreen


Are you talking about the easyport mount on the XL 330S model? If so it applies fairly easily in a secure snap. When I tested out the new mount, it was fairly easy to snap on without any added pressure. TomTom has great customer service and I'm sure they'll help out to the best of their ability and if it was in fact defective, you're bound to get a replacement. TomTom doesn't want any unhappy consumers. It's a shame it broke, because it is actually a great device.

Attaching the device


YES , try EBAY , search for tomtom vent mount. You can also buy special rubber disks that have a sticky back. The disk can be attached to the dashboard or some other plastic area. These allow the normal tomtom windscreen mount to fix to the disk.

Windscreen holder for tomtom


I didn't like the suction mount because it doesn't always hold very well and it was a little distracting. I found a vent mount at mountguys.com for less than $15 delivered that I am very happy with.

Tomtom keeps falling off windscreen


Check the suction cup. Sounds like it might have a small hole or crack. Mine stays on the windscreen for weeks / months.
