It takes a very firm push to snap it in place. There's a strong spring to hold it in and provide friction to keep the GPS in position. Get a good grip and push the ball into the socket firmly, with a slight twisting action.

Where do you mount your GPS? What part of the window?


There's no specific place to mount it. however, I feel that the best place to mount it would be in line with eyes and the external line of the road. This way you keep your gaze always inside the road minimizing distraction risks.

How do you get started... where do you plug in the gps in my toyota avalon? I have a 5045


Hello, If i understand correctly, you are just trying to set up your Magellan gps into your Toyota Avalon. First of depending on the kit you got for the bracket to hold the unit, it normally will have a suction cup, that secures the bracket, put the bracket on the window, normally to the right of driver view and toward bottom of window, then after putting mounting (suction cup and gps holder) on window, then mount gps in to bracket, now your gps is mounted at this point on window. Now, of course you have to plug it in. GPS kits when you buy them normally have a 110 power plug ( to plug into home outlet) and some will have with the kit, a 12 volt cigarette type of plug to plug in your car (which is 12 volt power) In your home of course you can charge the gps off your 110 power, and gps will run off internal battery for a few hours, but you will find out like with mine, that your better off to plug into car for power, because the internal battery does not last very long. I have a Magellan as well, and they are great units. NOW this being said, if you did not get with your gps a 12 volt car adapter for your gps, you will have to get one. ( unless you have a power converter, which takes 12 volt and converts it to 110 power, but that's another story and only recommended for devices that do not have 12 volt adapter capabilities)

In conclusion if you have the 12 volt adapter to plug in your gps, all you do is find your cigarette lighter, take out your cigarette lighter, put in glove box for storage, and plug your gps in your cigarette lighter, or any other 12 volt cig lighter plugin. That's all there is to it, and now you have power running off your car. Thanks mike , hope this helps

Portable Garmin GPS for car


Most problems for this happening stem from the unit being mounted on the windscreen when the windscreen has heating elements in it, this causes the signal from the satellites from reaching the gps unit. If this is the case, the only option is to fit an external antenna through the sunroof onto the roof.

How do you attach a garmin portable friction mount to a garmin nuvi 780?


Your 780 should have came with a plastic bracket that clips onto the back of the unit and the ball of the mount goes into the back of the bracket. Hope this helps!!!

Garmin nuvi 360 suction cup knob issue


If the end of the cradle has a ball,and the cup has
a round part, just push the ball in, yes it does go in hard but should be ok. If it makes you feel more
comfortable, you can put a drop of water on ball and wipe it around, once it dries, it wont slop around.

No instructions. please help


It's a ball and socket device. You have to force the suction cup ball device into the socket. It'll pop, and you know it's in there. By the way once it's in, it relies on friction to keep it from moving so do not add any lubricant to facilitate the joining of the two pieces.

Garmin Suction Cup (Rubber)


Put a drop of dishwashing detergent and a few drops of water on the rubber and distribute it evenly before You mount it to the windshield. This mixture enhances the suction power and keeps the rubber soft. Repeat after 3-4 months! If You don't like the look of it on the outside of the window, put a smiley sticker on it! :-)

Garmin car charger


There are thee ways to charge the Garmin 750, 1: thru a car cord that plugs into the base that your unit mounts on. 2. Thru an AC charger. 3: thru the USB port on the Garmin unit itself. In your case the car cord plugs into the base that mounts your unit to the window. If that is not working, check that you are getting power from your car receptical. Check by plugging your Phone in or buying an adapter at Radio Shack that checks it. Also check the plug that goes into your car recepticle. Your manual tells how to check the fuse that is located in the end of the plug. If neither of these work your mount connection is bad. Hope this helps
