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. Z

Allow the unit to power itself off by draining the battery. Once that is done, connect the unit to a vehicle power supply or an AC power supply to charge it back up. Try running the Garmin WebUpdater. Download and Install WebUpdater.
Garmin 010-10646-00 - The dashboard disk

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.
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! :-)
