Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

Moving a Tomtom GPs

I needed to move my GPS from one place on my windscreen to another. As it has a suction cup attaching device, it now does not stick to the windscreen now it has been removed.
How can I reattach it? At the moment it keeps falling off.

I need to order the plastic suction cup.


If you can't find the proper one from the TomTom website ... (particularly, if the GPS device is an older version), try checking / looking for it on eBay or Amazon. Just make sure the attachment is compatible for your TomTom model.

How exactly do i fix the suction back onto the windscreen please? I have just bought a tomtom and don't understand the drawings!


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,

I have a Tomtom One 130s & the suction cup does not work, any suggestions?


If the mechanical lever is still working to make the cup ****, I would sujest you first clean the cup and the windscreen and then what I do with mine is lick the cup before sticking it on the screen. Works every time for me in the works van and my car.

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.

LG GPS not suctioning to windhield


You must clean the window area using windex, or other cleaner, and wipe until dry. A clean winshield area provides the best suction, from the mounting bracket.

Slide the mounting bracket switch to Off & On a few times, make sure the suction cup is able to move(slightly) and that the small tap is facing the area with the notch in the metal.
After putting the switch to the middle, moisten the suction cup slightly
(saliva works bestter than water for some reason)
press it to the window with a slight amount of pressure
then move the switch, (Which should be set to Center!)
to lock it on firmly.

If this doesn't work, then there is a good chance the suction cup has become hardened by the sun. If that is the situation, you'll have to contact LG
(or a place that sells "knock off" brackets to get a replacement.)

I never leave my LG GPS in the car, when not in use. Even the bracket comes out, as I've seen what the sun can do to damage those plastic suction cups, fortunately, I learned it on a $5 replacement set for a Radar detector/Emergency Vehicle Alert device, and not a more expensive bracket.

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.
