I need instructions on how to mount the nuvi 200w to my windshield


To secure the nuvi 200w to your windshield with the included suction cup mount (pictured below),


steve_con_6.jpeg

center the GPS on the clip, and tip the bottom edge on the bracket. Push the top of the GPS against the top clip until it clicks into place. Hold the bracket and GPS near the windshield where you like it best. Note where the suction cup is on the windshield in relation to the mirror, etc. Remove the GPS from the mount's clip by pushing the top tab back from the top of the GPS.

Clean the windshield (or portion that the suction cup will be stuck against) with a paper towel or newspaper and ammonia solution like Windex, etc. Clean the suction cup with the paper towel and Windex, too.

Lift the lever at the base of the mount - is shown in the picture above - if it isn't already. With the mount oriented as shown in the picture above, press the suction cup against the windshield where desired with one hand. Hold the mount firmly against the glass and use your other hand to press the lever on the base back toward the suction cup and glass. Press until it lays flat against the base / suction cup. Plug the power cord into the GPS and reinstall the GPS in the mount clips as done earlier.

To remove from the windshield, release the GPS from the mount clips, and lift the lever away from the base / suction cup. Locate the tab that is connected to the suction cup edge near the lever. Pull on the tab away from the glass to break the suction seal and remove from the windshield.

If this was helpful, please rate it 4 thumbs up. Thanks & good luck!

I just bought the Garmin 1450 and there is besides the suction cup and holder another little bag with a round devise, but it doesn't explain anything about this devise in the manual. Is that a disc or...


The disc you refer to is smooth on one side and self-adhesive on the other. It's an optionally used mounting point for the suction cup, and is intended as an alternative location for mounting if the owner cannot use/does not wish to use the windscreen (US=windshield).

Before use, wash the surface to which you intend to stick the disc ensure that is totally clean and grease free. After applying it, press hard all over the surface of the disc and ideally leave it for 24 hours before using it.

Note that one disadvantage of using the disc is that it is a permanently visible advertisement to thieves that there may be a satnav left in your vehicle. Widescreen ****** marks also advertise the same presesnce, but are easily cleaned off if you leave a packet of wipes in the car.

I hope my reply has been clear and useful, please take a moment to rate my answer.

I just bought a nuvi 1450. I also purchased a friction mount for the dash. It says to snap the cradle into the arm. It doesn't go easily and I'm afraid that I'll break it. Any suggestions?


The 2 wide bumps(not sure the technical name) of the cradle go on the bottom first then the two close bumps that have a lip go to the top of the 1450. Also the hole where the suction cup mount snaps into the cradle is closer to the bottom of the unit.
I have the same gps and the cradle is slightly different than the picture in the manual. I have attached a link to the manual and you can see the picture and diagram on page 2.
Thanks for using FixYa

I have a Garmin Nuvi 310 and the windsreen mount keeps falling off the galss irrespective of how much I clean the window and the suction cup. I have heard this is a common problem... I sent an email off...


Have you tried wetting the suction bottom before applying it? Also, try looking into a Garmin friction mount. It's a heavy bean-bag like mount that is filled with lead pellets and has a rubber bottom that won't slide on your dash. It's easily removable, legal in all 50 US states and you'll prevent damage to your Nuvi as your Nuvi won't fall from the glass and hit the dash.

Suction cup problem


Make sure your windshield and the bottom of the suction cup is clean. Clean it with some warter & detergent and wipe dry. Try wetting the bottom of the suction cup before applying it to the window.

I recommend not using the window mount. I recommend using the dash friction mount. You take the risk of cracking your LCD screen when it falls.

1. The dash friction mount will not fall.
2. It's easily removable/
3. It's legal in all 50 states (window mount is not).

Garmin NUVI 660 power problem.


To charge a nuvi, use one of the following methods:
  1. Connect the nuvi to the suction cup mount and the vehicle power cable.
  2. Connect the USB cable to the nuvi and the computer. The computer will charge the nuvi as long as the computer is on. However, the unit will be in Mass Storage Mode and normal operation is not possible.
  3. Connect the AC power cable and the nuvi to a wall outlet.
Please note: All of the nuvi series will come with a suction cup mount and vehicle power cable to charge the nuvi. However, only some of the nuvi models will come with an AC power cable and/or USB cable. If they did not come with the nuvi, they would be optional cables and would be a separate purchase. Garmin only recommends using an AC power charge that is purchased from Garmin. Third party power cables may not charge the nuvi. These cables may be purchased from Garmin or Garmin's dealers.

Hello rkfowler,

While the suction cup mounts included with most GPS units are very effective, they certainly can fail. It sounds like you are doing everything you can to make it work: cleaning both the windshield and the cup itself. You also might try putting a few drops of water onto the suction cup before affixing it.

If the suction cup mounts aren't working out for you, Garmin does have a couple of other options including a vehicle mount that uses a super strong adhesive or a friction style mount. These are available from Garmin directly on their website (www.Garmin.com) or through your local consumer electronics store, such as Best Buy.

Best Regards,
Ken
