Help... on the suction holder

#1 Post by prodrive7354 » Sun Apr 10, 2011 8:45 pm

I noticed my 1450 suction cup mount keep dropping off from the dashboard disk whenever after I parked my car under the hot sun. :-?

Anyone encounter this before? Any suggestion? Help!

Thanks!

This is normal for something that came free with your GPSr :mrgreen:
Give the rubber suction a good wash with soap and you may prolong
the sucking power a little bit.

Try searching in this forum for dashboard mount.

The best part is I didn't attach my 1450 onto it. :(

What you experience is happening with most suction holders. Either you live with it or buy a beanbag holder which is placed on dashboard of car.

Clean and apply some Armor All original HERE. They last about 2-3 months after each application, they also protects against UV light from the sum. Hope this helps... Cheers!
