The suction cup window mount that comes with your GPS is serviceable enough unless, of course, you have to deal with an exception. Lots of things can go wrong, and today we will look at ways to navigate around those issues.
Itís too cold!
If you happen to live in a place with cold winters, you may notice that your GPS suction cup will not stick to the glass easily. This doesnít just happen to residents of Nome, Alaska. It can easily happen to drivers in Chicago or New York.
Your solution:
While your first instinct may be to warm up the suction cup, it is actually the windshield that needs heating. Set your front defrost setting for 3 or 4 minutes and your cup should stick.
Itís too hot!
If you have tried to remove your Garmin cup on a warm summer day, then you may have noticed it was stretching. This is the beginning of melt. If you encounter a stretchy cup, then simply blast it with cool air until it resolidifies enough to remove. This may take up to 10 minutes.
If your cup has genuinely melted, use a credit card or plastic putty knife to peel it off in one piece. You will probably have to replace the cup.
If you have already yanked it off and now have goo stuck to your windshield, you are going to have to take a dual approach. First use the cold air to solidify the goo. Then try to peel it off with a plastic scraper, or even your nail. If you still have residual goo use a glass cleaner.

Windshield ring
If that unsightly windshield ring bothers you, or you are simply worried it will make you a more likely theft target, There is little that you can do except remove it each time you take the mount off. The solution here is simple glass cleaner wipes.
