Suction cup faillure

Postby sverige » Wed Oct 04, 2023 1:45 pm

My suction cup of my GO750 does not work so well anymore
It works fine until untill last week but since then it fall off from the window
I can see when I tighten it agains the window it will not create enough vacuum
Can I fix this or should I buy a new one ?

Apart from trying to REALLY clean the suction cap and screen they are cheap as chips on eBay or even try a a dash mounted plate like eBay item number:173544106344

Thanks and I give it an other try even cleaning did not work so far.
If it does not work I understand there is not so much to do about it and I have to buy a new one

If you could use a pad stuck to the very nearly flat/horizontal dashboard then there would by far less weight/pressure of the unit trying to fall down compared with a vertical angle. I'm sure Isaac Newton could explain better about gravitational pull :023:
