Problem with Nuvi suction cup falling off, solved

    I read on several forums about the suction cup that comes with the Nuvi
    dash/windshield mount falling off. I tried my new Nuvi and, yes, it
    fell off. My solution was to put a thin smooth coat of silicon grease
    around the outer 3/8 in or so of the suction cup. I choose the pure
    type that is used on plumbing fixtures because it was less likely to
    contain some impurity that could harm the synthetic rubber. I figured
    that if a little in my drinking water didn't hurt me it wouldn't hurt
    the rubber. I pushed it down tight and flipped the little lever. Oh,
    yes, I cleaned both surfaces with some acetone prior. Alcohol should
    work as well.
