I need an adhesive for my GPS that attaches via suction cup to my windshield. It's 4-5 years old and on hot days it falls off. Now it won't stick very long and has become a major inconvenience. I'm looking for an adhesive that isn't permanent but will hold until I remove it.

Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

What about mounting the gps on the dashboard instead?

RTV silicone can be removed with a razor blade. However, your suction cup will never suck again.

wakeboarderdave1, I still have that thing that came with it. The issue is the suction cup doesn't have the hold it used to.

What about just getting a new mount? They don't look that expensive on amazon.

replace the suction cup and get something nice from Ram Mounts.

www.ram-mounts.com

I use Ram stuff on the MC and it works fantastic. They make all kinds of different mounts, and even have nice suction cup stuff.

I have a pro clip mount for my Galaxy s3 in my car. It's kind of expensive, but I really like it.

wakeboarderdave1, love Pro-Clips stuff. I can't justify opening my dash for it (don't spend nearly enough time in my cars) but if I was a commuter, or did something that required a lot of seat time, I'd absolutely use their stuff. Especially to use the smartphone as a kickass GPS(Waze)/streaming radio combo.

I don't know why buying a new mount didn't cross my mind. I can get one for $5. Thank you everyone!
