Hi not sure if correct place in forum but its too hold my iphone 6 so hope this will do

I bought 3 x logitech Drive car mount's last week as pb had a special and 1 for each vehicle seemed a good idea

But i cannot get them to stick to anything including the supplied disk, they just fall off on there own or as soon as i touch them
have tried wetting the disk before sticking and also heating the plastic to make it more flexable.
Anyone had any success or problems.
In the packaging it talks about how to remove if it wont undo, i wish


Cheers Sleepy

You need to press hard against the surface, then with slight force turn the large yellow dial to make it stick to the surface. You will hear a moderate click sound when it has finished sticking to the surface.

Thanks for the reply i have been doing as suggested have stuck them on about 30 times in all and they just keep falling off makes no sense as most suction things stick on easily

Yea if all three are doing the same thing then your technique of pushing hard while turning the yellow dial might be incorrect unfortunately.
You might be turning it the wrong way, so turn it the other way while pushing hard on the flat clean surface?

No Geekzone, the word "Surface" is not supposed to be automatically linked to "Microsoft Surface" in my above post.

I have one of thee and i swear by it, it has the best suction cup I have ever come across, surpassing my previous reference of the TomTom mount

With mine, even if you want to remove and afte rturnign the yellow knob you still need to put a fingernail under the rubber to break the suction

Have you tried any of the other ones that you have purchased?
Have you tried sticking it onto another completely different glass surface?

Maybe try getting someone from work to try on a clean window (Important: Give them the official instructions and don't give them any hints otherwise you may affect the outcome!) This is just to rule out that you are doing something incorrectly.
