    The round ball of the mount won't go in to hole.Try it the house
    then went out to the car mounted it on the windshield the part with
    ball.Could not get it to connect in the GPS. MOVE it side ways up down
    no luck and lean on it what is wrong? Thanks Bob

    Not sure if you have a compatible but I have one of the old C530
    Street Pilots and it takes quite a bit of force to make them mate.
    Just be careful not to put pressure on the screen. Also you can
    check with Garmin and ask if the two are compatible. I assume the
    windshield mount came with the GPS so it should be. Hope this
    helps.

    That seems like such an obvious solution that I have to ask, what were
    you doing before?

    He probably just needed the encouragement to force it. With the
    amount of pressure necessary to pop it in it seems natural to worry
    about damaging something.

    Glad it worked for you! Happy Driving, at my age it is insurance to
    make sure I know where I am and where I have to get to. Enjoy!

    They must be making them sturdier than they used to.
