You know the GPS sandbag dash mounts, for example: ?



I've used one for a while and it's starting to lose its "stickiness" to the dash and would slip easily when I make turns. It used to not do this.

Is there any way to restore the "stickiness to the mount.

Sorry if this isn't the right forum to ask this; mods, please move if you feel necessary. Thanks.

I just used some sticky velcro tape on the dash, the other part on the base of the item (backup camera screen in my case)

You can buy thin, rubbery stuff they sell to put under throw rugs to keep them from sliding. Cut a piece the correct size for your GPS mount.

I switched from using sandbag-type mounts to using mounts that fasten to the air vents in my car. Much better, IMO, especially in colder weather.

If the part of the mount that comes in contact with the dash has a rubbery feel, it's probably just dirty. Wash it gently with warm water and maybe a little bit of dish soap, make sure it's rinsed well and dry, and that should restore the "stickiness."
