windscreen mount is awful

  (Rating Hidden)

this is my second tom tom and frankly cannot fault the unit as a sat nav. However, the windscreen mount is truly awful. It is so fiddly and awkward to fix, worst of all, no matter how careful I am with the fixing, it endlessly falls off the windscreen,...

TomTom Via 130

Great when it works. Sadly, my unit doesn't work very often. It will refuse to switch-on for no apparent reason, even though the battery is fully charged. TomTom acknowledge that it has a fault and want €105.00 to repair it, but will not say what the...
