    Attached to an old Garmin friction mount that sits on the dash.

    Can you leave the car dock attached 24/7? I'm concerned about the suction cup giving out if I leave it up constantly.
    If you use the suction mount right, unlike I first did, and toggle the suction tap or whatever its called, it works great. Mine hasnt fallen yet and I leave it on the window 24/7.. not always with the phone of course...

    Check out this post. I've got a link there to Pro-Fit Intl.
    There are several other options for vehicle-specific in-dash mounting brackets.

    My Garmin window mount falls off constantly.
    My Droid mount has been on since Christmas with no problems.

    Panavise car mount and then Garmin ball in my car. Hid a charger behind the dash and ran an aux-in cable. Now use Pandora as my primary source, and also like having Google Maps.

    I'd be more concerned about someone breaking the passenger window than the suction not working. Thieves see the holder in the window and think, oh the gps is in the glove box. You guys probably all live in better neighborhoods than me so you don't have to worry about that.

    Dash Mount, I'm sure the suction cup is strong, I still don't want to take that risk. It looks better on the dash anyways. (Car Dock by Motorola)

    I've had the Motorola car mount on my windshield since early December without any problems. I have it as far left and as low as I could mount it. I'm a southpaw so it works great for me in that position.

    the suction mount is mechanical. most suction cups fail because they become too soft, too flat or become brittle. as long as the rubber remains flexible, the suction will perform as expected.
    The other problem with poor quality window mounts is air volume or I guess more accurately, vacuum area behind the cup. As the air pressure changes with heat/cold cycles, the cup can fall off if there is not enough volume to assure suction pressure remains high enough to ensure it stays affixed to the window. If you've ever stuck one on the window in a cold morning and come out in the afternoon to find it on the floor, you know what I mean.
