Will the suction cup loosen up and fall when attached to the windshield?

I would not trust the suction cup at all. Get Dennis's gps mount or another RAM mount but if you like your gps I wouldn't use the suction cup IMO.

Use a RAM Mount (or similar) Even then find a means of tethering it to the scoot (belt and braces engineering).
I have a TomTom Rider on a brake reservoir mount - steady as a rock and positioned just off my llne-of-sight so a quick glance is all I need.

Cheers,

Interesting that my pal's TomTom Rider has an anchor for a safety tether but Mr Garmin has more confidence in his mount and doesn't provide one !

As I understand it, the AF-214 is the two piece Givi screen with the upper part being adjustable. If I'm wrong, I hope the owners of this screen will correct me. Hope this helps.

depends on the GPS! older heavy models like the street pilots and Zumo 550
I wouldn't...but I just did it with a new lighter nuvi and it stuck just fine! 1K mile round trip...

In situations like this the immortal words of Robert DiNiro come to mind.

"If there Is any doubt, there is no doubt"

I wouldn't use a suction cup for anything more iportant than one of those stick on mohawks for your helmet Smile
