    Hi, trying to mount my scanguage on the dash and have tried a few different types of velcro. The problem is it stays on there about 2 days then falls off.

    Can anyone suggest something that will hold?

    Well.. might be that you put armorall on there at some point. I don't know why you'd have problems. Use some prep-sol or wax/grease remover then some alcohol and probably be fine with some good quality self adhesive heavy duty velcro or 3m trim tape. I've damaged dashes trying to force that stuff off in similar circumstances.

    Careful with the prep sol.. "try on an inconspicuous area first" on my GM turned out it would dissolve the paint the dash was painted with. Wax and grease remover was fine though.

    Might get one of those universal cell phone mounts as well.. clamp it up there with a suction cup or something.

    Hi Island... I did have armor all on there. But I also did using rubbing alcohol to clean the area before I stuck it on. It's been mighty cold here recently and im wondering if thats the problem. I do have an insulated garage, but it still can get cold in there.

    alcohol will not remove the armor all if I know what's in it correctly.

    The tape will have a temperature threshold. Using craft velcro or auto?

    Use one of those small rubber pads, they grip it well in my truck. Then put the velcrow sticky side on it and it will be a good mount without leave a mark on your dash.
