Anyone else having this problem? All the 4 I bought on the group buy are falling off, after about 5 months of use, my 2 refuse now to stay on the windscreen. Tried cleaning etc. Any tips anyone? Can the suckers be replaced?

I always buy hard mounting kits for dash cams. These tend to be sticky pad based with a hard wired PSU. Never had a problem and cost about a tenner.

Heat often not good for adhesive.

Are they universal fitting?

PSU's tend to be a micro USB output which, whilst maybe not universal, is fairly common. The hard mount will need to be specifically for the camera or the camera must be part of a range for the base.
