    Hi
    @Qunappo

    Tomtom do not recommend the Air-vent Mount for the 6" Models, the Air-vent Mount is only for use with the 5" models, they are concerned about the weight of the 6" devices on the air-vent slats

    I use the Dashboard Mount discs
    https://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/sat-nav/accessories/mounts-docks/dashboard-mount-disks/

    Mount set for Dashboard use...

    The Mount twisted around the ball joint 180 Degrees... For Windscreen use...

    The ball joint is tight, it has to stand the weight of the 6" Units without getting 'PND' (Persistent Navigation Droop) :o

    The GO PREMIUM X is NOT Compatible with Tomtom Home, Tomtom Home is for the early NAV2 Devices....
    The NAV5 (Wi-Fi) devices like you’re GO PREMIUM X normally update using Wi-Fi...
    Tomtom recommend a minimum Wi-Fi download speed of 30Mbps
    Tomtom NAV5 (Wi-Fi) devices will only connect to a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network
    All the update actions are executed on the device...


    If Wi-Fi is not available or is slow/unstable/unreliable.....
    See Option... (2) Connect over USB
    ___________________________

    Option... (1) Connected Wi-Fi
    Tap the 4Dot(.... Menu) --> Setting --> Updates & New Items
    Extra Maps are Installed/Maintained... Tap the 4Dot(.... Menu) --> Setting --> Maps

    I always update my devices one Update at a time
    The NavCore Application and QuickFixGPS updates are force ticked by Tomtom... Deselect any other updates like Maps, Speed Cams etc... Update the mandatory item/s first, when complete update the remaining items one at a time

    Note... NAV(5 Wifi) devices connected over Wifi do not require MyDrive Connect to be running Even if myDrive is running you have no access the MyDrive Connect menu structures as used by the previous NAV3 & 4 devices

    Option... (2) Connected USB
    If Wi-Fi is not available or is slow/unstable/unreliable.....
    Tomtom recommend a minimum Wi-Fi download speed of 30Mbps
    Updating your new NAV5 (Wi-Fi) device over USB will require "MyDrive Connect"
    Get it here.....
    www.tomtom.com/getstarted
    Run MyDrive Connect.....
    Note... The NAV(5 Wifi) devices have no access the MyDrive Menu structures as used by the previous NAV3 & 4 devices
    MyDrive Connect will only show a "Splash screen" saying "Connect your device using Wifi" etc
    If required you can close the 'Main Mydrive Window' showing the "Connect your device using Wifi" Splash screen... MyDrive Connect only needs to run in the background on the PC TaskBar


    27bxc59f2s23.png
    Connect your Device to a USB Port on your PC
    Updating a NAV5 (Wi-Fi) device using USB is the same as using Wi-Fi, all of the update actions are executed on the device...
    Tap the 4Dot(.... Menu) --> Setting --> Updates & New Items
    Extra Maps are Installed/Maintained... Tap the 4Dot(.... Menu) --> Setting --> Maps

    The GO PREMIUM X is a 6" device Tomtom do not recommend the Air-vent Mount for the 6" Models, the Air-vent Mount is only for use with the 5" models, they are concerned about the weight of the 6" devices on the air-vent slats
    This mount is compatible with the GO PREMIUM X body shape.....
    BUT ITS NOT RECOMENDED... Tomtom do not recommend the Air-vent Mount for the 6" Models
    https://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/sat-nav/accessories/mounts-docks/air-vent-mount-V3/

    Scroll down the page for device Compatibility
    _________________________

    The disks have a sticky adhesive pad which sticks to the Dashboard... In order to give a smooth flat surface to mount your the GO PREMIUM X

    I have both, I prefer the Disc ( The Disc does not rotate it's fixed )
    The Beanbag Mount? is very heavy (Maybe full of lead shot ???)
    There is a sticky dashboard clip (To stop the Beanbag Mount flying around in an accident)
    ________________________

    Just an afterthought.... If you choose to go for the Air-Vent Mount
    If the Vent you were thinking of using rotates the whole Vent to direct the Air flow
    The weight of the 5" or 6" device, will rotate the air-vent & mount, and leave the device hanging upside-down with the pendulum effect
