How to un-warp suction cups

[source]
A while ago, someone gave me their GPS device because they bought a new one. The suction cup had been stored very badly in the box for many months such that it was totally warped and wouldn't stick to any surface. There's one really easy way of "resetting" a warped suction cup. Dunk it in boiling water for a few minutes. The rubber becomes pliable and the cup regains its original shape. Problem solved.
