Cigarette lighter style plug for Garmin GPS
The cigarette lighter style plug for my Garmin Nuvi keeps coming unplugged from vibration as I ride down the road. These dumb things are dependent on a friction fit against a spring connection ... traditional but dumb design. I know I could cut the plug off the Garmin and wire it into the 'Wing through an SAE connection but I hesitate cutting off the molded on plug. Is there some nifty way to make a minor adjustment in the plug fitting so that the thing will stay plugged in until I want to unplug it ??? Only thing I can think of is to stuff the Goldwing pocket where the cigarette plug receptacle is full of "stuff".
Any ideas ???
