Good Cradle for 450/550

My ZUMO's cradle is a piece of shit. I knew it would break eventually. Even before the tabs that hold it broke it would stop making contact to the power every once in a while from the vibrations.

Is there anything out there better than the one Garmin sells?

Have not heard of any accessory cradle that offers power connections.
Garmin has this wrapped up.

You can get a Touratech cradle that surrounds/reinforces the Garmin cradle,but you still need the Garmin unit.

Zumo cradle has known weaknesses,including the contacts.
Contact issues can be helped by using dilectric grease on the contacts.
Most folks end up getting a new cradle eventually,if you talk nicely to Garmin,they might send you one.

They sent me one at no cost. They even paid for shipping. They didn't ask any questions either, but then again, this was within a few months of the purchase.

Give it a try, nothing to lose!
