My internet is wacky at the moment, so I can't see the pics on your post.
My setup sounds much like yours...Starmate on a RAM. And like yours, I had a problem with the connectors too. They just didn't hold up to the constant plugging and un-plugging. I have two units and I've had to re-soldier the connectors on both of them. The best way I've found to waterproof the unit is with a plastic sandwich baggie. It's easy on and easy off, and works like a charm without being big and bulky. If you're looking for a smaller box, check Aerostich. I seem to remember they had a selection of variable sized boxes.
