Gilsson Bare Wire Power Cable Fix

Just installed a "Gilsson Bare Wire Power Cable" for my Nuvi 550. After about a week of vibrating on the bike, it stopped working. I opened up the little power converter module that is in-line and found the only coil in it had vibrated and in the process, severed one of it's connections.
So This is just a heads up for anyone with one of these or contemplating purchasing one, Open up the case (remove two screws) and use some RTV or some other non-conductive adhesive to anchor the coil to the board. I used Stik'n Seal from Loctite. But anything like that will work.

OEM Center Stand, Givi E460, E41 Cases, SW-Motech QR racks, Russell Day Long, GIVI windshield, BarkBusters, Madstad, Aprilia Mirrors, Touratech GPS holder
