SOURCE: power supply to garmin zumo 450
When I installed the Garmin cradle for my Zumo 450 on my bike I installed the power cable directly to the Main line going into my headlight.I then ran the cable out of the back of the headlight and hid it behind my windshield and then, out through the handle bars up to the cradle, you can barely see it. Works great for me!
Hope this helped,

It will only recognize 999 songs, so if you have more MP3's than that it won't load. It also helps to put the songs in several folders on the card so that they will load up faster.

i have had this problem myself after buying a unit on ebay.
on some units you can still use the webupdater (click here for webupdater)
after i bought mine i google searched and came across this ebay posting warning people
unfortunetly this is a theft deterrent, It helps track stolen gps receivers. The only way around it is to call tech support and they will ask you some questions and you may as in my case they asked me to show them a copy of the paypal reciept and in a about a hour they unlocked it. Its not that big of a deal and lots of people have to do this.
And on this unit as far as it goes there is no way to update it without going through this process. Im sure its not the answer you want to hear. But garmins this new do not have the update from flash feature. as well as are not capable on 96% of units to run custom/hacked firmware. Not that i would ever recommend doing that.
