This cradle/power problem was a major problem at launch 4 years back - i had 3 units before I got one that worked OK and that replacement was itself a factiry refurbished unit. Even now, sometimes the power lead is verys ensitive and the unit shuts down.
Magellan Support is absolutely useless (apart from 'John') they just don't respond to queries. I updated to latest maps and firmware 6 (actually shows ver 5.37) on the understanding that I would get Magellan Tools and could then load cameras. BUT it has been such a huge waste of time.
I am at last binning my Roadmate and getting a Tomtom Go 720T with Traffic and cameras preloaded. It auto updates each time you sit the unit in its cradle linked to PC/internet.
Wish I'd never wasted over £800 on Magellan 4 years ago.
