    Any one had any probs with the electric cable conection for these. Mine wont fit the lighter socket or the electric 12v socket on my 2010 Ducato. Conection is broken when the vehicle hits a bump in the road, so the unit keeps asking me to recharge the battery. emailed Snooper who say their conector fits all vehicles.

    Hi
    Cant say I have had that prob, my Garmin does a bit of that, but more worrying is from time to time my Snooper shows on the screen that I am 5 miles or so further back than I actually am, I have sent them 2 e.mails no reply so will phone them soon to try and sort out. Pete :Angry::Angry:

    To be honest the cigar lighter type plug on my Garmin doesn't fit that well in the socket on my 2010 Boxer cab, it occasionally disconnects itself on a bumpy road. Is it the plug, or the socket (that is probably common to both boxer and Ducatto)

    I was getting the same problem, especially with the slightly larger 12v accesory socket. Solved it by putting a small rubber band on the plug of a 2 way adaptor, just above the spring clips. that stopped it jumping out on bumpy roads and gave me the extra socket for a 2nd phone charger. It just takes a little more effort pushing in and the rubber gives more friction to hold it tight.

    just wish they had fitted the same as in my car, where a half turn after pushing in locks the plug in place
