I’ve recently fitted one of the cradles, I have a USB socket under the seat. I have attached a male USB connector to the cradle cable instead of cutting into my bikes cables, but I’m getting no indication of power to the tom Tom on the cradle. Does the cradle have to be connected to a 12V supply, I’m assuming the 5V 2A USB Connection isn’t suitable for running satnav on cradle. If I connect satnav using the USB cable supplied all is ok.

    Hi Yes the cradle uses a 12v feed and steps it down to the 5v on the pins
