The power cable adaptors that I use for my satnav and phone charger sit very poorly in the power outlet, in comparison to my other cars it seems shallow and the connector is always falling out
Is it just me?

You need a later design one, they are pretty easy to swap, I did a write up on it somewhere. There is a european spec and a US spec. I never even knew before.

I had a similar problem with a 2007 Garmin Zumo plugged into a Fiat 500. It was very loose so I used a strip of card in between the connectors and the plastic body of the plug which kept it snug. The plug fits perfectly in my 996.
