I have the same problem and tried all the stuff you done on my Meridian
and the simple answer i got was just run dedicated 12v power from your bike
tothe GPS using the external connection
and then it will have constant power and the batteries won,t lose contactas you won,t be working off batteries.then when the power is lost it goes back onto batteries then start the bike up and then switches back to power again.

Thats if your bike can handle that.

I think it's time to setup a project bike (Shady's 525) we can mod it and post you the pics and a detailed walk through on how to do it yourself.

Hope thats ok Shady?
