The power cable that came with my LS360w never really felt like it seated properly when connected from day one. A few weeks back the unit started powering off & I started having to play with a bit to get it to make a connection. I bought a small o ring to help stabilize the mini USB side. Right now I'm on battery only & that's only about 18 mins of record time. I can make it to work but not home. I have another small mini USB cable that I use to recharge the battery on my laptop. This cable fits perfect & has no issues other than being 4" long. This is super annoying. Anyone else experiencing this? I was planning on buying a second cable anyway for my second car. Any recommendations on a quality cable?

I managed to find a 10' USB 2.0 to mini USB cable along with a triple port 1.5A USB cigarette lighter. Cost me just under $30 but I'm back in business. I'm renting a WRX for my birthday weekend & we're taking it to Santa Cruz. Definitely need that to work right being I'm picking up the car in San Francisco. If an issue arises after I turn it in I want proof that I drove it responsible.
