You need the ciggy lighter plug as this contains a voltage regulator, if you cut this off and power directly from the bike the TomTom will be fried instantly.
Look at getting a spare ciggy lighter socket and wire that into the bike (via a fuse) then plug the TomTom power lead into it - Mike

That part is all good.. What I cant figure out is if there is just a power cable I can use, instea of having to have the shoe inserted into the 510. Most of my other GPS's had the dc connector on the actual unit, not on a shoe that snaps into the unit..

Spent all night google'ing, and dont seem to find ANY cables that plug in...

Help!

I have not come across any cables that will do what you want, you could take the 510 docking unit apart to leave just the connection block that the device sits on, there is a small PCB within the mount so take your time, you will need some Torx screwdrivers to take it to bits. Once you have the units covers off and the PCB out the connnector part is easily removed from the suction mount part (it unscrews from it) - This is the only way I can think of obtaining the block but you will still need to use the power cable and ciggy socket/ plug etc. - Mike
