Thanks "gblawler" I am getting close. I have a good mounting system from "Cycle Gadgets". That does the trick, just their power cord would not work after 2 attempts. Power from the Garmin supplied power cord for a car worked with a male BMW plug to a cigarette lighter. I still just need a power cord. I hear there may be one available without the cradle but when I search power cords all I get is the cigarette lighter style which I already have and not confident with the two plugs.
