I have a Garmin with what I thought is a standard power fitting
I have recently bought a 2007 CMmax and find the lighter is smaller - anyone find the same and any advice please

Welcome to the forum. (I am a Stroud native)
I have both a Garmin Nuvi 1690 and a 2007 Cmax and everything fits perfectly.
how many power sockets have you got in the car. Mine has 3 2 in the centre console and one in the boot - all identical.
My garmin fits in my BMW z3 also and that has a cigarette lighter fitted.

Cigarette lighter sockets are all a standard size. I'd guess that if the adaptor fits other car lighter sockets, then the socket in your car is damaged, or maybe clogged up with something? A replacement socket is maybe 4 ish of somewhere like eBay or a few quid more from ford. It's an easy swap, pull out old, swap wiring plug, push in new.

Thanks for your reply - it encouraged me to go and have another 'proper' look and it does fit the clips on the Garmin fitting were simply stiff - bit of a dumbo I amThank you
