Simple fix--I think. Go buy a Garmin power cord. I tried a Garmin 1490 cord and you can remove the Magellan from the mount without having to disconnect first.
I'm no electronics person so there might be a good mathematical reason as to why this should not be done, but it does work the unit just fine.
One problem, however, is if you use the Traffic Link you are out of luck. The Garmin Traffic cord does not provide traffic info, as you might imagine.
