Static Issues in XM and Voice Prompts - Loose Connector

I have an 07 1200RT.
I have the Garmin 2820 audio running through an Autocom with Valentine 1, the BMW Radio and CD run through it as well. Additionally I have cell phone and 2 way radio running into the Autocom as well. The GPS is mounted on the center of the top of the tripple clamp.

I have always had static with the XM at higher rmps/speed as well as the voice turn instructions. It seems that with more vibration the static got noticeable and/or worse. When I touch or put pressure on the cable on the right side of the unit (as I am looking at it) on the back of the unit the static goes away. It is a small unusually shaped computer type connector (sorry not even close to a techy - mea culpa).

The FM/AM and CD are crystal clear at all speeds/rpms.

Is there a way to tighten that connection that anyone is aware of?
