Hi, If you search the web for ipaqrepair, you can buy the connector for just over a tenner, and solder it on yourself (If you´re brave!) or the circuit board is available for about 55 quid.
It looks like they can repair it for you too, if you ask for a price

When I power my sat nav through my computer using a USB lead the sat nav works properly (ie the screen display is perfect) when I use the sat nav in my car using my cigarette lighter as the power supply...

Hi Ernie, as you've already tried two different chargers, it sounds clear that it's not a charger problem. But, did you try also a different cigarette lighter? The problem may due to your car CL over power (maybe a fuse went...) If it doesn't work please let me know, we'll try smth different. Regards, Peter

3 amp fuse in sat nav power lead keeps blowing

possibly a spike through the ciggarette lighter plug, try putting slightly larger fuse in ( 4 or 5 amp )

temporarily and see if it blows the slightlty larger fuse. if it does it's more likely to be something wrong with the ciggarette lighter socket if it doesn't blow the fuse it's more likely to be the power supply. Ebay for another one perhaps ??

No power

Sometimes the backup battery has to charge first. Leave it plugged in overnight. If that does not work get a new battery.

GPS on a e330

In my opinion there is no reason that it will not work properly. As far as I know lot of PDA`s are sold in Germany with GPS. Only problem can be GPS hardware. If you want to buy some please check which ports they need to work properly.
