    Never mind, I see that is is a Garmin 182C. This product has been discontinued, and finding replacement parts might be difficult.

    If I understand correctly that the damage occurred to the receptacle on the unit itself (not to the plug on the antennae), I believe the whole unit will have to be repaired or, more likely, replaced by Garmin. The receptacle is not an interchangeable part that is made to be serviced or repaired.

    If it is just a matter of bent pins, try readjusting them so that they fit the plug once again.

    If it is more serious damage, you can open a support case with Garmin to get service for your unit.

    Garmin also provides in-warranty service, but since this unit has been discontinued for longer than Garmin's one year warranty period, I assume that your unit is out of warranty.

Can you change a GPS navigation system from street name to postcode

I am not sure what you mean by " post code" but a gps uses maps that are stored on the unit itself. In order to make a change on how it shows locations, it would mean that the maps would have to be edited. Any change like you are suggesting would involve a lot of work with computer programming. Since it is not a standard method of locating, it would not be marketed.

Missing bluetooth software

The 300 does NOT have bluetooth. See this Garmin link:

The 360 has bluetooth. In order to have bluetooth, you must have the main board inside that has the bluetooth circuitry AND the firmware to support it. The 300 does NOT have the circuitry for bluetooth.
