    I have had the same problem. My unit won't charge and after wiggling the charger into the socket all my info is wiped out.

    Your comment that you "hard wired" it. What did you do? I thought I would hook up a more sensible connector to the pcb but not sure which is the + & - from the battery as there are 4 wires. Would that be the way to go & could i assume that they are the black & white wires not the red & green?

I had the same problem about the stupid socket. Now it only charges at a very specific angle in my car. Of course, I found it dead in many morning when I get into my car. Could you also please let me know which ones are + and - so I can wire it with a better socket? Thanks. My email: sodium<at>gmail.com

DOnt know where you can get it fixed but I "hard wired" it so it has now become a GPS only.

What a stupid plug they came up with (so much for supporting Kiwi made)
The amount of stress that is placed on the plug while its pllugged in and your driving,something has to give sooner or later.

Pin navman handhelp pc will not work off battery


Try holding soft reset for a couple of minutes whilst charging. If this does not work leave pda charging with hard reset switched off BUT all data will be lost. Then move hard rest and if you are lucky the green charging light will start flashing and you can switch on. It sounds as though you have flat battery and if left too long restarting becomes very difficult as the motherboard cannot start the recharging process while the pda is switched on. This is true even with new batteries which can be supplied flat if old stock.
Even liquid damage is unlikely as there are so few exposed connectors. I have not tried it but gently drying motherboard with a hair drier on gentle setting and cleaning battery connector and screen ribbon cable before assmbling might work. Treat both connectors as being etremely fragile although they are more robust than you might think. But treat them with extreme care as repairs to them would be more expensive than the value of a working pda.

Pin 570 not charging


the connect where it plugs in is very flimsy you may need a new one. try adjusting the angle etc at which you place the unit on charge its very fiddly to get it right and a small nudge loses it

Charging socket on navman pin 570 has come out


These sockets are on sale if you google enough. Ebay seller totalviews for example. Check its the right socket and be prepared for very small presise soldering. when you open the case, take great care not to break/dismantle the rocker switch that protrudes as it has minute elements in it. If charging is a problem but the socket appears sound,m check the plug that goes into it and ensure the springs go in and out to hold it in place.F4therchristmas

NAVMAN 570 PIN


maybe there is a flat or stuffed lithium battery or battery charging circuit in the pin 570.
fix:
leave unit to charge for 24 h
if the battery still dosnt charge because it is over discharged, then you may be able to push some charge in it after the battery is unplugged, after opening the case, and removing the circuit board
