    Try to apply a lubricant like wd40 carefully (protect the screen before doing anything, let it work for 10’ and then try to draw it.

    A clean close up photo (or photos) may give us a clue...

    I had the same issue with my 550. I can remove the ball mount, but the actual device will not slide out when pushing back the tab on the connection mount. It was hard to remove from the start, but after about four times it got completely stuck. I'm sending back as defective and hoping to get one that works. It stinks to have to re-position the ball mount every time I want to take the GPS off. Will WD-40 hurt the connection pins if some would happen to get on them? Any help is greatly appreciated!
