    Welcome to the site...
    Is the device still dead or did it work after charging the device for several hours after you arrived Home ???

    it booted after a couple of attempts, and after being on a wall socket charger.. which dosen't leave me feeling confident about a touring / camping holiday (if they ever open again)

    The NAV4 & NAV5 car devices have (in theory) one hour battery use... and two hour plus recharge time....
    The Rider 4xx & 5xx has (in theory) a six hour battery use... and obviously a much longer recharge time....

    Tap the 4Dot (.... Menu) button... On the Menu Screen top right is a battery status Icon
    Charging... Displays when Connected to a Power supply
    Full Charge... Displays when Connected or Not Connected Power supply
    Half Charge... Displays when NOT Connected Power supply
    Low Battery... Displays when NOT Connected Power supply
    One of the worst things you can do to a Lithium battery is to run it flat so at a certain percentage of discharge (Unspecified)... The device will go into 'Power Saving Mode' the screen will dull, and the device will eventually turn itself off (Not Sleep)

    There is a Battery Status display available on the devices Status Screen
    Press and hold the on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound Continue to hold the on/off button until the Black & White Status screen is shown.....
    If you are worrying about the device charging, you might consider one of these gadgets


    Simply plug the device into the USB socket and plug your lead into the USB Doctor, the device will display the Voltage and Power being used by your various USB devices when the device is fully charged the USB Doctor displays 0.00 Amps
    I have one of each type they're only peanuts to buy, search Amazon/eBay for USB Doctor

    The power must have been good on the mount else it would have gone to sleep, on power off, unit was on charge less than 1/2 hour so if flat it charged really fast, did have a minor comunity update before goingout but can't see that killing the boot sequence
