Problem with Rider 400 Charging
I have a connection cable to the live circuit of my bike and that feeds 12V (confirmed), I then have the TomTom handlebar mount with 2 connection pins in it. I get 5V there with both the pins out and with the pins pushed in. So I am sure that is all OK. I can also charge the Satnav from a USB connection (but it seems very slow to full charge).
But - it doesn't charge when mounted on the bike. It used to be fine but then on one ride it started disconnecting as though the ignition had been switched off, then it would reconnect and then repeat until it just stopped charging completely. So I am sure it is something internal in the satnav as I am happy the power is at the mounting OK.
As a temporary messure I have been charging via a power socket on the bike running a cable to the USB port but that isn't realistic when we get to winter.
I am guessing that it is not viable to get it fixed so thought I might take it part myself - any thoughts/advice?
