Hello. Couple of weeks ago I noticed there is a problem with charging. Tomtom 6250. The sat nav just turned off while charging via windscreen holder and the satnav was really hot. It's overheating for some reason. I can not charge it via windscreen holder . I bought new windscreen holder with new USB cable but it didn't help. I can only charge it if connected directly to micro usb at the back of the satnav. Thank you for any advice.

    Hi @Muhof

    Welcome to the community!
    Could be a problem related to the internal hardware connections. I would suggest reporting it to our customer service.

    Thanks, Vikram

    I have the same fault with my 6250. Purchased another new genuine windscreen holder, to find out it’s actually the device charging contacts have gone faulty.

    Any repair or fix offered?

    Sorry for delay. It was taking quite long to get answers of them via email so finally I gave up and I did this. See photo. Now I connect cable directly to the back of TomTom. I did this months ago and work fine.
