I have a bit of a problem - the plastic bit which holds the pins on the usb port of my Navman s90i has broken off. The pins, thankfully, are still intact. The unit is out of warranty, so I am wondering what to do now. One option would be to find a male-to-female mini-USB adapter and plug it in permanently, so that when I connect the charger I connect it to the adapter, not the actual port where I can break the pins. Ther problem is that so far I couldn't find a mini-to-mini adapter anywhere at all. It's like they don't exist, and to be honest - I am not surprised, because what would be the use of that?
Another option would be to replace the port, but I have no idea how to do it or who would even be able to do it and charge less than the cost of a new unit.
And lastly, I guess I could find a mini-USB port on a piece of obsolete junk, break the pin holding plastic off and try to fit it on my Navman. Not sure sure if that would not damage the pins, effectively killing the unit.
Can anyone think of any other options?
