    Hi Lads

      Anyone seen this before the 2nd 2 pins from top have collapsed in to the Sat nav prep, I was using the chinese phone holder with USB power but there is no longer power on the USB ports, i tried some wd40 to see if they would spring back out but no luck

    Thanks
    Damien

    You prob tried this already, but any chance you can get tiny pliers or tweezers on there and pull them out?  I haven't disassembled a nav prep before, but you might be able to open it up and get them loose once you get it disassembled.
    You can't teach pigs to sing - it only frustrates you and annoys the pig.

    the holder can easily be disassembled. the pins got small springs under them. do not try to wiggle them out, or they will come out completely for good. it is a very temperamental thing. I use a Chinese holder, no issues.
