The USB port in my TomTom One XL is broken Answered

The connector rattles around it the bottom and sometimes moves into the SD slot. It doesn't  seem it be connected to the board. The battery is empty and we can't charge it because the USB port is broken. Can I fix it or do I need to get a new satnav?

If you can't open it, you don't own it.

If it's still under warranty, contact TomTom and send it back for repair.  If it isn't, open it up and see what's wrong.  If it looks like something you can fix (e.g., you can solder the USB connector pins back onto the board, or use jumper wires), then do so.  Otherwise, throw money at the problem.

 I don't think it's under warranty because I think we have had it for 2 years. I might be able to solder it but it's my mum's and I don't have the things to do it. I might get a new one because it's old and that might be easier.

Can't tell until you open it up and look at the board.
