It doesn't matter. But with TT switched off charging goes faster.

It can be charged switched on or off, I normally charge in the car, but have also charged in doors.

mine is charged in the car if its in use its conected to the external supply dont want it running out of power at the end of a journey

has started to lose its charge over a period of time if I leave it in the car, garage etc. I think it's just out of warranty though.

I note that you can buy a far better spec replacement battery with a longer charge life for about £10 which seems reasonable.

I have two Pocket PC's running Tom Tom and I have to keep them both charged up regularly at home if not in use otherwise they go flat and I have no power when I most need them.

I keep them both plugged in the cigarette lighter in the car when using them (not at the same time though).
