Roomba 595 Interface Port Where?

I have a roomba 595 in the office here, we bought it about 6 months ago from costco. There is an external power port, but I can not find any obvious DIN connector anywhere on the exterior. Does anybody know if the late 500 series have this serial connector? All of the hacking sites imply the port exists on many models?

The 7-pin mini din connector is hidden underneath the decorator ring of your Roomba. To pry up the ring remove the dust bin and then lift up the back portion of the thin plastic ring. Keep lifting it around the User Interface control panel until it pops off. Then you will see the connector.


fantastic, the cover was slightly stiff to pop off, but sure enough, it pries off and there's the DIN. Thanks!
