Royal Mail have refused to honour their insurance because, in their eyes, it wasn't packaged properly. My question is whether this damage would be repairable and if so, how much would it be likely to cost.

I've got Eddie_NL on here to try to get me a replacement as I've broken the fine pin inside one of the connectors.
It means opening up the Columbus (I have links to picture tutorial for this), removing the soldered on connectors (which includes the GPS one as well) and soldering the new one in place.
IIRC Ed quoted me £25 delivered for the part (if he could get it).
I'll dig out the link to the tutorial (which was for reading the HDD with a SSD, but it shows you how to get the main board out).

Thanks for the info Karl. Whilst this is encouraging, I have no experience with soldering and taking the head unit apart would scare me to death!

I'm getting my dad to do it (that makes me sound about 12!) as he knows what he's doing.
