The pins on the back of my GPS that receive the connecting plug are starting to corrod. Is there any way I can clean them before I put on some protective lubricant?:confused:

Yes, use a q-tip or a old tooth brush with a tiny bit of WD-40, gently clean around as best you can. Then use a dry q-tip to remove any excess WD, then glop a little dielectric grease on the connector/pins and re-attach the cable.

If they're gold pins, should clean right up! ;)

I assume to warranty by offering this idea..LOL!! I would try some Naval Jelly with a Q-tip. I've done it on light sockets etc on antique cars and it has worked for me. White lithium grease is a good protectant afterwards.
