    SD card reader / how to clean...

    I have sometimes a failure to load/read the nav SD card. How can I clean it without disassembling the whole console ?
    Used alcohol on the card contacts / it works a week or so...but after this time it comes back...

    @182RG, yes, I used such a cleaner, but the effect lasts only some days/hours...
    My plan is: complete reset of my sync today...but if this not works ? Possible to only take this part (USB and SD) out of the console without complete disassembling ?

    Faulty nav card? Being that the compartment is somewhat sealed off by the cover and then the card stays in there permanently, IMO it isn't dirt causing the problem.
