Ipod Connectivity and Dielectric grease
« on: June 11, 2021, 08:27:10 pm »
Hello All, I have had the same issues with my ipod (an Ipod touch newer generation) staying connected when under acceleration or harder cornering. I've cleaned out the USB port with 90% alcohol and high pressure air. After reading about a different topic somewhere else, I thought about trying a dielectric grease such as super lube or other brands. I believe it might affix the connections a bit even though it is a non-conductor. Has anyone else ever tried this?
Have a great ride!

That sounds crazy! I think I'll start watching this thread because now I'm curious.

Certainly couldn't hurt anything, but might attract debris of all kinds to attach itself.
