GPS cable corrosion

Hi all, I am traveling for 6 weeks so my bike is outside, it is always in my garage at home. Well after about 2 weeks I'm seeing some corrosion on the Garmin USB power Cable end that goes in the gps. What should I do to clean it and stop it from getting worse? Thanks,

Matt

WD-40 works, too.
Not the best out there, though, but it works ok.
Be sure not the damage the pin thingies in the usb connector.

Product carried at Canadian Tire called Fluid film. I spray it on the GM truck door hinges every 6 months, the hinges are so free that a light breeze will close the barn door on the back of my leg

Some anti rust spray and make sure the cables position dont hold water/moisture. I have had my Garmin since 09 and dont see any rust/corrosion
