Best way to clean out my dock connector.
I'm having trouble docking my 3g to may new tom tom car kit. I've tried my friends iphone with it and they work just fine. So i can only conclude that its my docking connector as i managed to get it to work one time only and that was to pair it to my 3G.
Any helpful hints or tips would be great. Otherwise.... anyone want to buy it

I use alcohol pad on the connector to get rid of grime and oxidation. to clean the general dust and things that sneak their way in there I use a broken wood q-tip handle (Im a nurse so I have access, you could do the same with a broken tooth pick.) Good luck.

I wouldn't clean any electronics with anything but the approved cleaning tools
Most computer techs know that you either clean with either an electronic contact cleaner ( removed oils, dries 100%) you can buy the pens @ Frys
Or compressed air ( keep the bottle vertically and only use short bursts of air to avoid the air getting too cold and causing condensation)
I don't recommend sticking anything in there. The hairs on the brush could get stuck on the small pins
