Gooey,sticky GPS case

2014 Rand McNally RVND7725 21014
Last few months the outer case has been getting sticky. Now it's like the whole outside is covered by sticky, half dried glue. No help from RMcN customer service as to cleaning it off. I've tried several different materials but no luck. RmcN wants $99 for a new case. Has anyone of you had any success in cleaning this case? Unit still works fine and I'm in no rush to buy a new one.

Have you tried GooGone? We use it at work, and it works well...

It sounds like the case is one of those rubber type cases, and just like the slide seals on these rigs, sunlight turns that material into soft, sticky goo. Iím not thinking anything except a new case will fix your GPS.

Great point!! If the outside of that case is rubberized, it will require a new case. There is no fixing that...

I have found that gun cleaner takes off all kinds of sticky residue from glue, sticker or other gunky stuff.
