    Hi all,

    Several of us up in the Great Lakes region were discussing cabin overheat stuff and someone suggested that it’s main purpose is to keep the computer from overheating during the summer.
    So, my question is:

    Has anyone who DOESN’T use cabin overheat and has subjected their computer/interior to extreme high temps had any issues? Wondering if keeping your computer at 150-170 all day, all summer is causing problems in the long run?

    Thanks in advance for any info.

    Cabin Overheat Protection is a relatively new feature and I never had any overheating problems before it was introduced. Also note that Cabin Overheat Protection isn't available if you have the new security system (It's forced off when security is on). The Blackvue dash cam on the other hand, is quick to overheat without Cabin Overheat Protection.

    Good info. Thanks. When you say ‘new security system’, I assume you’re talking about Sentry mode? Is there something else I don’t have yet? (Pending an update)

    No, I mean the "Enhanced Anti Theft" system like Model X Enhanced Anti-Theft

    Move from the Great Lakes Region to the South and then look at the feature.

    Just being able to keep the items in the car a little cooler is a big feature.
