    had my screen replaced about a month ago (apparently JUST screen no MCU) for the yellow banding issue and now am experiencing massive reboots 2-3 per 40 minute drive to work or home. Wondering if anyone else experienced this. Scheduled for service next week

    The MCU lock-ups and reboots have been happening quite frequently for most of us. It seemed to have started with the update that introduced the new browser, and is still happening with at least 2018.18. I'm hoping it's been resolved with 2018.20 or 2018.21.

    One suggestion that worked for me after installing 2018.18:

    I had left the web browser on electrek.co And had been enjoying finally able to read articles.

    In my experience, Continuous driving was mostly ok. Few problems w/ nav and maps in general.

    But when I park & walk away for any length of time... the center console would get stuck. Hard stuck... no maps, sound system, anything... it was even to the point I think it confused the logicon & air conditioning would no longer function. It was pretty dire that day, as it was over 85 deg. outside.

    About ready to call the SC about this being completely unacceptable & being unsafe to drive, and after seeing some but not enough lock ups in the forums...

    The fix: select the browser & navigate to a low impact website - namely google or some address you know isn't hard on the browser engine.

    Problem completely went away. No repeats for 2 weeks. Whew... what a relief.

    And for any naysayers... it is/was repeatable...

    I hope in some way it helps. But if not, I tried.

    +1...just had my X in shop for AC repair and mentioned screen freezes.

    lol.....They found that my NHL.com web browser page was taking up 52% of memory which combined with 36K in trips was causing the freezes. Once they moved to the google web page and cleared trip data I had clear sailing without a freeze.

    I totally agree with the band-aid; it's just infuriating. Since I owned the car, I could leave it on TeslaWaze (or other sites) with no issues. Every since 2018.14.2 , I can't leave the browser on anything other than maybe Google, without it taking down my whole MCU. And like you mentioned, that becomes a huge inconvenience in 90 degree weather, or when trying to navigate somewhere in a hurry, etc, etc.

What a CROCK!!! my damn Iphone has better bandwith and memory (and functionality for that matter)
