    My screen went black or blank. It was a hot day, so that may have been a factor. It recovered adter5 minutes. The car was driveable, but seriously unsafe doing so.

    I have the service center looking at the occurrence. I am very suspicious the unit got too hot in direct sunlight, and recovered once the cabin cooled off. I now shade my display when I park the vehicle outdoors, to satisfy my paranoia!

    Shade is always good. Also, make sure your cabin overheat protection is on.

    Service center found nothing in the data log. They updated my firmware and sent me on my way.
