    Too bad you guys will probably sell this guy before the warranty runs out. I'd LOVE to know the "repair" cost on that (probably replace the entire unit). Yet another reason why I'd prefer car navigation systems to be "dumber" and instead just be an external display from my phone.

    Despite cycling the key you may not have given the electronics enough time to reset or discharge any leftover energy for a true reset. I wouldn't call this a problem yet. See if it reproduces itself. People should expect electronics to go wonky periodically. It's the nature of the beast, especially when software is involved. :)

    Yeah, but this is a car, where having glitchy electronics is a PITA at best, a dangerous distraction at worst (and if it controls the HVAC and it's a hot day, it can get much worse). It's not like the infotainment is a smartphone asked to deal with whatever million functions you can dream up- it has the basic job of navigation, radio and vehicle controls- this kind of BS shouldn't happen, period.
