    My Radio/Nav Screen Froze - is this a common problem?

    was driving last night - everything fine, turned the car off and then started it up again - and the LandRover screen was stuck frozen - the radio and CD functions worked - but the screen was frozen - after a while the LandRover screen went away and the normal radio screen appeared -- however, it too became frozen - it stayed on the same radio station and time, and computer function display even though i was changing stations -- after a while longer, the screen went blank/off - it wouldnt turn on (although the radio/CD continued to work) -- after leaving my car for a few hours, everything was back to normal

    so my questions are: a) is this a normal/common problem, and b) is it something that needs to get to the dealer asap?

    start with checking the battery. If the truck is an 03-04 the voltage on the battery is crucial. A low voltage battery can still start the car, but can cause strange issues with the nav system

    Probably not a voltage issue but just one of those little quirks we come to know and love (ha). My 05 has done this a couple of times as well as the volume has increased by itself on occasion. The dealer always says not reproduceable and you laugh about it and move on.

    lol - that's what i figured. I'm not sure mine has speed sensitive volume, but my M3 does -- one day i was sitting at a red light, getting ready to make a red turn, and the volume went full blast - i nearly **** myself

    my windshield washer tank has a leak - so it's going back in this week - i will tell my S/A to take a look at the radio, but i am sure they wont be able to replicate the problem

    So I have had that problem on two separate occasions. The first time it was resolved by some wire connections being adjusted by the dealer. The second time it was resolved by replacing the NAV cd as it was scratched. My screen had actually been freezing for months and I just assumed that the unit needed to be replaced. When I took it to the dealer though, they replaced the cd and it started working properly. What a relief as I was expecting to replaced the NAV controller.
