08JeepGC is on a distinguished road
08 grand cherokee mygig freezing.

During a long trip the navigation unit on my 2008 gc froze once. The time stopped and the navigation wouldn't plan a trip. Turn the vehicle off then back on and only a blank screen showed up. After a few minutes the system
turned on and the screen flipped down. We did go through a sever thunderstorm and the ambient temp was around 95 degrees.
The freeze only happened once, no problems since.
Does the mygig ever have overheating problems?

Re: 08 grand cherokee mygig freezing.

Well the unit generates quite a bit of heat. Do you have 2.402 of the firmware? Last time mine locked up frequently, i had to install the latest firmware.

Re: 08 grand cherokee mygig freezing.

hate to bump this
having problems with above link as well

anyone tried the recalibration on these mygigs? i read on a 300c forum that its holding menu +seek up and down at same time which will bring you to some of menu and you can recalibrate it from there. A bit nervous about the process, cause "The engineering menu is nothing to make a mistake in. you can totally screw the operating system up if you do the wrong thing. if disconnecting the battery does not fix the navigation problem then check the antenna connection on the back of the mygig. if that doesn't work, you may need a new antenna."

Re: 08 grand cherokee mygig freezing.

I went into engineering mode to reformat my hard drive, fixed a problem where my system froze and would not power down.

Re: 08 grand cherokee mygig freezing.

I had to recalibrate my navigation a few months ago. It had my location off by a quarter mile
