Nav system issues

The nav/radio system seems to overheat after 30 minutes or so. the CD player will start skipping and the navigation will start misbehaving.
Is there a fan on the unit that has stopped working perhaps? Any input appreciated. Thanks ...2008 GC LTD 5.7 hemi

Re: Nav system issues

That would be my guess... you may be able to remove the unit, and tear it down to the fan and find a replacement online to fit the bill. Or just pick up a used unit on here or EBAY.

Re: Nav system issues

Problems like this have occurred around here in the past. It seems that the unit is largely passively cooled though, not actively. Usually this eventually leads to the screen going blank. If you do a tear-down and find which parts need to be re-adhered with the likes of Arctic Silver, etc, let us know so I can bookmark this later. Once my REC kicks the bucket, I'm upgrading to a real double DIN with Nav.
