Re: Wonky Nav VI on '16 RT
I have had the exact same issue a few times. The NAV VI starts rapidly switching from page to page, zooming in and out etc. Touching the screen has no effect. I have a 20S paired to the GPS. The 3rd time it happened, I thought it might be receiving some random inputs from somewhere, so I powered off the Sena, and the GPS stopped its craziness. The next time the GPS went nuts I did the same thing and it again went back to normal. Both times the 20S battery was low. Could have just been a serious coincidence. Not sure, but it hasn't happened in a couple months.
Yep ... that is the known issue called "ghosting". If it has happened more than once you should call Garmin and at a very minimum get the issue logged with them. But pretty sure you are on the road to needing a replacement. What you describe is exactly what happened to me. The first time I called Garmin and they logged the issue. The 2nd time they just said "let's replace it". You have a 5 year warranty on the unit so as long as it's not older than 5 years you are covered.
All it takes is an open road and an open mind!
