Garmin overheating?

Recommended Posts

I have a Garmin Echomap 65 chartplotter.. Nice unit, works as well as others I have had. However, it gets really hot.

The screen is approaching 'too hot to touch' country. and if my computer was working at that temperature, I'd be concerned.

Garmin have been contacted and insist there is nothing wrong. Has anyone else noticed this with Garmin chartplotters, or any other

chartplotters for that matter?

This time of year especially with direct sun on the screen yes b hot. My last Raymarine Axiom Pro screen actually went into hibernation if it got too hot with direct sun on it for a couple of hours.
