Owners can download a free firmware update using Garmin's WebUpdater program. This update will correct the cause and prevent this lock-up from occurring. However, if your unit has already experienced the screen freezing, it is recommended you return the PND to Garmin for repair. The turnaround time is estimated to be 10-14 days.
While summer may not be the best time to part with your GPS, it is better to get it fixed than experience a problem on a road trip when it could leave you without guidance.
