Mine does this once in a while. Sometimes it has me driving through water or over a mountain that doesn't have roads. Usually take a few minutes to fix itself. Has not done it in months.
Don't think your radio is done. It's just lost.
that sucks! joevacs - is it actually the radio that dies or did a dealer just replace it under warranty cause they wanted to fix it?
The first one did exactly what the OP's is doing. The tracking would freeze occasionally, then it became more frequent, and then froze and wouldn't work at all. They flashed it at the dealership, hoping the update would fix it, but it didn't. The second unit , after 6 months, started telling me I was going a completely different direction than I was going. I wouldn't have noticed but since the digital compass on the dash is connected to the Nav unit it said I was heading south when I knew the road I was on, and was heading north. After a few weeks of that it started telling me I was driving in circles. Then white dots covered the screen and the satelite radio quit working.
So far the 3rd one is fine. It's been in now for 9 months so I hope it will last.

Well, I am willing to replace the GPS antenna first. I already have extra after market antenna for Sirius radio Starmate. Can anyone tell me standard GPS antenna would fit mygig? Better yet, I would like to see a pic of rear view of mygig.

I had the same problem. Luckily mine was still under warranty. Nav would freeze up and A/C would stop working. Dealer had the part on backorder for 3 months finally swapped it out with new unit from dealer. No problems yet.
