They've tested it and can't reproduce it, so have asked for a video which I've now made and sent in.

The UK support team have asked me for screenshots, so I may be following the same path!

I passed this on to a contact of mine in Garmin, who contacted their automotive department who said if they get more reports they'll look into it! I've emailed product support but would probably help ...
