Screen goes blank starts to beep

Today while fishing the unit started to beep after 1 hr being on. When I looked at the screen it was blank and then it would show some lines then blank again. It is a navnet GD-1700c. I turned it off and the picture came back, but after a couple of minutes it did it again. I left it off for about an hour. Turned it on, saw the correct screen, then went off again. It would beep when the screen would go blank. It's about 3 months old.Thanks

Screen goes blank

Maybe the setting of your video display was change to higher setting, and your screen cannot handle the said setting.

When a "safe mode" message appears during opeing, select that options, then at the desktop right click your mouse, chose properties, then setting, then change the screen resolution to lower range.

Navigation screen freezes GPS unit

I believe they fixed this problem with a firmware upgrade. Use Garmin's web updater to perform the updates.
