Question about Garmin StreetPilot c550 GPS Receiver
Is there a spot you can install the Garmin that will reduce the heat build up within it? I've noted some audio issues (however not a loud high pitched sound) when my Garmin gets too warm from direct sunlight baking it (along with it's own internal heat build-up) I get a crackly, nasty sounding voice that goes away if I cool the unit down. I've since put mine on a stalk between the front seats out of direct sunlight, heater outlets and away from other audio output devices (heat and RF sources) and have eliminated any audio break down. Before I isolated the unit, allowing it to stay as cool as it could, I also noted that when one of my units gets very warm it would also drop satellite connection. Because of the delay you're experiencing (15 minutes) it sounds like a heat build up issue for you as well.
