The LCD screen or the graphics driver circuitry has failed. Either way, the unit is effectively unrepairable as it's long past it's maximum design lifespan of three years and so parts and labour will be prohibitive.
Time to update to a new receiver unfortunately, but at least it will also come with a fresh warranty, longer battery life, easier user interface and up to date mapping. In real terms it will also probably cost less than you paid five years ago.
the main problem is technology moves on every 24 months and the maps get more and more complicated with resolution and size that outstrips the old GPS with 100Mb memories which were fine 5 years ago. The value of any GPS is halved aftyer 12 months and halved again at 24 months and 6 months further on is likely to see it worthless entirely as it has no further support from map makers who govern the industry, not the hardware people as you might think.; Upgrade and bite the bullet there are many cheaper options out there now than Garmin or Magellan.Some GPS are even as low as $99 with up to date maps Check Ebay..
Pioneer SUCKS!! After buying a GPS and being told upfront by Pioneer that a upgrade will be aval. in 90 days for a modest cost, it takes them almost 9 months to come up with it. Then they have the nerve to ask $150 for the upgrade after people have paid $300 to $500 for their GPS. I will never buy a Pioneer product again. I switched to a TOM TOM and it works better, no upgrade problems and over all it cost me less than that POS Pioneer.
