685 days later and we are still feeling hot over the same issue... :mrgreen: I kept mine in the car for as long as I can remember. As long as it is not in direct Sunlight and away from preying eyes it should be Okay.... Just to let you know that most Electronics are tested at +80 deg C... and some to the extreme of -40degC to 150DegC.... so the little heat from the Malaysian Sun is not a problem... all my units still working fine.

Sifu,

Your 76CSx is not suppose to be in the car.. it is not design/built for in car navigation. It needs to be in the wilderness (fitness of purpose)... :peace:
