My log in may be timing out, I found that in the bug thread. If it's a long post I'll just type it in a word processor and cut and paste.

I left the Maxitrip sitting on the dash in the direct sun for about 30 minutes. When I started the truck it didn't come on. I cooled it off in front of the A/C vent for a short time and it powered back up. I don't know what the temperature in the cab was, my wife "borrowed" my thermometer a couple years ago and I haven't replaced it. The outside temperature was 110F+. My Nuvi 370 was sitting right next to it and was working fine.

Never a good idea to leave electronic devices in the sun or where people can see them.

It does do instantaneous MPG and GPH when stopped.

No x-guage functions.

It seems to work as expected. The USB interface seems to be only for downloading firmware updates.
