Default Creeping Green Plague IQ GPS

While driving through FL with the IQ's GPS screen on a scale greater than 2 miles, I have been having a green plague creep across the screen. It can't be reproduced, but I think it has to do with a high scale and a green area appearing on the top of the screen. This green is a park that doesn't cover the whole screen. The effect is that the green area continues horizontally all the way across the screen. As I continue, the green tracks down the screen where only the route and the arrow remain. Sometimes if I decrease the scale, it goes away at the new scale only to come back if I return. Sometimes the display freezes.
Has anyone had the same experiences?

I haven't heard of this before. Can you give me a specific area that this happens in (road and city/state or zip) so that we can attempt to reproduce the issue?

Thank you for your feedback

Default My route for the green plague

I was en-route from Big Pine Key FL to Sebastian FL. I can't recall the exact locations but I believe it started around Miami. Keep the map greater or equal 4 miles.

This isn't a common issue with the iQ. It sounds like your touchscreen may be intermittently defective or it has a bad connection.

Please contact our service department

Thanks. Sorry to be slow in responding, I thought the forum would e-mail me. I have a few more issues but I have a trip coming up so I'll deferr this until we return.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, Escort... But I have seen this problem as well on the IQ, and It was while I was driving around in Florida. Can't recall exactly where.

The problem starts off as a small patch of green occluding the map, then the green gradually grows and no matter how far I zoom in or out, it stays. It will eventually cover the entire US. I have to restart the IQ to clear it up.

And to be more specific, the green occludes the MAP ONLY. The touch screen buttons, and the rest of the GUI continue to function fine.
