Default Screen Burn-in Issue

Hey, guys I was just wondering how are peoples OLED screens holding up? I have had my max360 since it came out and the burn-in is pretty bad. I used to have it on auto nox and i recently switched to Highway just to mess with settings and the Auto NoX is so burned in you can barely Make out the H in Highway mode.
I know it doesn't effect the sensitivity of the radar itself but still sucks. Also when the bars go off you can clearly see the "auto" burned into the bars as they fill up. I doubt there's a fix to this as that's the inherent nature of OLED.

Plus to make matters worse the screen has a horizontal line of dead pixels going the length of the screen.

Certainly an issue. I hope others respond so we can have a statistical data base on this.

Doesn't look good at all. I've never seen that on my 360 or 360c. I would send it in ASAP.

All OLED have this flaw to them, static images will burn in overtime unless there is some kind of image retention prevention is built into the screen. Just like the old tube tv's and plasma tv's. How long have you had your 360 for?

That might be so. But as much as people are quick to complain about issues on a forum this is still the first example of such an issue on a 360 I have heard of on this forum. You might call customer service or maybe Larry direct. The first 360 model came out in October ish of 2017.

MAX 360 was released in the Fall of 2015, MAX 360c in 2017.

Original MAX was released in 2013.

Thanks for the info fly I was getting ready to look it up, I was pretty sure i have had my max360 for two years. How about people with some age on their detectors take a closer look when it goes off to see if there is indeed burn in. In the pic I was able to capture it going off and it wasn't easy.
