View Full Version : Dead Pixel on screen....

27th August 2008, 08:39 AM
just wondering who has got or had dead pixels on the screen?

If I have a Garmin with no dead pixels do I tick "Garmin:N" and ignore the rest?

If you have a unit that has no dead pixels just vote as follows

N : "Brand"

And of course if you have dead pixels than vote once like above and the other according to the ammount of dead pixels.

no dead pixels on my mio c220 (7 mths old), none on my generic 4.3" (5 mths old), none on my HTC touch dual (1mth old).
I had a mio c520 for almost a year without any dead pixels either.

From the responses this does not seem to be an issue with GPS units, probably due to the screen technology getting better and the relativley small size of the GPS screens.

I do wonder what the warranty "fine print" is regarding this issue....?

Anyone know... ?

Never thought about this issue before, but I was tempted to tick "Hey it is snowing" given the fantastic, best in 10 years ski season we have had at Lake Mt.
I ski patrol with a two way radio in a chest harness & the GPS clipped to the front of the chest harness.
After some sessions during heavy snow falls I arrive back at base with my front (including gear) covered in white.
