Hello,
Two months back I bought a refurbished/used nav six from Amazon. It worked fine for the first two months, now it has started turning Pages by itself, zooming in and out and basically being useless. It does not respond to touch command when it is in this flickering mode. Any thoughts or suggestions? I guess it is time for the good old number six spacer board to come back on.

They don't want any of the accessories either. If it's like the Zumo 595 I bought and had to exchange, they'll send the complete package with the new GPS.

And if you’re lucky it’s the brand new model. Still technically the NAV VI but with a new interface and (so far) much more reliable

I just had mine replaced last week. Still the original model.
All they sent was just the GPS unit.

When someone references the "NEW" model that is a little faster, and less problematic with screen ghosting, it looks like this on the Main Menu screen...not the color icons for this screen.
I wonder why they don't just push out an update to update all the Nav VI units to the new software?

I just received my 2nd replacement nav 6 and this one is also the older 5.8 software version, with 2017 maps.

Like the OP, I just want this to work and be reliable. Confidence level is not high.

I have 2 of the "NEW" version Nav6. They may as well be called Nav7 because of the improvements!
The original Nav6 had a Hardware Version of something before V8 if I recall.
The first iteration of "Refurbished" units that were supposed to be a solution were distinguishable by getting a V8, now it's still a V8, but the software version is not a sequential change, just a huge leap to 10.00
