I got in my car yesterday afternoon to drive home from work and before the safety warning had a chance to display, it popped up with a notice that the screen was too hot, and may not function properly. I have an hour commute, so I thought it would cool as the A/C ran. Ten minutes later, the same message popped up again. Thirty minutes into the drive (car has been running the entire time), the system rebooted. According to the console, outside temp was running 100-103 degrees.
Just got off the phone with the dealer, and all they know to do right now is check the software version. Unless the updates changes the temperature parameters, that won't fix it. Surely Mazda did full solar load testing on this design before deciding to stick it on top of the dash... It's the same location in the Miata, and it stands to suffer more direct sunlight.
