Simrad NSS8 Crashes

I updated the display to the most current software this spring and now suffer from crashes (system goes black and has to be restarted). I have re-updated the software and each time did the "reset" that is required. Still to no avail. It seems to crash when I go to the "Tools" page and select "Tides".

I called Tech Support who suggested I send in the unit. There don't seem to be any internal diagnostics in the machine. They thought it might be voltage but engine was running or not running when I have had the event. They also thought it could be temperature.

Has anyone else had similar problems? Any suggestions? I don't want to send it in at least until after sailing season but also hate the fact that it could crash at any time.

Thank you for your help.

Hi Ed,

Re: temperature, how/where is the unit mounted?

I have a Zeus 7T ... I'll poke at Tides when back to the boat. So far I have no issues.

It is mounted in a Navpod. I have been reading a thread on HullTruth and there are some software problems with the 3.0. I found copies if 2.5 and an earlier, said to be more stable, 3.0. I'll give that a try and see if it solves it.
