My new r7 seems to be a little buggy. Anyone notice the word speed/compass/ altitude disappearing from time to time.
ill be just driving down the road, no alerts or anything and the word will just disappear. No alerts or anything. Speed number still displays but the word disappears. Same for compass, altitude, etc.

I wondered the same thing but was told it was to help protect against screen burn in.

That’s normal.

So why no worries of screen burn in from the mph below it?

Completely normal. Both my R7s do it.

Because your MPH changes I hope.
Not the number, the word “mph”. It stays lit full time. You would think if there were burn in issues with one white word there would be issues with the other one right below it.

Change to speed and compass and it won’t say mph.

Did that. Now speed and compass flash on and off. Just doesn’t seem right. Kind of distracting when its at eye level at night and every few seconds its flashing on and off. Probably just me being ocd.

Like the others above said, its a built in feature to help combat screen burn in. I always wondered as well why the mph never changed like the rest. Probably something that got overlooked.
If you don't need to see the display all the time you can change it to dark mode and it will color up when a signal is detected.
