    ICE & Blue&Me
    Any other AVIC users experience this? The icons on the touch screen blink to grey out when try to use it. You will be trying to input a value (phone number / address) and the values will intermittently grey out and then back on. Same happens on menus/ home screens. Surely not designed to be...
