Very hot sync 3 screen

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks

Just picked up a 2019 Ford Focus St Line X and i'm extremely happy with it so far.

One thing I have noticed though is the touch screen sync 3 infotainment screen gets extremely hot.

I'm not sure how long it took to heat up but after 15 minutes of driving today the screen was hot to the touch, unpleasantly so.

Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this or do I perhaps have an issue?

If you have just picked up your vehicle it may be that you have not had time to play with the various display options.
Obviously if its set to max brightness it will get a little warmer.
Just a thought.

Cheers for the responses.

Because of the crazy thunder storms last night when I set of for work the screen was in dark (night) mode and it didn't heat up at all however coming home with the screen in light (day) mode it again got very hot in a short period of time.

I turned the brightness down but to be honest I didn't see any difference in the screen but then I had auto dim set on so maybe it was controlled the brightness automatically?

Well if others are also seeing this hot screen issue then perhaps it's not an issue at all.

Thanks

I think it's just a characteristic of these types of screen - I'm on my tablet at the moment and the screen's very hot indeed if you let your finger linger - which you normally don't of course.
