What do you mean colour, I thought they were just red and grey, I'm coming from a 310 F6 which has a full colour screen.

Yep, mates changes all the time, or used too. Took it out and reinstalled facia properly, still does it some times.
Mine has done it twice.
I think they get bad connections(dry joints) on the circut board behind the facia, which at a guess causes a voltage drop too the display. We found that if you press gently on the bottom right corner of the facia you could make it happen or go away.
A proper repair would require a tech to resolder the bad joints.
Oh and stampy, yes they are colour, GPS and video.

Mate how do you find the HSV compared to the F6? I was tossing up between my GTS and an F6 prior to purcashing the GTS, went with the GTS pretty much on looks, the F6 i think has nothing on the GTS in the looks departent.

Also in regards to the stereo console, i've had mine go funny on me a few times when using the front aux to play music from my ipod, sound goes all funny like mono, but once i pressed on the fascia just under the screen, kind of pushed on it, and it fixed itself right away....
