e39 navigation screen

2003 e39, navigation screen freezes after about 30min of use and after additional 15min turns green. Radio does not seem to be effected.
Does any-one know what is causing this malfunction?

I've seen it recommended to *gently* wiggle or test the ribbon cable between the screen and the body of the nav unit. This may give you an idea of a loose ribbon cable, or help you rule it out.

2000 Titansilber Met. 144k at time of purchase. Remus axleback, Dinan RSB, E60 Short Shifter, Smoked LED taillights, all done by previous owner. We'll see how long that stays....
