Default Simrad Go7xse Issues

This issue started about a year ago with a 1 year old Simrad Go7xse. My screen will start randomly clicking things and adjusting settings on the right side of the touch screen, changing settings etc etc. the first time it happened I had actually trailered my boat to the keys from Maryland and then flew back to Maryland for a week. I found an inexpensive Go7xse that was still in the box on FB marketplace so I figured I’d pull the trigger. Purchased the unit hoping it wouldn’t have the same issue but of course it did lol.

someone had suggested using some dielectric grease on the connections to see if that helped at all. I did this last week as I was late getting boat back in the water. It seemed to help A LITTLE but it still will randomly click things and it seems to run painfully slowly.

It might be worth adding that I run a navionics platinum card, I’m not sure if that has anything to do with slowing the processor down but I figured I’d relay that info as well.

What are the odds that BOTH units have faulty touchscreens?? Probably not that high.

any insight would be greatly appreciated!
