Issues & Repair Info

Overheating

The Goggles X have been found to be prone to overheating on the RH display labeled as LED 1. This causes a green hew or a shut down of the display its self until its cooled down.

I did a deep dive on this issue in this video

Caddx have subsequently release new firmware that has improved power consumption by as much as 14% and reduced temperatures.

Caddx have also announced a free replacement heatsink for the Goggles X to help reduce temperatures as well.

It is not confirmed at this time if this resolves the issues for all users.
