Have you tried recalibrating it using a stylus? Press the 'Navi' button then select the options icon (bottom right on the screen with 3 possible selections including Navigation) then press the icon for screen calibration. Also, the touch screen can be difficult to use if you haven't used a lot of non-Apple touchscreens. The iPod interface is most easily navigated using the on-screen pop-up menu or the steering wheel. It's very difficult to make selections by touching the names.

This is normal. It's part of the Windows/GPS board's functionality. The pauses can be trimmed down by editing the sys.txt file associated with your nav program. This doesn't deal specifically with iGo 8 (standard on Dynavin units) but is a good read to help you understand the features and tweaks available in the iGo software. Alternately, you can enable 4-way use of speakers by the Windows board by going into the radio settings menu and disabling the option called 'Navigation Sound'. This will cause all the speakers to mute rather than muting the front and muffling the rear.

ETA: The muting you're hearing is when the nav program makes a noise. This is triggered by ANY noise from the nav program/GPS board. The easiest way to get around this is to disable all audio output from iGo via the settings. On the other hand, if you want to hear the noise it's making, you can turn the iGo volume up from within iGo itself and then from the GPS board/Windows options. Unless you treasure TTS or random beeping followed by pauses of whatever you're listening to, I would recommend disabling the nav audio.

Probably. Try recalibrating the screen or using a stylus to try out the functions. You could also look into upgrading the navigation program to iGo 8.3 or Primo which have well-documented features.

Is this while in the CD interface or while in Navi mode? It's normal for you to lose functionality while in Navi mode and is a known issue. Have you updated to the latest firmware? Instructions and links can be found here.

Also a normal issue that everybody has. Hopefully a later firmware release will fix this and expand on iPod control/functionality.

I'm not an expert (unlike Jeff, Darkoz, and petrut) so don't take my word as law on this. HTH
