When I'm travelling some distance I get a yellow band down

Customer Question

When I'm travelling some distance I get a yellow band down one side with 2 images included. One looks like a ship in full sail & the other a pencil. There is also 3 rings. Sometimes is happens 3 or 4 times a minute & other times once every 5 or 6 minites. What is it & how do I stop it.
JA: What's the make/model of your GPS unit? How old is it?
Customer: The latest garmin & is about 4 months old
JA: What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: It is just a normal direction then this comes up. It only happens when I chart a direction & not around town
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I can't see where I can eradicite it. the advice on the internet list is of no use
JA: Anything else you want the GPS expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I've made 2 requests about this problem with no response &on e on facebook also with no response. It is damn annoying.
