I've had my Model 3 for over three months and have experienced only one recurring "issue": on four separate occasions my UI display freezes (either both panels or just the Nav portion.) On three occasions I was able to soft or hard reboot to restore functionality, on a fourth occasion I had to wait about 24 hours for the "navigation gps router" (I think that's what the Tesla tech said) to reboot itself.
Here's my question: Is it possible these four and only occurrences of UI freeze are proximity related? I only ask now after the fourth occurrence: each time this has happened has been after parking in our city's main park (Balboa Park) and only then. I have had no issues at home or anywhere else around town. Is it possible there is some kind of "interference" at or near the locale I occasionally park in at the Park?
Has anyone else similar experiences?

Where is this park and what kind of interference do you suspect? Is there some kind of radio or microwave tower nearby or something?

Hard reboot. Soft reboot. What's the dif?

Some say a soft reboot is the two scroll wheels pressed down until the Tesla "T" appears, and the hard reboot is the same plus the brake pedal. I've heard so many conflicting reports (from everyone including multiple Tesla employees) that I always just press and hold both scroll wheels and the brake every time... and hold them until the T appears.
I do this after every software/firmware update too... treating it like a PC that just downloaded updates and wants to restart.

It's been a while since I sat in the car to watch an update, but I think it does a reboot on its own after installing an update. That is, I seem to recall the screen going black for a while, followed by the T logo appearing.

Balboa Park is San Diego's large urban park near downtown. I only raise the issue of interference of some sort at this locale because all four of my data points result from parking there. Radio/microwave... who knows, that's why I'm posting. ;) I should have mentioned that I have parked there a dozen other times with no problems.
