[aprssig] Arizona Heat/Electronic Equipment

What part of Arizona?  It is a pretty big state.  I am about 30 miles from the Arizona stateline and I am considering turning my heater pilot light back on.  I have been using the heater in the car more than the a/c lately.  Once you get into the higher elevations, Arizona can cool off quite a bit.

I have spent time in Las Vegas, NV, in 110 degrees.  I never worried about the gear in the car.  Never had a problem with it.  Sometimes an LCD display will darken, but it recovers,  If it doesn't look like rain, leave a window cracked open.  Makes it nicer for humans, too, when you return to the car.  Get a sun reflector to put in the windshield when parked in the sun.  I am not sure it keeps the interior that much cooler, but it prevents a hot steering wheel and shades LCD panels.
