H&S Mini Maxx EGT reading going haywire

Trucks in sig, I have a mini maxx and I have noticed lately when i jump on the pedal everyonce in a while (not everytime), the EGT reading will start to climb them drop down to 350 then go back up, then drop down to 120 and go all kinds of sparadic. Has anyone seen this before?
I know im not on the latest update, havent updated in a few months but I have not seen this before.

Maybe the probe is going bad? I haven't noticed any jumps.
