    Default Here's a good one.

    Sat in my doctors carpark the other night which had no lighting, waiting for the wife, listening to the stereo, (CD70 NAV).

    Had been there for a bit with the sidelights on so turned them off. Of course, when the lights are on, the LCD display is much dimmer, but on turning the lights off the LCD goes back to full brightness. Needless to say i shat myself as i had been sitting in almost complete darkness for about half an hour, and when the display goes back to full brightness, it was as if someone had shoved a Maglite in my eyeball! The interior was lit up like Oxford Circus! Had to put the sidelights back on and get out the Optrex!

    My question is, is there any way of dimming the LCD display without the sidelights on?

    I've had a fiddle about and short of putting a lead curtain across the screen, I can't find a way.

    Any ideas? (Bet your all gonna be sitting in your cars tonight having a fiddle, and not in the way you were thinking)!


    Snowman, you got your ears on?

    I did the same last night, you can switch it so its always on night time ie blue and yellow instead of red and white, but don't think you can dim it with the dimmer unless your lights are on, well I at least I couldn't.
