Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

Sorry to hear of any trouble with your device.

May I ask:

1) The AGE of the device?

2) When this issue was first noticed?

That is - was the display OK for a while, and then CHANGED, OR

- is it being used in a different vehicle (with different lighting conditions), OR

- has it been like this since new?

Thanks

It was purchased 9/07/2013. It was first noticed 9/03/2015. It was O.K. on previous uses until we began our trip on 9/03/2015. It has been used in this vehicle before with no problems
Expert:  Greg A. replied 1 year ago.

Hi again and thanks for that.

OK - may I ask:

- if you have found and used the Screen Brightness adjustment?

- if so, can you actually adjust the brightness for any period of time?

Thanks

Hi again,

OK - let me find the brightness controls for you.

While I do that, may I ask if you have the system manual handy?

If not, would an electronic (PDF) version help with the operation of the device?

Thanks

Expert:  Greg A. replied 1 year ago.

Here is a link to the electronic (PDF) version of the manual - if you need it.

Click here --> Manual

From the instructions on page 1 (page 6 of the PDF), middle right column.

Start at the MAIN screen and touch SETTINGS, then DISPLAY, then BRIGHTNESS.

That should make a "slider bar" appear, where you can slide the bar to adjust the brightness of the screen.

Let me know if that works for you.

Thanks

Very good - I'm glad I could help and that worked for you.

You should see some "smiley faces" or "stars" to do that, but please let me know if you do NOT see them or can not use them.
