I used to be able to see the navigation system from the drivers seat during the daytime. Now I can barely see it and is of no use during the day. As mentioned in earlier responses. I can see perfectly when dark outside. I don't know if there are any settings I can change so as to see during the day. I looked at the manuel and I couldn't find anything.

I have figured it out on my own. The settings had been changed.
It looks like I have been charged $45.00 for this, can this be cancelled as I no longer require any assistance and figured it out on my own? Please advise asap
Thanks
