Question about Garmin StreetPilot c530 GPS Receiver
When I turn on my garmin, the picture is so faint I cannot see what to do. Please help.
The display settings can be programmed with different brightness settings during day time or night time in auto mode. Meaning, you can have 2-3 brightness setting during the day at 50% at 7 a.m., 80% at 10 a.m. and 100% at 1 p.m.
The nuvi 700 series uses time for brightness set up when in auto mode. So don't be surprise if the brightness setting changes during day or night since brightness setting varies from individual users.
How I found this was on monday morning. Noon time sunday, I went to work and set brightness setting to 100%. At dusk, it went to night mode at 10% brightness as programmed. Monday morning turned on my 760 and check brightness setting. It was 80%. I said hmmm. I just change my settings to 100% around noon yesterday. Decided to wait until noon time yesterday and see what happens. Sure enough, display settings was now at 100%.
My findings concludes that the garmin 700 series with 2.5 software version display settings are base on time and remembers the brightness setting in that given time and can have multiple settings during the day where you have it less brighter at at 50% at 6 .am., 80% at 9 a.m., 100% at 12 noon, 60% at 3 or 4 p.m. until it goes to night mode.
This may also be possible to other models as well.
seems it might depend on what time of day you change the brightness setting as garmins' units reportedly keep that time in thier setting even thought it isnt offered.
