Magellan 1700 starts out bright then goes dim

When the Magellan 1700 first powers up, the screen is bright and then goes dim, hard to see in daylight. I have checked the "Bright" settings in the Menu and it is all the way up to the brightest setting.

SOURCE: switches on but goes directly to system settings - no way back

reset the unit (read your manual link below) if that doesnt work, the digitizer (touch screen) is probably broken.

Yes, go to Start>Control panel>Power Options. There also should be a screen brightness key on your key board, that looks like a sun shining, with arrows pointing up & down. To use that key, hit the FN key, right next to the Ctrl key. Push & hold the FN key, while pushing the up arrow. That should increase the brightness of your display. Good luck.

ok , you have checked the brightness settings, check battery power settings as well. you may have to do a hard reset so back up your info. If doing a hard reset, pull the battery and charge it on its own if you have a cradle. Hope this works for you
