Make sure the orange wire with white stripe is connected to your dash illumination/parking lamp circuit. There should be a tag on it that says 'ILLUM' (unless the installer clipped it). That should dim the display whenever your lights are on.

If that doesn't do it enough I think your going to have to dial down the brighness - and that will do it for all functions.

    Auto dim works on all screens except the Navigation/map screen. Nav screen is too bright at night.

2000 GRAND CARAVAN: Extremely dim headlights, because headlights are so narrow. Installed 9007SU Silverstar Ultra bulbs 3 years ago. Age 77 so poor night vision + still DIM headlights is BAD at night! ...


The silverstar bulbs while brighter, have a considerably shorter life span than conventional bulbs. If the headlights are dim, it would mean a bad electrical connection most commonly a bad ground. If they are just too dim for your liking and burn at the normal brightness, you might want to consider having auxilliary headlamps installed.

Nuvi 205w screen won't light- any ideas? it's brand new and fully charged. I can tell it's on, because it generates sounds when I touch the screen.


If you can't see anything then it is a hardware issue. Return for replacement as soon as possible.

If you can see faint images in the background then your screen is just too dim. You will have to try to navigate the dim screen to the settings menu. Click on the Tools icon, bottom right of main screen. Click on "settings" then "display". Select brightness and adjust.

One other suggestion is try an update. Plug the unit into your PC and run garmin webupdater. Once done the screen may light up but its a long shot. Here is the webupdater link.

Dim Screen on the 2001 Toyota Prius


Yes the screen dims automatically when the lights are on to suit night driving. I am not specifically familiar with the 01 model, however on my 08 model, the display brightness is also manually adjustable via a button located below and to the right of the display. The button is marked with a series of short lines assembled in an arc. Hope this helps.

DNX7100 Remote inop


The problem I had was with the remote control unit for the steering wheel controls. It shorted out. The head unit was fine. But, when the sterring control unit is shorted it also prevents the hand held remote from working.

It does not auto dim, it just remembers the settings. As soon as it has a GPS fix and knows the correct time it will switch to either day or night mode, and use the last setting you chose for that mode. Just give it a minute or so to get that GPS fix.
Mapsource, you mean the one on the PC? That you can upgrade by downloading it from Garmin, If you mean the maps on the GPS, you gave to order the DVD from Garmin and pay for the unlock key.

It only goes down half way. You have to gently push it down the rest of the way to expose the SD card slot.
