I don't seem to have an option to change the colour on screen for my pro nav 300. It's sometimes hard to see in bright sunshine. Can you help please.

Lets see if we can help you. Lets take the bright sunshine issue first. You can adjust the backlighting on the device which may help that situation. To do this:
1) Click on the system icon. Then select the BACKLIGHT button. Now with the backlight menu up, tap the right side of the brightness bar (the top one) until the indicator is all the way to the right (bright sun). That should help some.
For the changing the colour issue, not sure if you mean night color options or color options themselves. For night color options, tap anywhere in the top 1/3 of the screen to bring up an options menu. Then select NIGHT COLOURS to change to softer night colours when driving at night.
To change the colour scheme during the day, according to the manual, when you turn the device on, it shows the setup screen. From within the 'Full Navigator' menu, select SETUP. From within this menu, should find an option for Colour schemes. Select this to choose the colour scheme that you'd like.
These devices always have many menus and aren't too easy to navigate. Hopefully these instructions will help you find what you're looking for. The entire manual for the device can also be found at:
Hope this helps!

Hi My screen is really dark when inside night pictures. I have tried to increase brightness.But can't adjust. Can you help plse ?

The set may have an ambient light detector - if so then the set up options will allow you to vary the screen brightness - a simple check to find out if this could be the problem would be to display an image during the day then if possible close the blinda and make the room dark - alternatviley do the same at night then switch the room lights on and off and see if the brightness changes.

Acura 2007 tsx with navigation in the auto day night mode the nav screen doesn't automatically change to the night setting how can i fix this?

Turn the display brightness knob (the one up by the speedometer) down. When the brightness knob is at max the navi will not go into night mode. This information is in the manual buried somewhere.

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.
