Question about Garmin GPSMAP 295 GPS Receiver
Your unit has lighting, it's just that it's set so low that you can barely see it (or not at all in bright sunlight). If it wasn't working at all then you wouldn't be able to see anything.
When the unit is on, press the power/lighting button (the red one) briefly and repeat. You will see it cycle through the highest, lowest, and user pre-sets. Stop on any of those and use the arrow up/down key to choose your own level. Press enter when finished. You can do this even when the unit appears black in bright sunlight.
