595 display

Post by CVO Paul »

Hi Anyone not like the display. I know they say the new screen reflective properties are better then the old. I find the screen to be almost like an LCD screen where it is dark at certain angles. I have moved it up and down and no real changes. I have brightness all the way up and the screen setting on day. Any of you having these issues. Thanks

You can select a different map theme and if that does not help you can modify any of the map themes to have more contrast.

when you put the file on the unit what is the secret? I had issues with "tweeking" and exsisting file, now I put "moose" on there and andI cant find it? Does "boogies theme" mean anything to anyone?
