You can adjust the brightness at each level when it is on that level and the GPS will keep the level that % each time it switches. Default for night is 20%. If you go to Settings - Display - Color Mode you can select day, night, or auto, for background changes. Default is auto.
Thank you Paul and JetSpeed ...it was, indeed, on auto and it needed my touch to get the display brightness up to where it is more useful ... darn, it is heck getting old! Great bike, great Nav, great forum, with great folks!
