The Nav is supposed to dim at night. It doesn't. Damn, it's bright.
I go into the "display settings" from the Menu. There, I see 3 options.....Daytime color, Auto, and Nightime color. It is set on "Auto", but it still doesn't dim at night. What am I missing?
I have a 2011 with the same problem but I finally figured it out. On the left side of the steering wheel is the light dimmer. you rotate it to dim the light and then there is a click and then it is in the auto position. When that is set then when it is dark it will dim the nav/radio screen and when it is daylight it will brighten it. It is on the left/right turn signal control arm on an inner wheel. I also found out that if you pull the tip out it turns on the fog lamps.
Yup thats the answer, kinda stupid if you as me but it works with the headlights when there on the screen is dark when there off its bright, so in the rain when the lights come on the nav goes dark even in the day time, hopefully they will make that seperate from the lights one day enjoy
MTH and Mickial are indeed correct. The "Dash dimmer switch" is the key. To cause the radio/nav to dim at night, the "auto" function must be on. But also, the turn signal switch must be adjusted properly. The "dash dimmer switch" is the inside adjustment on the turn signal stalk.
'Turning that dimmer switch all the way back will cause the overhead light to come on.
One click back fron that will make the overhead light go out, but will leave the dash lights on "bright".
On click back from that will still leave the instrument cluster on bright, but will dim the radio/nav......IF the "nav select" is set to "auto".
Hope that clears it up for you. It did for me. Thanks, guys.
PS...My dealer/salesman didn't know this. I'll show him tomorro. Apparently this is something new on the '011s.
