I was looking at the post nameeri made about the Transflective upgrade here and noticed one of his posts said this......"Here is a shot of the screen without sun. the contrast is super enhanced as you can tell from the pic. I took this in my Garage." So I thought to myself, "I wonder if my screen has brightness options." For the last year I had been ****ed off with not being able to see **** on my Xenarc during the day and haven't bothered using the remote for anything because the IR receiver for the remote was hanging behind the dash somewhere. Well I've spent all week getting my car ready for the shows this summer which meant I had to pull the screen from the dash and reposition it so I moved the IR receiver for the remote up into the vent where I could point the remote into the vent and use it. Today I checked the menu for the screen using the remote and guess what I found.....BRIGHTNESS LEVELS! I know, it's a no brainer, but I honestly didn't even think of checking for it. It was on 27 as a default setting which is why I couldn't see **** so I put it up to 99 and WOW! I can see it now in the daytime as well as I could see it before in the nighttime, it's amazing. I have no trouble seeing anything on the screen on a bright sunny day, I should have done this a year ago. And also, before I had a lot of troubles playing videos because the dash points towards the ceiling and I couldn't see a lot of the colours at that angle. This fixes that 80% as well. So if you're having trouble seeing your screen, you might have tried it already, but take a look at the brightness settings in your screen menu!
