+mx125 Posted February 14, 2010 Share Posted February 14, 2010 I just got a Dakota 20. The screen seems quite dark to me. I've read a few reviews that refer to the slightly darker screen but wanted to ask if it is (as the store told me when I called them) actually the way they are designed . . . .and not a faulty one. For reference i have an older etrex vistaC which is very bright white with backlight on . . .and a Zumo which is extremely (blindingly) bright white with screen at even 50% brightness. My Dakota is definitely too dark to see unless i hold it directly in bright light. With the backlight on (full) it is vewable but definitey more muted greyish icons. Barely white and no real "glow". Not bright white. I can see that the screen captures I've taken look the same as posted on other reviews and in the manual . . ie. Great! . . but the reality is far less so. Is this the way these new units are . . .or do I have weak unit?? Thanks. Quote Link to comment
