    Brightness adjustment on navigation screen

    Hello all,

    Relatively new poster, long time lurker. Hope there is a simple solution to my issue. I have an 08 CTS and the brightness of the pop up navigation/audio screen is very dim. Is there an adjustment to increase brightness? Appreciate any responses.

    yeah, theres a night/day adjustment button. do you have the owners manual for the car? you would probably find a more detailed and quicker response in there

    Just below the clock is a bar with several buttons, including the emergency flasher. The far right button has what looks like an asterisk over a slash with a crescent moon under it. That cycles you through the three settings, day, night, and auto. I leave mine on day all the time.

    And make sure your NAV software is fairly current. I believe there was an early fix back in 08-09 that addressed day/night/auto setting operation.

    I have an 08 with the newest maps and it hasn't helped.
    I keep mine on day all time time as well.
    Would have been nice to be integrated with the dimmer switch.

    Thanks for your assistance, I was able to locate the proper button to make the adjustment.
    I did look in the manual before posting but did no locate this issue.
    Forums are great a venue for sharing and assisting folks. I appreciate your help today.

    Glad to have been of assistance.

    Actually, this stuff isn't in the Owner's Manual -- it's in a separate booklet called the 2008 CTS Navigation & Audio Guide. I'd post a copy but it's too large -- IM me and I'll e-mail a PDF copy of it to you.
