DASHBOARD CONTRAST SETTING
on: October 14, 2019, 09:40:50 PM
Anyone found best setting for contrast readability in normal daylight / sunshine ?
Ive just read manual on HOW to adjust settings but have had it on brightest which I find difficult to read.

Mine is 2019 same as 2017 onwards model. I've settled with setting at mid number three on the scale. Seems to be best in normal daylight or sunlight. High brightest is a bluish tint which would probably be good for dark although not ridden it in dark hours yet.

Ok, well I had the 2015 on the highest setting and never had an issue day or night, sunshine or cloud.

Have set the 2018 model the same and don't expect any issues either.

TBH, it's the best dash I've ever seen, IMO.

Mine is a 2015 model
I like the  set up of the dashboard , in all honesty this is the 1st digital dashboard I have had
( other than the odd digital gear, oil and fuel level indicators )
The CR has enticed me to the 21st century
Geoff
I will take your suggestion on board and set it up on setting 3 and see what happens
Thanks guys

Keep safe
