Driver display brightness

Post by Hot Weasel » Fri May 17, 2019 9:36 pm

Is there way of turning down the brightness of the driver display? I can see the adjustment for the central display but not the drivers one. I took my C5 out tonight for the first time and noticed in the rear view mirror my face was lit up like I had a laptop on the dash.

many thanks

I had the same problem - you need to adjust the display in the tablet with the headlights on...

When you want to set the driver display (dashboard) brightness, turn the ignition on, go to the 'Settings and Tools' menu by clicking the gear icon in the top right corner of the tablet screen, select 'Screen Configuration', then choose 'Brightness' in the tabs at the bottom of the screen.

This screen has two displays for brightness which change automatically depending on whether or not you have turned the lights on. If you haven't turned the lights on, the display shows the tablet only brightness, if you have turned the lights on it shows a different value of brightness.

I hope that helps?
