Have a kenwood excelon kdc-x996. It is a pain in the *** to see in any kind of light at all. Didnt know if there was anything i could do, other than only drive at night lol.

Tint windows. Turn ur headlights off if you got it hooked up to the dimmer wire

Messed with the brightness and tint it didnt really help. The only color that you can see good is green. Its more the glare than any thing.if theres any light at all glare is horrendous. I will check if dimmer is hooked up but i dont think it is.

Is it a single DIN mounted in a double DIN kit?

If so you might be able to move it to the other DIN position.

Outside of that, you're probably stuck.

Yeah.. I got twenty on front, 15 back. On touch screen glare usually washes it out
