    Icon7 problems seeing hu in sunlight

    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.

    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.

    Re: problems seeing hu in sunlight

    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.
