I find myself turning adjustment up and down during the day vs night to see speed. Seems when lights are on in the day time, the speed is not visible so I can either crank adjustment past click point or turn off headlights to get it bright enough to see it.

If you aren't using the "Daytime Screen" function (under the "Display" section of your MFD) you may want to try that as well. I find that I can usually get a pretty good look at all the readouts, no matter how bright it gets inside my car.
Drive happy,
Moo :)

I am talking speedometer not GPS, I know about that day/night setting on it.

I drive with my headlights on all the time, and I don't have any problems seeing the speed readout, or any other displays.

Ahh, so you were. Sorry for that oversight. Like mgaelli, I drive with my headlights on all the time, but I use the little wheel to adjust my dashboard for day or night as well; it's the only solution I've found.

I do NOT use my lights during the day as it seems to sap the battery- big time...... (I checked the "energy" screen.) Big difference in energy conservation when I drive with the lights OFF during the day.

I turned the little wheel all the way "up" to the brightest setting when I first got the car. It stays at that position day and night-- all the time.

Happy driving!
