This is a problem with a lot of i-com Smart Guages,certainly one I've and plenty of others have experienced.
I believe personaly its a design fault..and sadly not easily remedied...some people I know having replaced them several times!...and yes my consul is fully vented
The open RIB environment is a Hard place for ALL kit!! especially electronics...and like most Marine ancillaries they were probably designed for Cuddy type,or most likely enclosed Helms.
The good news is it's usually only when there's a temperature differential...and any condensation will soon dry out/disapate and doesn't seem affect the Guages adversely long term...
Tis Bloody annoying when you can't read them though!
