Navman GPS is too dim....

OK, so it isn't a Garmin GPS it's a Navman. No model numbers though.

It's like the brightness is set to the lowest level, but it's at max.

Any ideas people.............

have a word with Jeff Hutcheon, he had the same issue with a Navman, think when he sent it back it was the tube that had gone, they repaired it but I can't remember how much, I do remember having to give him a wine gum to stop the shaking though

quick google seems to be that the backlight and possibly the inverter can go. Common problem on the Navman GPS

Are you sure it's not the viewing angle that's the problem?...Have you tried standing on a box?

It'll be the backlight & unfortunately means screen replacement.

Navman aren't represented in the uk anymore either... ;-(

If you let me know the model I can give you a ball park price to repair.
