I also use the daytime standard colour for both nightand day, but I do turn the brightness down 40% at night, as find it a bit bright.I have started to play around with this now that it is getting dark outside at night and found that daytime standard colour setting and max brightness works best for both day and night.

I've set my night time colours to something different - but I can't remember what, as even though I set it to switch automatically, it always seems to want to stay on daytime?
Which probably just means I;m doing something wrong (again) somewhere, but I don't find it distracting
I going to pump for "no, not stupid", on the grounds thatHi - just picked up my Type R GT and am finding exactly the same issue - whatever you change the auto night settings for the colour to, it just reverts back to the day colours. Anyone else get this? Guess I am doing something stupid
Perfect - works like a charm now.I going to pump for "no, not stupid", on the grounds that
a) I asked the question way back, and
b) it's caught out lots of others since too
You need to check the 'dial illumination brightness' setting - the small knob on the dash to the left of the rev counter.
If you turn it all the way clockwise, it's at brightest, and uses daytime settings for the sat nav even at night.
If you turn it one click to the anti-clockwise, the dial illumiation is just as bright, but it uses night time colours on the sat nav at night
Turning it further anti-clockwise then also dims the dial illumination
hope that helps!
