Reflections in the windshield would depend on the shield. I doubt my windbender would give off any at all. I ride at night all the time and would change anything that would do that.

It has been a good while since I road in the dark and now can not recall if those were ever lit up.



Any help on this?



Oh, for anyone wondering, the button that says DIM, it dims the LCD display, I only ever used it to go to the next screen, who knew?



Thanks


The lights are not backlit. I bought a set of LEDs from EC, but I got screwed because all they do is put bright lights behind the buttons. I will never buy another EC product because of the blatant rip-off. Instead, I built a map light with a circuit that lets me dim to a comfortable brightness. Got some good use out of my 3D printer!

That looks interesting. I am looking around for a used speaker shelter that I can experiment with, but so far no luck finding one. When I was building aircraft they used these little post lamps for this sort of thing, but they are expensive from places like Aircraft Spruce, maybe I can hit my local surplus shop.
