Hi All,

I had my car for about a week now. I do a few cruises in the evening some days and I noticed that the SYNC 3 screen will alternate from the day mode (white background) and the black background (night mode) when driving during the dusk time. I changes like every 20 secs and is kind of annoying. I think this is a sw bug if you leave the display setting on auto. If you force the day or night setting in the setting screen then it seems to stop. Just curious if anyone else noticed this?

It uses the light sensor on the dash, so untill the sun is down its fighting with the shadows. Not the best way to control that function.

In comparison, GoogleMaps seems to use today's local Sunset Time to determine when to switch its display to "Night Mode".

So it just happens once, about half an hour before it actually becomes dark, which is much better than blink-blink-blink.

You'd think it could use both the sensor and the time of day to determine what to do, but I guess indoor/covered driving is a concern too...
