Hey guys, I have a wondefoo PX-5 Android 8.0 Headunit.
I'm pretty much satisfied with it but as I live in a very warm and sunny country, I almost can't see anything on my headunit as it's simply isn't bright enough.

The brightness is set to the maximum, and i've tried the trick with the "reverse camera brightness" which didn't help at all.
I started this thread on the hardware development as i'm sure it's a hardware "problem", and not software related.

Is there any fix to my issue? Even a paid one like an upgraded panel or something like that.
It hurts too much to "throw away" a 350$ headunit which is OEM look to my car.

Thanks, in advanced.

Try to tint your windows to dim down the light on your car.

If you can take some detailed internal pictures of your unit and lcd panel board, I might be able to suggest increasing the brightness potentiometer (if available.)

Even better, only drive through tunnels.

The sad part is that my windows are tinted, 85% on the back, 65% on the front, almost doesn't help at all.
