- Using a Garmin 520 at night !
Seems pretty straightforward in the owners manual (Page 2).Posted 1 year ago
Press any key to turn on the backlight.
From the Status page press Brightness > Brightness to adjust the brightness, press Brightness > Backlight Timeout to adjust the timeout.
That’s not actually how it works!
You can only adjust the brightness. You have to go all into the settings to adjust time or to stay on. As bob say above other option is to leave it on all the time is settings but then it zaps the battery in day time rides.
Garmin seem to have made a basic usability errorPosted 1 year ago
Leaving the backlight on all the time is fine, but weekends I’ll often be out for 4 hour rides so I shouldn’t need to keep going into se things to turn off for daytime rides ….. All of a sudden it could easily just 3 rides and battery is flat in the event I forget to charge it
I find it hard to see why the software guys at Garmin have over looked this …..se thing the brightness is a single click but you have to navigate several menus to keep backlight on
The Garmin knows the time so it would surely be easy to programme it to stay on in the dark !?Posted 1 year ago
