night mode for navi?

Searched, didn't find it. Do our cars have night mode, where the colors change to low contrast dark colors when it gets dark outside?

I dont think it changes at all, but thats a good question, ill check for you once I get my car back from the shop. I know my dads MB goes from an orange background to a dark blue but the idrive at least on e90 and e60 do not.

The display definitely goes darker when its darker outside. Each morning when I starup the engine its a bit dim outside (almost winter here), and the display is notably darker. There does not appear to be a range of darkness though - its i\either bright or dim.

Thanks boys, that's pretty much what I thought. Kinda surprised, my Dad's Lexus had night mode around 2001.

Great forum!

...and you can always adjust the brightness of the screen yourself in the iMenu.

the way this screen is put into the dash, it doesnt need a night mode.

All the other cars that have the screens flush with the dash need the fuction.

Plz explain. I assumed nightmode was to preserve night vision. I don't see how a hood makes a difference.

The screen brighness is dependent on three things:
1) The screen dims if you have your headlights on
2) A light sensor under the display (the sensor is in a small hole in the display frame, centrally below he display)
3) A relative screen brightness set in the iDrive menus.

I do not find the display distracting at night. I guess the lights on and display sensor im the display enough.
