Yeah, but that's more a property of the touchscreen technology.
I haven't seen many touchscreens that don't have that problem.
All I do is move the unit a bit to get a better sight angle or shade it.

Back light is on full--when the sun shines on the rural portions of the map lakes are very pale and hard to define--TY

I have the Summit Series North America map on my 710 and the map's contrast is fine.

I have to ask, do you have the back light on brightest setting?

I have an explorist 610 with the Canada Summit Series on it--the map has poor contrast and is very hard to see lakes and features especially when in the sunlight--compared to the garmin oregon maps the contrast is really poor--any ideas how to increase the visibility of these maps? twisty
