Instrument Panel readability in daylight
In my 2017 RAV4 Hybrid XLE I have a problem with readability of the instrument panel during daylight. Depending on the time of day, the brightness of the sun and the direction of travel, when I glance at the instrument panel (which contains the speedometer, fuel gage coolant temperature plus other quantities) I cannot discern the display because the instrument panel is inadequately illuminated. Sometimes all I can see are black circles on both the speedometer and tachometer sides.The most important display on the instrument panel is the speedometer and there are times circumstances when I just cannot see it.
I notice that the longer I stare at the display (while stopped), while my eyes adjust to the change in ambient light, eventually I can read it, but this means I must divert my vision from the road ahead and of course that is unsafe, so I don't do this while in motion.
Is anyone else having a problem like this?
