    Default Gauge lights glare at night

    My 13 OBV is tough to drive at night. Does anyone else find that the gauge lights glare right off the windshield. I was thinking about just unhooking the lights or setting up a switch or dimmer. I think I would only unplug the tach and speedo. I have yet to check the wire situation on whAt would be the easiest fix. Am I the only one who is annoyed by this?

    Yes, you are the only person I've ever read post about this.

    Turn a negative into a positive and tell all your buds it's the very expensive optional heads up display.

    You can replace the bulbs with different ones. Maybe an amber or green would give off less light and reduce the glare you are getting.

    My perfect pass display completely blinds me at night.
    So far the only solution I have come up with is to put a towl or my shirt over it.

    I put blue LED's in mine for bling. They make it worse to drive at night, not better.

    I deal with it since they match all the rest of the blue LED that's in my boat.

    Red would be the best as it does not effect your night vision. I just had blue underwater lights installed but still going to use red in mine. The green ones in mine do the same and make it hard to see through the windshield. I usually find myself standing up and taking bugs in the face LOL...
