    Lightbulb Night mode for Google MAPS/NAV?

    DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THERE IS A POSSIBILITY TO VIEW THE MAP IN A NEGATIVE COLOR IMAGE FOR A NIGHT MODE? I FIND THE DISPLAY, EVEN AT A LOW ILLUMINATION SETTING, HAS A LOT OF INTENSITY THAT STRAINS THE EYES WHILE DRIVING IN THE DARK AT NIGHT. ANYONE ELSE HAVE FEEL THE SAME?

    I don't think so at this time. Sounds like a good addition, though.

    Just a note -- you may not want to post in all caps. It is difficult to read and is the online equivalent of yelling.

    Thumbs up

    I think that would be the best improvement to the navigator app.
    This plan was fool proof, yes! Idiot proof, no!

    No there is not. A quick search here would have answered this for you.

    Not yet. Google is taking suggestions for future updates. I find if I switch to satellite view it is typically dark enough that it achieves the same purpose.

    I agree, satellite view works for me at night as well. Maybe the new labs option will drum something up.

    I agree. I night drive with all my lights (interior) dimmed all the way down and that screen is bright.

    Actually, I think the best improvement would be the ability to mark a waypoint like every other GPS software.

    my biggest problem with the droid relates to this: WHY CANT I DIM THE DISPLAY FARTHER. AT NIGHT IT IS WAYY TOO BRIGHT. MY ITOUCH (hate to compare to apple) GETS A TON DARKER... this would save battery and not kill my eyes at night
