    Sorry if this has been discussed but I've already gone through many threads.

    1. Is there any app yet to allow for EASY bookmarks of previous or preset addresses?

    2. Is there any dimming function for Navigation in Car Mode? It almost blinds me at night!!



    Thanks all...

    1. On home screen, long press until window opens, choose shortcuts, choose directions, type in destination and save. I put them in a folder on my home page.
    2. Car mode, menu, settings, sound and display, brightness, automatic. That would be my guess. I haven't used it at night.

    Try enabling "satellite" view at night, it knocks down the brightness a level or two, not as much as it needs to be though.

    I use "Google Map Address Book"

    Simple program that sets a marker on Google Map.

    To adjust the brightness I use an app called Brightness Profiles. Been very happy with it and it can be adjusted to levels lower than normal - perfect for night driving. And it does support profiles you can create yourself.
