    dim the screen for night driving? The Nav screen with the white background causes a glare at night... any solutions that I may have missed? Is there a night mode?

    Thanks...

    I was hoping for the same setting but I have been unable to find one. Rumor has it 2.1 will provide that option but who knows when that will get here.

    Yeah, out of the box there is no night mode :( although some have suggested turning ON Satelllite View as that is darker than the stock Map View, and that can help at night.

    No longer have to install the apk. You can now get it from the Market.

    The night mode only works while in Nav mode only. There is no toggle to switch to night mode, its auto based on the time of day. Don't get me wrong its nice to have, but don't get your hopes up for a truly "night mode" experience.

    I know I can get "Google Maps" from the market. However, mine says "Installed". I have the pinch and zoom (latest version), but I don't see the night mode (although I use the Power Manager widget to do what you are saying).
