    Hello Speakman:

    When you say "unable to turn down the brightness", do you mean the device does not respond to changes you make in the brightness slider, or do you mean you cannot find the brightness control?

    When you turn the device on, there will be a little round icon in the upper left corner that has two dots & dashes on it. Touch that icon, and on the next screen, touch the large button on the right side that has a picture of a moon on it. That will put the device into night mode.

    Now, from within night mode (a dimmer screen), you can explore the various settings available until you find the brightness control.

    There is also an on-line, downloadable manual available for your device, go to the link below and you can download the manual in whatever language you like best. In that manual, you will find detailed instructions for setting the brightness level.

    TomTom also provides a surprisingly good selection of videos on YouTube that explain how to perform various functions. The video library includes videos for all the different TomTom models, so you might have to be selective to find videos specific to the Rider 550. Here's a link to the video library:

    The videos are available in English, French, and Spanish.

    Hi
    @Speakman56

    Have you tried a Soft/Drum roll restart on the device ??? This restarts the devices Operating System afresh

    Charge the device for at least 2Hrs "OR" have the device plugged into a power supply
    Press and hold the on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound then release the on/off button.
    You won’t lose anything; it’s just like rebooting your PC
    I use a Soft/drum-roll start after any upgrade large or small.
    It’s also useful to keep in mind for sorting out most minor niggles......

    Hi
    @Speakman56

    If you tip the top of screen away from you at an angle, does the colour and contrast of the screen improve ???
