Dull Display Colours on GO 51

I have a new GO 51. The display colours are very dull and hard to see in Sunlight. On my Old Via 280 I could download and install new Display Colour Schemes. Is it possible to do this on tyhe GO 51? I can't find any obvious way to do this.

    Hi
    Are you using the Tomtom supplied car power adapter or a 3rd party Adapter ???
    The Tomtom Adapter outputs 1.2AMPS
    The problem is usually caused by using the USB ports on the car dash (500mA), or an unsuitable power adapter or an unsuitable or faulty USB lead

    If you're like me and require 2 USB outlets, I use one of these without any problems
    It keeps both my iPad and Tomtom devices fully charged

    Thank You YamFazMan. That does help make the present display brighter. Still, it would be nice if i could download and install othe rcolour schemes. The ones I used on my old Via 280 were brighter and had more contrast. How do I write to Tom TTom to encourage them to do this.
    Cheers

    Hi
    Try.....
    From the main screen
    Tap the 4Dot (.... Menu) Icon (Screen Bottom left)
    Swipe left or Tap the mid/right edge of the screen to go to the Cogwheel Icon
    Tap Cogwheel Icon
    Tap the Appearance Icon
    Tap the Display Icon
    Tap the Theme Icon and choose theme (I prefer Cosmic Blue)
    Tap Blue arrowhead Icon ( > ) top right on screen to exit

    HI Again. I did find that ability to change themes thanks. My point is that all of the themes are rather dull and have little contrast. On my previous TomTom I could go to the TomTom Website and download and install other colour schemes. It seems as is this cannot be done on my new GO 51. There also seems to be a much smaller range of voices to download and install. Anyway - thanks for your help.

    Hi

    I find if you incline the screen back slightly it improves the contrast of the display
    I only ever use The Computer Voice (Serena in the UK) I prefer to have spoken instruction
