    Start 52
    The brightness of the screen is weak in daylight
    Brightness is set to 100%
    When I turn off the power (removing the ignition key), the display lights up to an appropriate brightness.
    How do I get a better brightness ?

    Are you plugging the device into a usb port in the car? If so, don't. Insufficient power to charge the battery AND operate the device. Use the provided car charger.

    It turned out that I used the power supply from my old Tomtom Start 25, which was in the car. It has been replaced with the supplied power supply, and now everything works ....
    So you were right about the USB port !
