This is the prebuilt 1.3 off the Opengauge website (ordered 6 or so weeks ago), but with the Canadian code chip from another member.

Ok, so this is what I can confirm. At Brightness 0, the screen is the brightest, and the lowest at Brightness 3.

Now the issue is, apart from it being back to front (or is that how its suppose to be?) is that even at the lowest Brightness level, that still lights up the car like a Christmas tree and obviously perks the interest of passers by...

Is there a particular wire that I can setup a flick switch to, so that I can turn off the LCD, but not upset the EEPROM which needs to remain on?

EDIT: Had a quick look on wiki, that 5V input to the LCD, any issues with using that hooked up to a switch?
