Openguage/MPGuino - does the pre-assembled unit have a backlight display?

I finally got back around to ordering one of these. I haven't yet, but want to. It has been suggested to me to get the pre-assembled unit, that is what I will do.

The unit that is on the opengauge/mpguino site, does it have a back light display for night use? If so can you adjust the contrast or brightness?

As soon as I get this answered I will get one on order.

Yes, it's a backlit LCD display. There are 3 (or 4?) selectable brightness settings, you can cycle through them by pressing the middle button on the unit.
