Threw my Ray Bans on yesterday after work, looked at my Attitude and it wasn't reading anything. I thought I had a problem until I removed my sunglasses to see it was displaying just fine. The polarized lenses were filtering it out. Weird.

I've had that problem with some of my digital gauges on my wifes car and LED displays on Stereos. Next time tilt your head and you will see the display again. :thumbsup:

I was tilting my head and it would only make a slight difference. It was pretty confusing at first. :hehe:

Man.....I had to send my old unit back and it did not black out.....I go the new one and black......I even had them send me a second monitor just to check it out.....tilting your head sucks.....I've had a couple people ask me what was wrong with my neck

What's happening is the combination of polarized lenses. The lens on the Attitude or stereo is apparently polarized and so with your glasses, they cancel all light. Remember those little tags you used to be able to look thru and turn at the store to prove your new sunglasses where polarized? Same function at work.

I know how they work but there seems to be a standard for which way the light waves are filtered out.....I guess it's just annoying that they have it backwards
