I just bought the X50 and found out that my blueblocker sunglasses makes it impossible to see the blue screen except on overcast days and it's then still hard to see. I only wear blueblockers so switching is not an option for me.
I still have my old 8500 I bought 5 years ago and I thought maybe I could switch out the LEDS so the new X50 will be red (will install other one in wifes car), but I was afraid to do it since the boards close to the display are a little different in the circuitry. Maybe the blue takes more or less power and I might fry something. Has anyone tried to do this?
