2009 Honda Fit: Easy Dimmer - One Knob, No Waiting
August 28, 2009
Since we jump in and out of different cars all the time, it's easy to notice the little differences that make a car special, even if it's something most consumers wouldn't care about like cupholder placement or whether there's a mirror on the passenger-side sun visor. But props really have to be given to our 2009 Honda Fit Sport for having a really easy-to-find dimmer switch. Some cars I've been in make you scroll through screens to dim the interior lights while others have two different switches for the nav screen and the dash lights.
But in the Fit? One knob, no waiting. I don't know if you can see my hand in the above video, but the knob is right there below the instrument panel. AND you can turn it down really low for those with sensitive eyes or switch it to really bright in which case it switches the background on the nav screen map from night black to day white (not shown). Easy-peasy!
