Crusader Jensen radio

I have a 270ret Crusader, that has a jensen radio in the Bedroom near the bed. The radio LCD light is so bright at night, it lights the room up. It has no way to turn the back light off. Would love to have the option to turn the light off at night.

You might try stopping by a window tint shop and see if they would give you a small piece of window tinting that you could stick over the display to tone down the brightness. Had to do that with an alarm clock one time and it worked like a charm.

If it's the same Jensen that we have in our Tracer if you go through the menu there is a setting for the display brightness.

Is there a setting for "OFF" (just for the blue backlight)?
