Bright glare on the stereo display has plagued us for as long as we've had the sun and car stereos. Sometimes there's just nothing you can do about it. But sometimes there is. At Crutchfield, we've found that there are some stereo features that can definitely help, like being able to change the display color, increasing the brightness and contrast, and best of all, being able to tilt the display to remove the glare. Check out our examination of the "glare problem" in this video, and keep these things in mind when shopping for a new car receiver.
