Default Cannot read symbology/writing on map display

What the hell is going on with the map? Even in broad daylight and the brightness on full, I cannot read/see ANY of the writing symbology on the map in VR, including the compass rose. I can just about make out the course line, and that's it...

Although not optimal, you can work around this by reducing the gain of the map. Right click on the gain rocker of the MFCD a bunch of times until the map itself becomes darker. Then increase the contrast of the map by right clicking the contrast rocker of the MFCD.

It's still not acceptable, it seems to be getting worse as time progresses.

I am not running in VR but I have a similar issue. It is difficult to see the symbology on the EHSD. The symbology looks much clearer in videos I have seen. I have attached a screenshot from my machine for reference.

Yo can use rockers, they are for that. No any problem for me with this in VR:

SYM rocker does nothing. Should increase and decrease the brightness of the symbology.

You can do map less brighter plus add more contrast by rockers (they are work from 3 patches OB ago):

As on my screen, no any problem after that to see all symbols very well ( completely legible ), near like on black screen. I dont know is it present in stable version.

"Brightness/On/Off" should control back light brightness, and "SYM" should control brightness of symbology.

That's what it should do, but doesn't.


In game, Brightness controls Symbology, so I usually turn it right down, to make the symbology black and make it show against the bright background map.

R/L, it should be, N/D, BRT, GAIN, CONT, SYM, BRT again, in that order.
