Default Furuno VX2 screen

I currently have a fununo navnet vx2 with the 10" screen. I think this was the original screen from 2005 when the boat was built. Did furuno ever change the screen that went into the navnet to make it brighter or clearer. Some of the units that are for sale used seem much brighter than mine(yes mine is set to the highest setting). Also the resolution on the others also looks much better. Also, I have never performed a software update since I bought the boat and I doubt the prior owner ever did. Do you think updating the software could fix the screen and maybe improve the speed of the unit? Thanks in advance.

You can go on their website and upload the updates into a blank card and run it on the machine. Very easy and you'll have all updates

On one of the updates I did (I think it was the last) it addressed the brightness issue
