Default Garmin Bluechart G2 Colors

New 7612xsv and 7608xsv on the same NMEA 2000 bus. Both have the latest software revisions and the same revisions of Bluechart G2. Both are auto-backlit at 100% brightness. One chart has orange land with blue water, the other has yellow land with white water, on both the fishing and navigation charts. Anyone know why there's a difference and if the colors can be made the same?

Sounds like one is set to 'day' or 'auto' for colors and one is set to 'night'.

Thanks!...that's exactly how I would describe them. Maybe I changed a setting. I didn't realize there's a night and day setting.

You are on the right path ... Color Mode is the term in the manual ...

Settings -> System -> Sound and Display -> Color Mode
