Default I can't see it !!

I installed a raymarine DX 500 on my project boat.And tried them both out today.Boat did great,however the DF is useless because with my glasses on the screen is totally black.And even with my glasses off,you still cannot see clearly what is on the screen. The "brightness" is all the way up. The gps[ SH 155C] screen is crystall clear. If the DF were as sharp as the GPS,it would be perfect!
Any suggestions anyone?

And what kind of glasses are we talkin' about here? I used my 500x just fine with a good pair of Costas even in direct sunlight...
