Dimming Screen on SITEX

I have a SITEX SVS760 sonar and a SITEX SVS880 GPS. Does anyone know how to dim the screens on these units for night fishing? I can't seem to find it in the owners manuals.

I have a Maycraft Pilothouse. The house is cored FG. Will a GPS with internal antenna work under the Hardtop? I trailer and I just had a branch break my external antenna for the second time.
