I guess we have to find a way to have master control over all the interior dash and instrument lighting.

In my case the dim switch does not indeed adjust the brightness of the Nav screen, but it does dim the interior (mood) lights, the climate, radio, etc. controls and the HUD.

It does not dim the instrument cluster, but that is the case also for the cluster during the day; it is not dimmable.

The Nav screen is capable to go into the "night mode" at least manually; I still need to test it at night to see if it goes to “night mode” automatically.

That said, I have no problem with my instrument cluster not being dimmable. It still looks so much better.
