Crap, that is bad news. I have my wiring harness all ready to go. I tried pulling the original Blaupunkt yesterday and couldn't get it out. I guess I'll leave it for now pending this fading display issue...

It is 108 today where I live.

Thanks for the update!

It is impossible to get support because I think Blaupunkt is basically out of the car audio business. Also cannot return to Amazon because I am outside of the 30 day Prime window. Guess I will be looking for another radio that has all of this one's features!

Amazon is the best but now I need a different radio!

I have to give credit where credit is due. Amazon Prime is amazing. I called them, explained the problem of the fading display, and they issued a full refund even though I was outside of the 30 day return window! Now I just need to find another radio to fill the hole in my dash! Any other suggestions for radios that have the same feature set?
