Default people with the Clarion 835MP

I just installed mine that i bought over the summer and i have to say i am disappointed in its design.

Pros: ITS A LIGHTSHOW! Good sound quality. Pre-programmed sound-tuneing.

Cons: The glare off the face makes it VERY difficult to read the display. It seems like you have to be faceing it dead on in order to read and enjoy the screen, but when your in the drivers seat, you are at an angle and im having trouble looking for various colour setups that can pierce through so i can see. The layout of the functions, like to see the different MP3 tags, you have to change that individually, it wont tell you all, instead only one of the many for that mp3. Theres also no clock when its off or when somehting is playing, id rather have a clock, than a time-elapsed for a song.

I really dont want to bad mouth clarion or clarion owners, but it just got to me cuz i liked my previous clarion so much, i guess i had high expectations for the upgrade.

What are you guy'* thoughts? Im not going to change it, cant afford that, but i want some imput to see how i can make the best of it.
