Auto brightness not working properly

Auto brightness not working properly

When I enter the car, the display is almost always at ~100% even though "Auto Brightness" is enabled. The display on the center console does dim to the correct level if I tap on the "Auto" brightening button in settings twice (turn it off and back on again)

Has any one else experienced this problem? My car is Model S 2018 (MCU2).

Yes I have noticed this issue since the last update. That said I have been aware that the auto function does eventually 'kick in' but only after the screen has obliterated any night-vision you may have.

I realize that it's a first-world problem but even in the morning it's way too bright.

Maybe the temporary work-around is to disable auto brightness until they fix it.

My warkaround was to enable dark mode all the time. It is easy on the eyes, clear enough for me, and may offer better privacy.
