What you describe sounds like normal operation (at least on my vehicle).
Interesting, thanks. I see yours is 2005. I suppose it's possible that the malfunction is within my brain rather than the vehicle. But I was driving early Monday morning with bright sunrise sort of in my face and couldn't see gauges at all. Can't recall ever having that problem before. The owner manual uses the phrase "full daytime brightness" in context of adjusting nighttime gauge brightness. Thought I recalled gauges being brightly backlight at night with lights turned off, then dimmer after lights switched on (and adjustment knob in effect). Curious if anyone else thinks this is normal operation, esp. for 2008-2010 (since 2008 was significant refresh).
