OK....so....how about a "dashboard" dimmer (variable resistor/rheostat) for the lights in front of you, at night?

I'm "beating you to it"...no comments about "dim bulb" allowed!

I voted no, not for the reason in the poll but because I don't need it.

I'm probably wrong here, but I thought the Gl1800 already has a dimmer?

I agree with Rudy. I don't feel the need for it either.
