I find the IFD100 Map view very hard to see course and waypoints in daylight because of the dark land background.  Just not enough contrast.
In Foreflight I use the Low in Route IFR which has a white background.  Good contrast. The course and waypoints stick out very nicely even in bright sunlight. 
Is there a way we could get this into the IFD100.  Even if we have to import Jepp Charts. 
Anybody have other suggestions?

Rapidly click the Home Button 3 times.  That will reverse the color palette of the iPad.

Yes! Much easier to see in bright daylight!  
Thanks for the Tip!

What else might need to be set to do this? 3 rapid pushes of the home button on my iPad doesn't do anything.

Did some research, have to make a accessibility shortcut to make that work.

Thanks, it does help.
