2019 A220 Automatic - Navigation Font Color

All,
I just got the 2019 A220 and so disappointed by poor readability of Street Names on the map. Street names on the map are using White Font and its blurry/shadow behind the letters no matter what zoom in/out settings. I tried 2D, 3D no change. Also selecting 'Satellite' under Advance options does nothing. What is this setting supposed to do?
On my 2017 GLS550 I have same color (white) for Street Names BUT much crisper and readable day or night. This is first car for my daughter and she is not happy with this crappy readability of maps while driving. Dealer has done software update, no change. Since MBUX is coming into most 2020 models, I am not happy as my GLS is due for end of lease in April 2020 and new GLS will have the same crappy MBUX. I checked 202 GLE and other 2019 A220 cars at dealership. Same CRAP...
Anyone with any ideas? I do not think there is a Font Color settings anywhere in MBUX or elsewhere...Any pointers/tricks will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Can you provide a photo? In mine the street names are easily read though I never have to really look at them when using navigation especially with augmented reality displaying the current street rather prominently.

I don't see the problem either. I have a white font but no shadow behind the letters. Small but clear writing.

see photo, actual street names (on the map) have a shadow behind them. While driving if I want to read street names barely readable...
Also has anyone selected the Satellite option in Advance Settings and see the map change? Mine does nothing...

Thatís got to be your eyes. They look fine to me even on your photo.

I will test the satellite function when I get home tonight. I want to say itís a satellite view when you zoom out. And then a 3D view when zoomed in. In bigger cities it will show the actual details of large buildings like how tall, the shape etc.

I asked my sales rep to look at the map street names, he said the same (blurry). On my gls550 its crisp no issues. May be glossy 10 inch panel.

Btw with Satellite view, I was hoping screen looks more like Google maps on your laptop or phone...background is darker and letters/street names are crisp/sharp.
