My auto high beams have come on 1 single time since I purchased the truck, and was in the middle of a lit area during sunset.Heading out now. 😬 I could not find a video how how to mount the device so it dose not block the auto high-beams. I love that feature, do not want to loose it.
mine work really well. they can even tell the difference (most of the time) between road markers and tail lights.My auto high beams have come on 1 single time since I purchased the truck, and was in the middle of a lit area during sunset.
I like the 15 second self steering feature when it works, but what I don't like:Those who like the 15 second self steering feature (Lane keeping assist) will love it.
I like the 15 second self steering feature when it works, but what I don't like:
I made some impressive sweeping turns. But they had to be very sweeping.
- It often "pulls" to the left and then I get a LKAS warning. Not always, and when it does, 80% of the time it's to the left.
- It can only handle the mildest of turns
- The 15 seconds part
The 15 seconds is gone. On my trips cross country, before the comma, two years ago, I made 2 minutes on a dead straight road but the truck tricked itself into thinking I had moved the wheel. It would do that shake to alert you to steer, but it would sometimes reset itself.
I don't want the truck to make decisions about changing lanes for me. But I would like it to keep itself in its lane and adjust following distance.
it does not make the decision, you make that choice, you must turn on the signal and tug on the wheel for it to change lanes. I think you can just change lanes normally, but I didn't even try it.
Is the ACC's very sluggish acceleration and sometimes harsh braking improved with this?
The acceleration was not improved but I don't know who the braking. I was mostly on the highway.
I am super interested in your experiment
okIt seems like a cool piece of tech, but at the end of the day, what's the point? I mean if you can't close your eyes and go to sleep, and you have to look straight ahead you might as well be driving. Right? Not to mention where do you put your hands on long trips that's not on the wheel and is comfortable all while never looking away from the road?'
I'm all for self driving cars, and if I could ever sleep on the way into work that would be a huge win, but I don't see that happening in the next 20 years at least, and I'm not working that long.
Yes, I am going to try that. I double checked it this morning and it would engage when I covered the screen and might last more then one on off cycle...seemed random before I had to cover it up again.I'm assuming the light from the screen coming up from under the sensor, Why not build a little shield on top of the screen, like a sun visor (baseball cap style). you could just cut out a piece of black(ish) cardboard to test the theory, and if that works search for a black plastic guard that will fit.
