    Rearview Camera Nightmode

    Does anyone find the rearview camera useless at night with minimal lighting? Is there a setting I'm supposed to change. Failing this I was thinking of installing a discrete rear light under the bumper.

    It does but I've recently driven other cars and realised we dont have a true IR camera which gives much better night vision. You know when the camera view is that weird grey or green colour at night and animal eyes glow

    agreed - it's not great at night. i've tinted my tail lights so it's even less useful.

    that being said, if you turn on your rear 'fogs' it does help somewhat.

    Doesn’t the reverse lights light up the area behind you?

    Maybe those of us with an issue with it, came from cars with larger reverse lights.

    Compared to most cars, the ones on the tig are quite small.

    Yeah its not great, I live rurally and often the only source of light are the reverse lights unless you have an IR camera. I am gonna get a discrete LED lightbar put in.
