I find that Smartbeam works well most of the time, with the exception of windy roads as mentioned several times above.

It worked great for me until a week ago. Now the highbeams come on when a car is approaching and then they randomly go off as im driving down a dark and level road. could it be a software issue?

Mine are completely random. And I went through the menu and tried both options for the headlamps and both cause the high beams to come on whenever they feel like it, when I have the headlights set to Auto. There doesn't seem to be a solution except to turn them off Auto. If I did that I would probably forget to turn them off since I've had auto lights for the last 5 years.

Works great- both in town and out in the country/mountains, including winding roads. It seems to have peripherial vision and the red tail light sensitivity is amazing.

This is on a 2007 Overland with a clean winshield.

I have a 2005 Limited. And agree completely with this statement. I was entirely impressed with the functionality of this feature. Works well for me in all environments, windy/curvy roads included. Tail light visibility at no less than 1/3 mile will always cause dimming. I suspect that those unhappy with the performance have some sort of other contributing factors in play. Maybe thier system is misadjusted (WK Jeeps has the procedure to align the system and it is complicated to say the least), Dirty windshield, or maybe just ultra picky.

Since I bought the WK in March I have yet to get brighted by an oncoming vehichle (or one that I have passed) and have used the system at all times.

NOTE: Broken, muddy, or obstructed headlights and taillights of vehicles in the field of view will cause headlights to remain on longer (closer to the vehicle). Also, dirt, film, and other obstructions on the windshield or camera lens will cause the system to function improperly.
