Blind Spot Camera View Only for Lane Changes

11

Description

Only display the blindspot camera view when using the turn signal while moving. When stopped, hide the view.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

As implemented, the side pillar camera comes on with an inset video on the display when the left or right turn signal is on – if you enable this feature on new cars.

I would like yet another option to only use this option for lane changes.  For example, I don’t need it when I’m sitting at a stoplight waiting to make a turn. I find I’m almost always swiping it away.

Annoying - perhaps. I can't tell if your comment is sarcastic...

Use of turn signals are required by law, even if you are in a turn only lane, in many jurisdictions.  The California Vehicle Code, for example, does not make any exemptions for required use of turn signals in dedicated lanes:  https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/codes_displaySection.xhtml?sectionNum=22108&lawCode=VEH#:~:text=22108.,by%20the%20vehicle%20before%20turning.

Not sure why people think they need their turn signal on when you are sitting at a stop sign/light in a left/right turn lane??  Being in the turn lane should be indication enough that you are turning.  I actually don't like to see that blinking light when I'm behind someone in a turn lane - it's just annoying - turn it off - I know you are turning!!
