Repeater camera feeds are mostly useless when turn signal is on at night

Does anyone else get a lot of glare on the left and right repeater feeds when the turn signal on that side is on, and you’re driving in the dark? For me, the turn signal directly above the camera casts an orange glare over the entire top half of the video. The housings don’t seem to be loose or anything.

I’m wondering if this issue is caused by the chrome housing. If any of you has a chance to test it out, along with your results let me know if your vehicle has chrome or black trim. I’ll try covering the housings with tape when I have time to retest.

Chrome delete on mine and it's still an issue.

I see that too, I have chrome.

In a way there is an advantage to seeing the state of the turn signal -- it is proof you had it on if you have an accident and there is any question about that.

But it would be better if it didn't block out so much of the image.
