Is it possible to have the respective side mirror (edit: side mirror camera) turn on with the turn signal? '22 Laramie w/8.4 non-nav and 360 cameras

no setting. that a was a capability change for the '19 models and up to where the mirror light was both a turn signal as well as marker.

I'm an idiot. That first post didn't say what I wanted it to. Edited for clarity. I'm taking about the camera. I'd like the camera to turn on when I have the turn signal on. Sorry bout that

We used the NAViKS box to enable cameras in motion, including (if enabled) the side cameras with turn signals (hated it), and NAV in motion.

It takes a man-in-the-middle hack to do this.

With the UC5 changes in 22, not sure if/when we'll see an update from them. They have to get their hands on a 22 to work it out.

What didn't you like about having the camera come on with the turn signals and can you turn off that feature? I have the Naviks box but haven't installed it yet.

It simulates button presses and is a bit annoying when it activates, also slow.

Currently mine enables that feature all on its own randomly. Super annoying. I disable it and it flips me the bird whenever it feels.

Do you regret installing the Naviks or are the other features still worth it? I mostly got it to allow it to keep the camera on and I seldom use the center buttons on the back of the steering wheel.

The always on camera is worth it. I don't really use the truck NAV much and almost always it's just to see the map full screen.

I just sent them an email actually asking when and if they had any plans on a kit for the 2022's. I offered to help test a kit once it was available also since my truck will be picked up next weekend.
