So here’s the thing. I have a 2019 satin steel Denali with adaptive cruise. Now when the sunlight hit, then it would just say it’s unavailable because of the sunlight hitting the camera. I understand that is a safety to say to trun off the feature because of the sunlight. Was wondering if any of you guys did some things or mods to stay on?

Its normal to happen whenever there is a lot of rain,snow or direct sunlight at the right angle. Its says it right in the manual that this can happen as it uses the camera for the adaptive cruise. No reason to go dealer there is no fix for this. Just something that will happen if the sun is at the right angle. I don't how you could mod it in anyway to make it stay on any blocking of the camera will also turn it off.

My mothers CRV does the same thing. I suspect the 18' doesn't have the proper hardware (camera quality/Type) to support the feature.

I knew that snow would/could be an issue with the camera but didn't think sun would be....learn something new everyday !

So, apparently their design criteria was for a place with no snow and no sunshine ! Humm...

All cars have this problem in direct sunlight if they are using the camera for the for adaptive cruise which i'm pretty sure they all are. the sensors come in play as you get closer to vehicle in front of you and if they are block by dirt or snow you will have the same problem.

Does your car have sensors in the front bumper?
My 2018 has sensor in the rear bumper but none in the front.
Our 2018 has something to tell us there's a car ahead and lane control??? Plus it can tell us how many seconds away the car in front of us is. It also flashes a HUD red light if we need to stop so why can't it do adaptive CC???? An "update" like android!

Ditto for my '18 Terrain. It's not like the non-HD cameras on the '18s have a crappy image. They're light years better than the camera on my wife's '13 Cadillac ATS and my one son's '15 Kia Optima.

I have 2019 Nox LT with 2FL package which gives lane keep, forward alert, pedestrian braking, following seconds. Checked with my dealer and claimed no upgrade to get adaptive. Also had them checkfor updates on the lane keep add it is terrible, stays away from the edge of the road but ignores crossing center line must times. Rented a Toyota CHR last fall for 3 weeks that had all the above and adaptive cruise. It was amazing and much needed features doing 2000 miles thru many types of European roads. We had all kinds of weather conditions and it always worked. The lane keep perhaps was more accurate due to narrower roads in Europe. Anyway wish I could get the features on the nox to be decent. Wondering if there would be a hack to take the following distance seconds and bump up/downthe cruise. But even if you did, the cruise is not aggressive enough to a
Slow down the car when going down small hills, doesn't seem to downshift until you are more than 5 mph over setting and even then takes a while.

The adaptive cruise is only camera based on the Terrain and Nox. Only the envision is radar based. But just wasn’t sure if putting like a eyebrow tint would help it
