      First My New V60 issue - auto high beams are nuts!

      I *love* the car so far, just got it tonight, but my 2016 V60 has insane headlights. I had to turn the auto high beam feature off because it seems to pick up random stuff in my pitch dark neighborhood and turn them off at inopportune times. Maybe it sees the parked cars? Is there a cure for this?

      I drive a 2018 S60 and have experienced something similar with auto high beams turning off every time I entered a small town where there was some lightning.

      I guess the system mistook total darkness to a lit area as another car but the auto high beam allowed me to see a deer on the side of the road about ready to cross that I would never have seen with low beams.

      This gave me time to slow down in advance.

      I was turning into a pitch-black corner when it suddenly decided to switch to low, which was not a happy surprise. It seems to pick up the red reflectors on mailboxes as cars ahead of me, not to mention actual cars on the side of the road.

      Check with the dealer for software updates. I have noticed that it changes the behaviour significantly.

      Around a neighbourhood, it's going to flicker a lot as it picks up lights and reflectors. It works much more effectively out on a road. It tends to be conservative - better off than dazzling a driver.
