Lane Assist – Lane Keeping Assist: The front camera in the rearview mirror scans the road while the vehicle is in motion. If the lane has two-sided lines, it makes minor touches to keep the vehicle between these two lines. This system does not block the driver and the driver can change lanes at any time.

Increasing Highway Comfort Signal Count to 5: Highway comfort signal is the signal system that helps us during lane change. When you activate it by touching the signal arm without right or left, it signals 3 times and automatically shuts off. We increase this number to 5, since 3 signal times are not enough to change lane time.
Headlight Washing Time: We can adjust the headlight washing delay time and interval.
Headlight Sensor Sensitivity: The headlight sensor enables the headlights to automatically activate when the ambient light is low. When you enter the tunnel, we can adjust its sensitivity if you are not comfortable with the headlights turning on late.
