Speed limiter

theres a 30 mph speed camera on my way to work- I always set the limiter to 30 well ahead of it. Noticed a few times a mile of two after I'd set it it had changed to 33 on the limiter. Watched it like a hawk today- and as soon as o reached the speed camera the speed limiter changed to 33. What's that all about?

It'll be a little known feature I'd bet money on it!

It's probably only available if you have Sync3... 

I've never actually used speed limiter - I find that my fuel consumption limits my speed!

I've only used the speed limiter in 50mph roadworks where it worked fine. In the manual it states the following for both normal and adaptive cruise:-

You can select a permanent set speed tolerance that is in addition to the detected speed limit through the tolerance menu in the information display. See  General Information

I just checked mine (adaptive cruise) and its set to manual and the tolerance is 0 mph. Might be worth checking yours to see if you have different tolerance

Use the limiter all the time set to 0 over-limit, great for 50 limits on motorways, etc. especially combined with the adaptive cruise control distance monitor.

I DON'T use the road sign limiter anymore, since I almost got rear-ended after it saw a side road with a 20 limit whilst doing 60ish on an unlimited road. The car cut the power and I'm convinced it applied some brake too ... Don't think the car up my boot saw the funny side either ! :ohmy:

Funnily enough exactly the same thing happened to me this morning-,it spotted a side road with a 20 limit- luckily no one behind me. Didn't feel like it breaked though- thought I'd run out petrol! It's a shame because in principal it's a cracking system and allows you to be less focused on your speedo.
