Road Sign Information (RSI)* - operation
When RSI has recorded a road sign with an imposed speed, the combined instrument panel displays the sign as a symbol.
Together with the symbol for the current speed limit, a sign2 showing that overtaking is prohibited may also be displayed where appropriate.
End of speed limit or motorway
When RSI detects an "indirect speed sign" that means end of current speed limit - e.g. at end of motorway - a symbol with the corresponding road sign is shown in the combined instrument panel.
Examples of indirect speed sign2 are:
End of all restrictions.
End of motorway.
The symbol in the combined instrument panel extinguishes after 10-30 seconds and remains extinguished until the next speed-related sign is passed.
Changed speed limit
On passing a direct speed sign when the speed limit changes, a symbol with the corresponding road sign is shown in the combined instrument panel.
Example of a direct speed sign2.
The symbol in the combined instrument panel extinguishes after approx. 5 minutes and remains extinguished until the next speed-related sign is passed.
- On detection of signs that indirectly indicate a speed limit, such as motorway, dual carriageway and city limit signs.
- If a previously detected speed sign is assumed not to apply any longer, but no new sign has been detected.
Sometimes different speed limits are signposted for the same road - an additional sign then indicates the circumstances under which the different speeds apply. The road section may be particularly susceptible to accidents in rain and/or fog, for example.
An additional sign relating to rain is displayed only if the windscreen wipers are in use.
The speed applicable on an exit is indicated in certain markets by means of an additional sign containing an arrow.
Speed signs linked to this type of additional sign are displayed only if the driver is using the direction indicator.
Some speeds are applicable only after e.g. a specific distance or at a certain time of day. The driver's attention is drawn to the situation by means of a symbol for an additional sign under the symbol showing speed.
A symbol for additional sign in the form of an empty frame under the combined instrument panel's speed symbol2 means that RSI has detected an additional sign with supplementary information for the current speed limit.
Speed Alert On/Off
The Speed Limit Warning subfunction for RSI is selectable - the driver can select On or Off.
The speed warning is given in the form of the combined instrument panel's symbol2 for maximum permitted speed temporarily flashing when the speed is exceeded by 5 km/h (5 mph) or more.
- Search and locate the function in the menu system MY CAR, see MY CAR.
- Highlight Speed alert by pressing the OK/MENU button once and go back out with EXIT.
