Warning for speed limit

P5-1519-Road Sign Information, 90 km/h symbol

The speed warning is given by the driver display symbol2 showing the applicable maximum permitted speed temporarily flashing when this speed is exceeded.

A speed warning is always given if the speed limit is exceeded in connection with speed camera information.

Speed Limit Warning warns the driver when the applicable speed limit or stored maximum speed is exceeded – this warning is repeated once after approx. 30 seconds within the same speed limit area unless the driver reduces the speed.

Another warning is available only when the driver has reduced the speed by at least 5 km/h (3 mph) and then exceeds the speed limit again, or when the car reaches a new/different speed limit area.


To get an acoustic warning if you exceed the required speed, the Speed Limit Warning function must be activated and the Road Sign Audio Warning subfunction must be set to On. An acoustic warning is then given if the car's speed exceeds the speed indicated by the Road Sign Information function in the driver display.

Warning for speed camera

P5-1519-Road Sign information, speed camera warning

A car equipped with road sign information and Sensus Navigation can provide information on an upcoming speed camera in the driver display3.

If the car exceeds a detected speed limit with the Speed Limit Warning function activated, a speed warning is given when the car approaches a speed camera, provided that the navigation map for the area in question contains information on speed cameras.


An option is available to receive an acoustic warning for speed cameras independently of the car's speed and exceeded speed limit, even if the Road Sign Audio Warning function is deactivated.
