Road Sign Information

Sign display with Road Sign Information

Updated 7/23/2018

The Road Sign Information function (Road Sign Information - RSI) registers and shows road signs in different ways depending on the sign and the situation.

Example of detected speed information

Road signs are market-dependent - illustrations in these instructions only show a few examples.

.

When RSI detects a road sign with an imposed speed limit, the driver display shows the sign as a symbol plus an indication in red on the speedometer.

Besides the speed limit symbol an additional sign may be shown as well, such as "no overtaking".

If the driver enters a road marked with a no-entry sign at the roadside, the symbol for this sign flashes on and off on the driver display as a warning.

If the car is equipped with Sensus Navigation* then information from the map is also used to determine whether the car is being driven in the wrong direction.

The driver can also get an acoustic warning when driving towards a no-entry entrance if the Audio Warning function is activated - see the heading "Activating/deactivating the acoustic warning" in the section "Activating/deactivating Road Sign Information".

End of restriction or motorway

If RSI detects a sign which may imply the end of a speed limit, such as the end of a motorway, the driver display shows the corresponding road sign for 10–30 seconds.

Examples of such signs are:

P5-1507-RSI Alla begränsningar upphör

End of all restrictions.

P5-1507-RSI Motorväg upphör

End of motorway.

Following which, the sign information is hidden until the next speed-related sign is detected.

Additional signs

Examples of additional signs

.

Sometimes different speed limits are signed 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.

If the car has a trailer attached and you pass a speed sign with the additional sign “trailer”, the indicated speed will appear on the driver display.

P5-1507-RSI Hastighet begränsad sträcka/tid på dygnet

Some speed limits only apply after a certain distance or at a certain time of day. The driver's attention is drawn to this fact by means of a symbol for an additional sign below the speed symbol. The additional symbol in the driver display will show either “DIST” or “TIME”.

P5-1507-RSI Hastighet m Tilläggstavla utan innehåll

A symbol for additional sign in the form of an empty frame under the driver display's speed symbol means that the RSI has detected an additional sign with supplementary information for the current speed limit.

Sensus Navigation

If the car is equipped with Sensus Navigation, speed information is read from the navigation unit in the following cases:

  • On detecting signs that indirectly indicate a speed limit, such as motorway, dual carriageway and city limit signs.
  • If a previously detected sign is assumed not to apply any longer, but no new sign has been detected.

Note

If a downloaded third-party app is used for navigation then there is no support for speed-related information.
