Make sure the relevant safety warnings and notes have been read and understood before driving the vehicle. See DRIVING AIDS SAFETY.


The traffic sign recognition system is a driving aid only. The responsibility remains with the driver to follow the legal road speed limits.


The traffic sign recognition system default state is on and cannot be disabled.

The traffic sign recognition system uses a forward-facing camera, located in the rear-view mirror and the vehicle’s navigation map data. The camera detects speed signs, no overtaking signs, and variable overhead speed signs.

The instrument panel displays symbols of recognised traffic signs. If no speed limit signs are visible, the instrument panel displays speed limit information taken from the navigation system.

The traffic sign recognition system also allows the driver to set a speed limit alert, e.g., when the vehicle speed goes past the speed limit set by the driver.

To access the speed limit alert menu, complete the following steps:

  1. Touch the settings icon from any screen. See SYSTEM SETTINGS.

  2. Select Vehicle.

  3. Select Driver Assistance.

  4. Select Cruise and speed assistance.
