BMW 5 Series: Speed Limit Info

Speed Limit Info

Concept

Speed Limit Info shows the current valid maximum speed in the instrument cluster.

General information

The camera in the area of the interior mirror detects traffic signs at the edge of the road as well as variable overhead sign posts.

Traffic signs with extra symbols are considered and compared with the vehicle's onboard data.

The traffic sign will then be either displayed or ignored depending on the situation in the instrument cluster and the Head-up Display.

With the navigation system, the system takes into account the information stored in the navigation data and also displays speed limits present on routes without signs.

Safety information

Warning
