Principle of Operation
WARNING   WARNING:  When you are going downhill, your vehicle speed may increase above the set speed. The system will not apply the brakes but a warning displays. Failure to follow this warning could result in serious personal injury or death.

 The system allows you to set a speed to which your vehicle becomes limited. The set speed sets the effective maximum speed of your vehicle. You can temporarily exceed the set speed if required, for example to overtake.
Using the Speed Limiter
Note:   If you briefly press the accelerator, for example when overtaking another vehicle, the system temporarily turns off.
The system is operated by the controls mounted on the steering wheel.
Using the Speed Limiter
Switching the System On and Off
Press LIM to set the limiter in standby mode. The information display prompts you to set a speed. Press LIM again to switch the system off.
Setting the Speed Limit
Press SET+ or SET- with the limiter in standby mode to set the limiter to the current vehicle speed. The set speed is stored and appears in the information display.
Press SET+ or SET- to select your desired speed limit. The set speed is stored and appears in the information display.
Press CAN to cancel the limiter and place it in standby mode. The information display confirms the system is in standby mode by displaying the set speed limit as crossed out.
Press RES to resume the limiter. The information display confirms this is on by showing the set speed again.
Intentionally Exceeding the Speed Limiter Set Speed
Firmly depress the accelerator pedal to temporarily switch the system off. The speed limiter set speed resumes when your vehicle speed drops below the set speed limit.
System Warnings
If you accidently exceed the set speed, the set speed indicator in the information display flashes and a tone sounds.
If you intentionally exceed the set speed, a warning appears in the information display.
Using the Intelligent Speed Limiter (If Equipped)
WARNING   WARNING:  You are responsible for controlling your vehicle at all times. The system is designed to be an aid and does not relieve you of your responsibility to drive with due care and attention. Failure to follow this instruction could result in the loss of control of your vehicle, personal injury or death.

Note:   When driving between countries that use different units of measure (miles per hour or kilometers per hour), there may be a delay before the system changes between speed limit units. During this time, the display screen for the speed limiter may differ from the actual posted speed limit. For best performance, make sure that the navigation SD card is in the navigation media port.
The system allows you to automatically limit your vehicle speed to the speed limit that is detected by the Traffic Sign Recognition system.
You can change the speed limiter mode between manual and intelligent in the information display.   See   General Information
You can select a permanent set speed tolerance that is in addition to the detected speed limit through the tolerance menu in the information display.   See   General Information
Switching the System On and Off
Press LIM CNCL/OFF to set the limiter in standby mode. The information display prompts you to set a speed or show the detected speed limit as the set speed. The system does not limit the vehicle speed in standby mode. Press LIM CNCL/OFF with the limiter in standby mode to switch the system off.
Setting the Speed Limit
  • Press RES+ with the limiter in standby mode to set the limiter to the detected speed limit.
  • Press SET- with the limiter in standby mode to set the limiter to the current vehicle speed.
  • Press RES+ or SET- to gradually change the current set speed to your desired speed limit.
  • Press LIM CNCL/OFF to cancel the limiter and place it in standby mode.
  • Press RES+ to resume the limiter.
The limit speed automatically adapts to the speed limit detected by the Traffic Sign Recognition system. The system does not react to speed limits shown with a supplementary sign by the Traffic Sign Recognition system. If there is no speed limit information available, the limiter switches to standby mode.
Intentionally Exceeding the Speed Limiter Set Speed
Firmly depress the accelerator pedal to temporarily switch the system off. The speed limiter set speed resumes when your vehicle speed drops below the set speed limit.
System Warnings
If the set speed is automatically set to a lower value than your current vehicle speed, the set speed indicator in the information display flashes and you hear an audible warning tone if you are continuously exceeding the set speed.
If you accidently exceed the set speed, the set speed indicator in the information display flashes and you hear an audible warning tone.
If you intentionally exceed the set speed, only the set speed indicator in the information display flashes.
If the Traffic Sign Recognition system detects a speed limit outside the operational speed range, you hear a single warning tone and the system switches to standby mode.
