Peugeot 2008. Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation

Peugeot 2008. Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation The units for the speed limit (mph or km/h) depend on the country you are driving in.

This should be taken into account so that you observe the speed limit.

For the system to operate correctly when you change country, the units for speed in the instrument panel must be those for the country you are driving in.

Peugeot 2008. Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation The automatic reading of road signs is a driving aid system and does not always display speed limits correctly.

The speed limit signs present on the road always take priority over the display by the system.

The system is designed to detect signs that conform to the Vienna Convention on road signs.

Peugeot 2008. Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation Specific speed limits, such as those for heavy goods vehicles, are not displayed.

The display of the speed limit in the instrument panel is updated as you pass a speed limit sign intended for cars (light vehicles).

Activation / Deactivation

By default, the system is automatically activated at every engine start.

Peugeot 2008. Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation It is set via the Driving  / Vehicle touch screen menu.

Peugeot 2008. Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation

On detecting speed limit information, the system displays the value.

Peugeot 2008. Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation

In the case of suggested maximum speeds, the first time the vehicle exceeds the suggested speed by more than 3 mph (5  km/h) (e.g. 59 mph (95  km/h)), the speed is displayed flashing for 10 seconds.

Operating limits

The system does not take account of reduced speed limits, especially those imposed in the following cases:

  • Atmospheric pollution.
  • Towing.
  • Driving with a space-saver type spare wheel or snow chains fitted.
  • Tyre repaired using the temporary puncture repair kit.
  • Young drivers.

The system may not display the speed limit if it does not detect a speed limit sign within a preset period and in the following situations:

  • Road signs that are obstructed, non-standard, damaged or bent.
  • Obsolete or incorrect maps.

Recommendation

Peugeot 2008. Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation

In addition to Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation, the driver can select the speed displayed as a speed setting for the speed limiter or cruise control using the speed limiter or cruise control memorisation button.

If rain is detected, the system will propose to the driver a speed setting lower than the speed read/obtained from the mapping in order to adapt to the weather conditions (example: on a motorway, the proposed speed will be 68  mph (110  km/h) instead of 81  mph (130  km/h).

Peugeot 2008. Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation For more information on the Speed limiter, Cruise control or Adaptive cruise control, refer to the corresponding sections.
