Its got a speed limiter too but I use it less often. Good if you'd only rarely reach full speed, accelerating away then it suddenly dies. Not sure though if it goes further over the set limit than cruise though - by the time it cuts acceleration you'll already have some momentum... So I use cruise or me foot

Cruise is good because you naturally slow down on a hill or a corner whereas cc will just keep going. You can tell following other cars as your speed doesn't waver and suddenly they die and then its out with the flashers

I assume my cc is the actual speed whereas the speedo is always 5mph over - which is alot when it says you're doing 30 but cc says its only 25. I'm pretty sure the cc isn't linked to gps however and haven't tried another gps system. Would assume though that shows true speed as well.

Currently in bpowell555's garage:
2002 Renault Laguna II 2.2dCi Initiale, 1990 E30 325i Touring (Bavarian Tigzwerken Express)
