Hey I've only just discovered this!

I knew that when you pressed + or - when using cruise that the speed changed by 5mph. In fact my favourite game is hitting the exact speed I want (e.g. at exactly at 10 or 5mph) when pressing set so that I only get 1 red light on the speedo ... What? That's not sad!


But my game is ruined. I discovered today that by repeatedly pressing RES or SET the speed can be increased or decreased by 1mph increments.

You all knew that, right? :mrgreen:

Absolutely - read the manual and it's all in there. Played with cruise and it works just as you have described. Means my right foot now doesn't go to sleep on a long drive

Wurz, whats the red light you mention on the speedo? On my recent trip to the Run To The Sun event, I travelled down from the Midalnds to Newquay and my cruise went off by itself and the only way it came back on was for me to pull over at some services and turn the ignition off and then re start, it was fine after that.

Well, first of all I'd like to ask why on earth you didn't call in for a cup of tea as you journeyed through that well-known corridor-to-Devon-and-Cornwall that is Somerset?


The little red light I'm referring to is the one that comes on, when you set the cruise, around the rim of the speedo at the chosen speed. If you set the speed dead on the tick at say 50 or 55 you just get one light on the rim - corresponding with the speed and all is good in the obsessive world of Wurzel. If, however, you set the speed at say 42 you get two lights: one on the 40 tick and one on the 45 tick. Conversely, this two-light state of affairs sets off my nervous twitch.

Welcome to my world. :roll:

Didn't have the red lights in the previous treg. Played with it today, didn't know what you meant, until I read your post.
Set it at 56 mph, therefore 2 red lights

Aaaaaahhhhhh!!!! I can't stop doing it now. :roll:

Almost drifted in to the central res trying to get bang on 70mph but had to fine tune with the SET /RES to get the second light off.

One post I wish I had not read.

Thanks Wurzel

My +- [on a 53] only does 1 mph per press.

Hi
All the more reason for the road speed in the MFD to be capable of been altered from kl/hr to mph.
By the way Staffs, I am just down the road in Stafford.
