Speed warning setting

Post by DaveA » Sat Sep 08, 2018 7:00 pm

Hi,

Has anyone found the speed warning setting in the active info display?
It has been in my previous numerous volkswagens and I'd be surprised if it is not standard on my current T-Roc?
It mentions it in the handbook but I know not everything described in the handbook is on every car.
Does anyone else have it?

On my previous Golf i was able to set my speed limit to 30mph which was shown on the instrument cluster.
When reaching this speed a loud bong was heard, which was very useful as I live in area which has several
speed camera,s which are active. I cannot seem to do this on my T-ROC 1.5 TSI EVO SE DSG. Can anyone
help. Secondly I note that’s lots of people are frustrated at having to wait for their ROCs, but having had many cars
over the years if you can wait, in my opinion it is the DBs

Hi DaveA, we exchanged our Golf because my wife felt very low driving it. Our dealer had a white/black roof in,
so I presume it was a stock car? It felt very tight and stiff for the first few weeks , but now done 1300 miles
and it is a dream to drive especially with the 1.5 DSG, and my wife can slide in and out of the driving seat.
So now all quiet on that front. I wish you could tell me how you achieved your 20mph bong as I feel I could
increase this to 30mph which would make me feel that I would not want to exchange in 3yrs time. Its that good.
Ijak.

Hi MVP, got mixed up with usernames. Please read reply to DaveA.
If you sort out the 20mph bong I would be very grateful if you could
tell me how to do this. Ijak.

I've no idea what anyone is talking about :-D
Speed warning setting? Maybe that's just on specs with sat nav (i don't have). I use android auto and Waze bips you if you go over the speed limit, whatever that limit might be. If it's not part of your sat nav, then I've no idea what it is.

.......and then use the switches on the steering wheel's RHS switch bank. If you are on the 20mph setting as displayed on the LED display between the analogue speedometer & rev counter, then press the OK button, then up/down buttons to toggle though the speed setting in 5mph steps then OK again to 'set' your choice. I have mine set for 30mph for local driving, 70mph for motorways and 40mph for urban areas etc.

The up/down buttons can also be used to view various modes of information by toggling through them i.e. digital speedometer (my default setting) > period of driving (starts at 0 minutes and advances during each stop-start driving period) > distance travelled miles (starts at 0 miles and advances during driving sessions) > average speed > average fuel consumption mpg etc.

I'm not near my car at present so can't check exact order. However I find exploration of the features quite satisfying :geek:
