BMW 7 Series: Speed Limit Assist

Concept

When the systems in the vehicle, e.g., Speed Limit Info, detect a change of the speed limit along the route, this new speed value can be applied for the following systems:

  • Speed Limiter.
  • Cruise control.
  • Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go function ACC.

The speed value is suggested as the new desired speed to be applied. To apply the speed value, the corresponding system must be activated.

Safety information

Warning


The system cannot serve as a substitute for the driver's personal judgment in assessing the traffic conditions. Based on the limits of the system, it cannot independently react to all traffic situations. There is a risk of accident. Adjust driving style to traffic conditions. Watch traffic closely and actively intervene where appropriate.

Warning


The desired speed can be incorrectly adjusted or called up by mistake. There is a risk of accident.
