TRAFFIC SIGN RECOGNITION

WARNING

Make sure the relevant safety warnings have been read and understood before driving the vehicle. See DRIVING AIDS SAFETY.

The traffic sign recognition system uses a forward-facing camera, located in the rear-view mirror. The camera detects speed signs, no overtaking signs, and variable overhead speed signs.

The instrument panel displays symbols of recognised traffic signs. If no speed limit signs are detected, the instrument panel displays speed limit information taken from the navigation system.

The traffic sign recognition system is also able to detect traffic signs containing additional information. For example, the system is able to detect if a reduced speed limit is in place for wet conditions, and the wipers are switched on. In this instance, the reduced speed limit is displayed in the instrument panel.

NOTES

A reduced speed limit is also displayed if an approved Jaguar Land Rover trailer socket is connected to the vehicle.

The traffic sign recognition system switches on automatically when the vehicle's electrical system is switched on. The system can also be switched on and off via the Driver assistance instrument panel menu. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.

The traffic sign recognition system can also be adjusted via the Driver assistance instrument panel menu. Three levels of speed alert can be set, as follows:

  • When the vehicle’s speed is above the detected speed limit.

  • When the vehicle’s speed is either 10 km/h or 5 mph above the detected speed limit.

  • When the vehicle’s speed is either 20 km/h or 10 mph above the detected speed limit.
