Speed limit warning

Volvo XC90. Speed limit and speed camera warnings from Road Sign Information When Speed Warning is activated, the symbol for the current speed limit in the instrument panel2 will flash temporarily if that speed is exceeded.

The driver can be alerted if the vehicle is exceeding a detected speed limit and is approaching a speed camera.

Speed Limit Warning warns the driver if the vehicle's speed has exceeded the applicable speed limit or the stored maximum speed. The warning will be repeated once after about 1 minute in that speed limit area if the driver does not slow down.

A new warning and message indicating that the speed limit has been exceeded will be provided only when the vehicle has entered a new/different speed limit area.

NOTE

For an audible alert to be provided if the speed is exceeded, the Speed Limit Warning function must be activated and the Road Sign Audio Warning sub-function must be On. Audible alerts are provided if the vehicle's speed exceeds the speed displayed by Road Sign Information in the instrument panel.

Speed camera warning

Vehicles equipped with Road Sign Information and Sensus Navigation can provide information on upcoming speed cameras in the instrument panel3.

If the vehicle exceeds a detected speed limit with the Speed Limit Warning function activated, the driver is given a speed warning when the vehicle is approaching a speed camera if the navigation map for the vehicle's current location contains information on speed cameras.

NOTE

It is possible to receive an audible alert for speed cameras regardless of the vehicle's speed and whether or not the speed limit is exceeded, even if the Road Sign Audio Warning function is deactivated.
