What if your 2012 Nav does not support Eco Mode. I have read that your nav unit needs to be built later than June '12 to have Eco Mode. Can the Nav unit be retrofit'd to include the Eco Mode option?

We are able to code the 2011 nav unit to have the Eco pro functions, I just can't get the car to engage Eco pro mode.

Andreo,

Here are some pics of the red line between the speed limit and actual speed. I also took some more of the phone list and music list. Sorry about the flash, had no clue it was on.

Very cool. And I think I can forgive the glare and off center shot since you were going 87 mph; 2 mph less and it would be unacceptable!

Thanks djsaad1. That's helpful. I suppose these red lines appear only when speed limits are detected (which unfortunately is not supported in my region). What about self-imposed limits set using the LIM button on the steering wheel? Do you have that function on your vehicle?

BTW, how you even managed to capture a shot at 87mph remains a wonder. Drive safe.

We don't have that as far as I know. Will you post a pic of your steering wheel and describe what the button does?

We can set a limit where there's a gong if you hit it. I have to turn it off whenever my mom's in the car because she takes it as a sign of imminent death and apocalyptic events.

You can code LIM onto a U.S car, I just haven't done it. I will code it this weekend and let you know how the 6wb reacts.

Here is a good description of what LIM does.

The LIM button can be found on the left side of the steering wheel. When you press the button, it captures the current speed or 30km/h (whichever higher) and sets it as the ceiling speed of your throttle. The LIM light turns on, the captured speed is briefly displayed at the bottom part of the speedometer and a green dot appears on the outer part of the speedometer ring (you can spot it in the photo at the 54 km/h and 30 km/h mark but it's quite faint). Once set, you can use the left jog dial to adjust the ceiling. Gently tap up or down to adjust by 1 km/h increment or decrement. Push dial past resistance point to adjust to the next 10km/h up or down.

So for example, if your speed is set at 88km/h, you can accelerate until the speed reaches 88 km/h and the car maintains speed at 88 km/h, even when the pedal is still depressed. If you depress the pedal a little more or kick it down, the speed ceiling will temporarily be disabled and you can speed up. This is necessary in case of emergencies.

I am hoping that the 6WB display will show the actual ceiling speed on the speedometer ring instead of a nondescript green dot which is quite hard to spot especially when you are traveling at "optimum" ticket-free speeds.

Similarly, what does 6WB show for Cruise Control setting on outside dial?

Does it just have a mark (dot) or the actual Speed Setting?

+1. Cruise control shows as an orange dot in the standard instrument cluster.

There are some green speed markings in the OP's pics. I wonder whether those are speed limits from Cruise Control or LIM. Any opinions?

Then what is the 72 showing on the dial in both Orange and Green here:

Is that not the actual Cruise Control Speed?

Maybe only in Sport Mode it appears, and in Comfort or EcoPro, you get only the dial indicator without the actual Speed setting?

Ok so when in comfort mode, it's a green arrow no speed. It shows the cruise control speed at the bottom (where the green car is in the pic) for a few seconds but then disappears. Although in all modes the cruise control speed is on the HUD.

In sport mode the arrow is still there but also shows the speed, again the speed is also on the HUD. I will try to code LIM today and test out how it shows it.

Thanks for tetsing. So, it is exactly as I said it was. I wish they would have made it so the CC Speed showed in all FDS Modes though.

I will look through the DKOMBI module to see if I can find anything that would keep the speed on in all modes. Although if you have HUD, then it really doesn't matter.
