    Must have missed it the first time it was posted. Very good feature but I have to ask...wouldnt it have been easier to fit a GPS system that could identify the speed limit?????

    possibly, but gps need updating whenever they decide to change the limit, if it reads the signs on the roadside, it will never need to be updated

    A minefield IMO given the fact that some of the speed limit signs are tiny and what about urban areas or as in Liverpool where urban dual carriageways have been changed from 40mph to 30mph without new signage. I wouldn't depend on it. A potential triumph of theory over practicality.
