I couldn't agree more Twist but do you not find that around roadworks you wouldn't usually be doing more than the 37 mph to make the lane assist operate , I'me not criticising just thinking is it not worth turning it off .

it’s a small
graphic top left above left dial next to the speed limit sign.
Car is a 2021 build so might be different to others.
No, the first T-roc's & onwards have the compass you refer to & it's barely noticeable.
It could probably be coded out permanently I'd say 😉👌

I don’t get the compass display. Do you only get it if you have factory sat nav?

True, but if you have cruise engaged at the same time then Lane Assist operates in conjunction from 0 mph upwards. If you are not using cruise then agreed, Lane Assist doesn't cut in until circa 37mph (bit like High Beam Assist).

Still all dependent of course of picking up an edge and centre to the road.

I leave mine switched on all the time, as has been said earlier a good safety feature for bringing the car to a halt safely if something happens (and it does work as I tried it down a quiet country road)

If you have a heart attack at the wheel, the car will steer for you and stop safely rather than potentially swerving into another lane.
As long as you don't take a heart attack on a corner 🙈🤷‍♂️

On DSG models (possibly manual too, can’t confirm) with Traffic Jam Assist it works at any speed as long as ACC is on.

Also there are sometimes contraflow roadworks on the M8 with a speed limit of 50. The cones are placed wide enough to do 50mph but with the crossing lane markings, the steering wheel goes crazy. I believe there’s actually a bit in the owner’s manual that specifically tells you to turn it off in road works.

I'd say you're probably correct 👌

When browsing the cars dashboard module there is a tab for nav compass on/off.(when coding)
Also owners who code in the off road display on the infotainment system won't have the compass, because there is no Nav 👌

I didn't know that Twist but have since tried it with the ACC on and you are correct it does work from 0 mph , In Norfolk we very rarely travel above 37 mph anyway so the lane assist at roadworks contraflows doesn't really cause a problem to us , LOL .

The T-Roc Lane Assist is a good safety feature. Just remember to indicate when changing lanes.
