We should really be doing that anyway so it's teaching us to drive properly like we did when we took our driving test ! We do become lazy and don't bother but since owning my T roc i've started to indicate more and the braking speed limit bleep keeps me in check too .

Can I ask why anyone would want to turn off that little compass indicator in the top left of their screen ? It's barely even noticeable !

Agreed, I had forgotten I even had it 🤷‍♂️😂

Two things I don't like are start/stop and lane assist.
Start/stop is seamless but I think it would be sore on a car.

Lane assist is OK but I just don't like the way it constantly adjusts the steering wheel even though I'm in full control 🤷‍♂️

The thing that really infuriates me is you're driving along, then suddenly the car says "TAKE OVER STEERING" like who the he11 dies it think has been driving the car?

I wonder has anyone tested it to the limit 🤔🤷‍♂️

I held out touching the wheel for 3 alerts before aborting, as well as sound alerts & dash messages the car starts to pump the brakes a few times.

I'm guessing it finally does an emergency stop 🤔🙈

Tricky I think you must have a problem if yours tells you to take over steering when you have your hands on the wheel ! Mine has only done this after a few seconds of not holding the wheel !

I was a bit undecided about the usefulness of lane assist, but having just come back from holiday, which needed many hours of motorway driving, I'm now converted. I think it's really good. It's just there as a safety net, and it also makes you indicate whenever you change lane. I found it correcting me a few times. It has never done it incorrectly.
Not sure on the "rules" when it switches itself off. It only seems to work above a certain speed, and it also becomes inactive when you get the "car in front" proximity warning.

I think it because i'm either very light on the steering or i'm following the same route it would so thinks it's in control.
