Specification query
« on: May 07, 2020, 03:09:28 PM »
My 30-something daughter is interested in a 2018 or 2019 Jazz auto,  she particularly liked the road sign recognition feature.  Is it standard on any model or only an "extra" .  Would she have to buy an "EX" model or would "SE" have this feature? If the SE has road sign recognition,  what extras does EX have over SE?

Traffic sign recognition is on the SE.
Ex has keyless entry
Auto Aircon
Front fog lights
Rear privacy glass
16 inch alloys
Parking camera
and some more bits and pieces.

Don't want to piss on her chips, but I have had this on a few cars now and for me it really is the definition of a pointless gadget. And I love me gadgets. All I am saying is don't overspend on a car to just to get this one feature.

I find it to be an 80% useful feature. Sometimes I'm not sure what the current speed limit is and can check what sign the car last saw (as long as it wasn't too long ago). However, I've deducted 20% from the score because it sometimes gets confused, such as by reading a speed limit sign when driving past an exit to a roundabout.

Overall, I think the SE is the spec which provides the best balance between features and cost.

I find on my Jazz, that while the Speed Limit sign reconigition works in most of the time, the road sign reconigition feature has only functioned once since I purchased the car in September.

If you can see street lights, itís 30mph unless there are repeaters telling you otherwise. If youíre on a motorway, itís 70mph unless restrictions are in place or a smart motorway. Pretty much everywhere else itís 60mph unless there are repeaters. Iím sure someone will correct me.

99% of the time it picks up speed limit signs but the only other sign mine has picked up (over two cars in 4 years) is the no overtaking sign.

I agree John.  There are more and more 40 and 50 limits in my area and it is easy to lose track.

There are limitation to the system as John indicates.  It is also susceptible to sunlight conditions.


If you are considering using it in conjunction with the intelligent speed limiter, you may like to search the forum as there are numerous points of view on that.  But to summarise, it is an aid to driving and not a replacement.  Ultimately it is your responsibility to drive within the law as any magistrate will be quick to tell you.

The same for me.
