    Since the speed limit is missing or incorrect in so many areas, I wish there was some way to completely disable the speed limit feature.

    Incorrect speed limits are a safety problem. If you enable TACC in an area with an incorrectly high speed limit, you could drive much faster than is safe on some roads - one of our nearby surface streets has a 40MPH limit and the Tesla database is showing 55MPH, so TACC tries to set speed to 60MPH.

    And when AutoSteer is enabled, if the speed limit database has an incorrectly low speed limit, it will quickly brake to bring the speed down. On a nearby highway with a 65MPH speed limit, it believes the speed limit is 45MPH and slows down to 50MPH unexpectedly - hopefully the cars behind are paying attention...

    Until they can get the database fixed - would be better to give us the ability to completely ignore the speed limit database.

    In my case when I switched to MPH, the 45 MPH sign was displayed as 21 MPH. Totally weird.

    It hasn't been corrected in Australia. 80km/hr signs are read as 30km/hr signs.
    It's been like that since day 1
    Frequent requests to Tesla to fix it.
    Nothing has changed.
