    Can someone explain to me why RSWW is so difficult to activate on my EAP? While you're at it. What's the hold up on reading speed limit signs? Seems like pretty old tech to me.

    My suspicion is that they didn't put sensors into the car that can reliably sense rain. The current rain sensor technology uses a special IR optical system to sense wetness on the surface.

    I don't see the reason for not reading speed limit signs, that doesn't sound very hard for machine vision.

    Thanks. Agreed. I thought maybe the camera they need wasn't on yet.
