    Is there a way to simply set the top speed without limiting acceleration? I want it for myself to avoid having the car impounded for speeding but don’t want to lose acceleration.

    Set top speed in mobile app assuming you're on 24.X

    Errr
    Hate to point out but the speed limiter isn’t based on the local speed limit.
    So setting it to limit at 70mph will still allow you to do 70 in a 25 zone.

    What about simply avoiding speeding to the extent that would cause your car to be impounded?

    I thought if you enabled it no matter how, it did the limit and chill? No?

    And, yeah, the problem is it's a global limit. Not X+local.

    I didn't realize speed limit mode also forced chill - my bad.

    I have 26.3 and it automatically turns on chill.

    As far as not speeding to the point of impoundment, that’s what I’m trying to prevent. Precisely. As you all know a quick overtake can get your speed up rapidly. I’ve caught myself once or twice at a speed I didn’t want to be at. All it takes is one error and a laser beam reading.

    I realize it’s not set to a speed limit + amount but rather a maximum speed. That’s fine. I’d like 130Km/h as the top. I don’t want to lose acceleration from 0 as a result.

    I too would like the ability to limit the extent to which the driver can exceed the speed limit. I want the car to allow 70mph in a 55mph zone, but I don’t want the car to allow more than 40mph in a 25mph zone.

    Ya I thought of that. To be honest it’s not for me. After careful consideration I’ve realized there will always be someone holding up traffic in the left lane that I’ll eventually have the opportunity to get around and I’ll take it. Pissed off too. So I’ll hit the accelerator and exceed the limit by more than I intended. I’m pretty self aware so I’m trying to take steps to avoid a hefty infraction. A small one that doesn’t require me walking home is one I can live with. Thanks for the suggestion though. While I know you thought it was a rhetorical question, and to some it would be, to me it wasn’t.
