    Oh. Summon. Ho-hum!

    Thought it might be something useful - like a slew of really basic stuff eg having a speed warning proportional to the cars speed rather than just being merely additive so it works with the way speed limits are enforced in the UK (ACPO says a driver should not be prosecuted for doing up to the speed limit X 1.1 (10%) + 2 MPH). AND having a setting that allows the car to actually stick to what it believes is the speed limit is (subject to the rule above).

    The S has this enormous screen... why not use it? How much extra code would it take? If I sound a tad bitter it's because, having had no speeding tickets for 25 years, since buying the MS, I've had 2 in 6 months! Both times AP caught me out. So watch it! MW

    Yes, I think it would be much better if the overage were set as a % rather than as a fixed figure. It's very tedious constantly being told (and perhaps bonged) that you are doing 74 (assuming you've set the overage at 4 so that you don't get whacked in a 30 limit).

    Road Angel has been my friend and saviour for many years.
    I hear it will not work in the Tesla because of the protection on the EV windscreen?
    Is there a place that is not covered, on the windscreen?
    Any other ideas?
