Principle of Operation


  • The system does not relieve you of your responsibility to drive with due care and attention.
  • At all times you are responsible for controlling your vehicle, supervising the system and intervening if required.
  • If the sensor becomes blocked the system may not function.

Note: In cold and severe weather conditions the system may not function. Rain, snow, spray and large contrasts in lighting can all prevent the sensor from functioning correctly.

Note: Do not carry out windshield repairs in the immediate area surrounding the sensor.

Note: If your vehicle has a suspension kit not approved by us, the system may not function correctly.

Note: Always fit Ford original parts when replacing headlamp bulbs. Other bulbs may reduce system performance.

Note: Keep the windshield free from obstructions such as bird droppings, insects and snow or ice.

Note: The system may not detect all traffic signs and may read signs incorrectly.

Note: The system is designed to automatically detect traffic signs meeting the Vienna convention.

Note: Traffic sign data provided by the navigation system contains information integrated to the data carrier release.

There is a sensor mounted behind the interior rear view mirror. It continuously monitors road signs to inform you of the current speed limit and overtaking regulations.

The system automatically detects recognisable traffic signs, such as:

  • Speed limit signs.
  • No overtaking signs.
  • Speed limit cancellation signs.

When the system recognises a traffic sign, it will be shown in the display.
