Speed Limit Display

Does anyone know if this can be installed retrospectively? I don’t have it on my dash, just on the sat nav screen and it’s annoying me cos I cannot see it in my eye line. Thanks!!
 
I am also looking to get power steering plus installed but I don’t think this is available yet for a 992. Anyone know differently? Thank you.

Hi Mark,
 
Power Steering Plus is an option available on the 992 configurator. However, I was told by a couple of OPC's that it's an option that's not really necessary and standard Power Steering is good enough.  When driving their 992 C4S demonstrator I found the standard steering fine also. Why do you feel you need it, does the standard system feel particularly heavy to you?

yes. I got a cancelled order car so never got the chance to spec from factory. I had PSP on my 718 and loved how light it was.

Right I see.  Not sure about retro fitting Speed Limit Display.  With BMW there are apps like Bimmercode that allow you to unlock hidden options that are already there but just not switched on by the manufacturer. Not sure if anything like this is available for Porsche.

PSP can certainly be added after delivery. For what it's worth I am looking to remove it, as I prefer the original feel. I don't think speed limit display is retrofitable - I have not seen it offered anywhere. It may be because it uses the camera above the mirror which complicates things.

I had a 2015 Panamera that I bought in 2016 and although it had a camera in the windscreen it did not have the speed limit reader you enquire about.  I made enquiries through my Porsche dealership and via the Porsche UK CEO at the time and Germany.  Answer: not possible as would interfere with various other functions/sensors so not offered.  I pointed out that on the web I had seen the same model as mine having the adaptive cruise control and speed limit fitted (that car did not have a camera in the windscreen) and the software upgraded and working.  The installer appeared to possibly be a Porsche garage but as all mechanics looked Chinese and the post was from someone in a Chinese town it may not have been an authorised Porsche garage.  If it was carried out in UK then you would forfeit the whole of your Porsche warranty!  Porsche attitude is that any non-Porsche authorised additions will forfeit their warranty, even hardwiring in a Road Angel.  So I have Waze on my 992 which works through Apple CarPlay through the PCM with your current speed as well as the speed limits displayed, cheaper than any other route as Waze is free!

Forgive my ignorance but what option provides the "Speed Limit Display". I haven't noticed it in the configurator and am busily beavering away ready for ordering when jabs received, car is delivered and likely usage starts... Thanks

It's included in the Lane Keep Assist option under the Comfort and Assistance Systems heading.

If it’s no better on the 992 than the 991 it’s not worth having in my opinion. On my car it misses as many speed limit signs as it picks up.

... whereas Waze is very good in that respect. It's open source and users with more spare time than I edit the maps. Recent 20mph limit where I live appeared in weeks.

I have the Speed Limit Display option on my 992 4S. Seems to work well - so far, at least

Re: Speed Limit Display 2021/01/14 14:31:53 (permalink)
Yes, I 've found it a very useful too, particularly nowadays when so many differing speed limits apply and I'm always amazed it manages to pick up temporary restrictions, even when signage is poor.
 
It may now be included in MY2021 cars, so worth checking with your PC (unless you're speccing Lane Keep Assist anyway - which doesn't seem to work too well). 
 
Regards,
 
Clive

I don't believe it's a standard option even on 2021 cars, as not listed as standard in my order form.  
 
I had it on my BMW M4 Comp and found it particularly useful on my trips into Europe, especially trips to the Nurburgring and back going through France, Belgium and Germany.

So I've just spoken with my dealer this morning. What you get as standard is the Speed Limit Display within the SatNav screen as the OP has.  If however you want Speed Limit Display in the binnacle view, then you must tick the 'Lane Keep Assist' option with Speed Limit Display.  The latter also picks up variable speed limits etc because of the built in camera.

Re: Speed Limit Display 2021/01/20 15:01:30 (permalink)
I feel your pain.  I have adaptive cruise and assumed that the speed limit display would come with it.  I didn't want lane keep assist as it's not actually very good, and I like steering anyway, however for some reason only known to Porsche (and even though I have all the hardware) I can't get the speed limit in the display because I don't have the lane keep assist option....  
 
If you order the InnoDrive option it's all included in one package.  Something to add to my next 911.

Speed Limit Display was available as a stand alone option on 991 and I found it very useful indeed.
On 992 it has to be optioned with Lane Keep Assist which is not so good.
 
LKA can be switched off leaving SLD active, but unfortunately it defaults to both on again whenever the vehicle is restarted.

This is very frustrating as it should be offered as a stand alone option and one shouldn't be forced to combine it with another.  
 
I've experienced BMW's equivalent of Lane Keep Assist on the new 3 Series and I hated it.  I felt it was actually dangerous at times and therefore don't want anything like that on any of my cars until I can help it.
