Sign recognition and maps

Recommended Posts

Hi I have recently bought a nearly new Fiesta Vignale (2020 model), and it has speed sign recognition via a camera. Mine is working only intermittently, goes for 10mins or so then it seems to stick for half hour or more then sometimes suddenly comes back to life. Think I may have to book the car into garage under warranty.  Anyone else had problems with it? Ford seem to think it should be reliable and the SYNC 3 maps on the Vignale do not show the speed limit and there is no user way of turning them on – so if the sign recognition does not work its easy to be unsure of the speed limit one is in. Any ideas? Could it be the camera at fault? Have made sure windscreen is clean. Is it possible to increase the sensitivity of the camera? This is not a user function but maybe one Ford can do. Anyone know about this?

Really appreciate any help or ideas.

Hi Graham. Assuming all necessary settings are enabled in your Drivers Information Center, your best course of action is to set up a service appointment so the issue can be properly diagnosed and corrected. There are no other owner configurable or adjustable settings.

 

Let us know how you make out and good luck.

Still have intermittent working of sign recognition. Have it booked into Ford garage for end of October. Let’s see if they can identify the problem.

BEcause we do not have that in the US, how does that work?  Do it just beep when you are going to fast?

Some US Ranger (and probably other vehicle) owners have enabled this function via forscan.  It adds settings in the Instrument Panel (IP) for how much over the limit you want a warning and then flashes on the IP.  The vehicle has to have the right hardware for it to work.
