What is the BMW Speed Warning? How to Active/Deactive?

BMW Speed Warning is a new technology applied on recently produced BMW cars. The purpose of the BMW Speed ​​Warning function is to ensure maximum safety for users during driving. So how to activate or remove this feature? Experts from Eurocartool will give you detailed instructions in the article below.

What is the BMW Speed Warning?

The speed limit warning light on BMW vehicles is often called “Speed ​​Limit Warning” or “Speed ​​Limit Display”. This function informs you about the current speed limit on the road you are driving on. Information about speed limits is displayed on the central multi-information screen or on the Head-Up Display within the driver’s field of vision.
When you drive over the limit, the warning light will change color or display an icon to indicate whether you are exceeding the speed limit. This function helps drivers be more aware of speed limits and enhances traffic safety.

This new technology will be very useful for those who often drive over the speed limit without paying attention. This helps ensure more traffic safety as well as not being stopped by traffic police on the road.

Instructions for activating/deactivating BMW Speed Warning

To adjust the Speed ​​Limit Warning feature on your BMW, follow these general steps:
