2014 Chevrolet Corvette: Speed Limit Display

March 17, 2014

2014 Chevrolet Corvette

When you're driving a car that gathers speed and cruises as effortlessly as the Corvette, having a speed limit reminder is certainly a welcome feature.

Cruising along on an unfamiliar stretch of wide-open highway, for example, where speed limit signs are rare, you're sans detector and the limit itself fluctuates, it's nice to be able to see at a glance whether it's 55 mph or 65 mph.

Although you can't see it in the photo (it was like trying to photograph a computer screen), the display does have "mph" underneath the "30" so it effectively mimics a speed limit sign.

This readout is just one of the many functions you can select for this central display. It can also show you trip data (including fuel economy stats), all four tire pressures, infotainment system info and a secondary navi display.

    Very neat. Speed Limit is one thing that I really miss from my Google Maps app that I used to have in my old Garmin device. It was also nice how it showed you your current speed, which acted like a HUD. Does the Speed Limit show up in the HUD? What would be really cool is if it could be connectable to 3rd party devices, so radar detectors could pass info to be displayed...

    @kirkhilles: It does not display in the HUD, but it is a great feature nevertheless. It's the default display I use on my C7.

    UConnect puts something similar in the navi screen, since it is a Garmin-based unit. but having it in the IP is kick-[non-permissible content removed].
