2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye: GPS Speed Limit

March 22, 2013

2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye

When I drove our long-term 2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye home last night I noticed that the GPS seems to know the speed limit wherever I'm driving. A small, practical version of me wearing all white and sporting a halo popped up on my left shoulder and said, "Hey! That's cool, especially at night when signs are hard to see."

What happened next may have changed my mind about this feature...

The light turned green, I drove on and soon noticed the 'GPS Speed' next to the 'Limit' sign had gone from white to red. Another small, very impractical and paranoid version of me wearing all red, carrying a pitchfork and sporting a cape appeared on my right shoulder and yelled at me, "Hey! They're tracking you! We don't like that feature at all! How can you turn it off?"

I'm still not sure which small version of me to listen to in this case but they both seem to have valid points. Do you want your GPS telling you that you're going 36 mph in a 35 zone, or is it overkill?
