    Nav System: Software & Speed Limits

    I've used the Navigon software on my iPhone for a couple of years now, and one of the features I like is that it shows the speed limit for the road you're on. Also warns you if you are exceeding it. In that the map system used in the small display is Navigon, wish it would utilize that feature. Maybe an update down the road.

    It's nice to know so you can keep it within 25 MPH above the posted speed limit.

    I've been curious what the estimated range of the 85kwh performance model is when cruise control is set to 90mph lol

    I don't know. If it is anything like my GTI the effeciency will drop like a rock above 80mph. I should know I cruise at 85+mph most of the time. When someone else drives my car on a road trip they seem to get another 50 miles out of a tank!

    Our freeways are lame:
    Our freeways can't accommodate the 90 mph operating speed
    WSDOT says roads can't support 90 mph freeway passes - Local - MyNorthwest.com
