Set ACC to 70mph (or your preferred cruising speed) and you don't have to touch the pedals until you leave the motorway - I continue to be childishly amused / technically impressed by the abilities of ACC.Crawling along a Motorway holiday traffic? Stop/start 5-10mph? Well at least you don't have to bother with clutch control and gear changes so stop complaining.
Anyway if you want to make it even easier, press the ACC button and it defaults to 20mph (plenty for crawling along) and your car will take the strain of crawling along behind the car in front automatically. If you come to an absolute standstill it cancels, but a gentle press of the accelerator re-engages it.
You don't even need to touch the accelerator. Instead just touch the top button on the left steering wheel pad, the one with the circle arrow and a + sign. That re-engages the system as you left it.If you come to an absolute standstill it cancels, but a gentle press of the accelerator re-engages it.
That's the "Curve Speed Assist" functionality.
Volvo provides an icon to let you know about it. Polestar does not.That's the "Curve Speed Assist" functionality.
Curve Speed Assist can help the driver reduce speed before sharp turns if the preset speed for the driver support fun...www.volvocars.com
It not doing this (and not similarly negotiating bumps/dips) is the main reason I stopped using ACC. Will have to try it again
Are you suggesting that it might/should slow down on it's own for bumps/dips? I'm not sure it could react that fast, or get any preemptive data on it from google.It not doing this (and not similarly negotiating bumps/dips) is the main reason I stopped using ACC. Will have to try it again
Does it really do this? It would be a great feature to have, but right now I'm not convinced our cars slow down on sharp turns.
