Can anyone who has bought an excellence lux (U.K.) please confirm that traffic sign recognition is included. Thanks.

Pretty sure the Luxs haven't made it to owners hands yet, and this is not included on any models for MY19 (or at least nobody from SEAT knows it is)

I have an Xcellence and it has road sign recognition. Think it came with one of the additional driver packs though.

On 'old spec' Atecas it was an option for Driver Assist Pack 1 (not 2 - on both DSG and manual) or the Advanced Comfort and Driver Assist pack (DSG models only - non DSG models could only opt for Advanced Driver Assist pack which didn't have it).

From spec sheets, price lists and configurator output it seems to have been removed entirely from the new ranges and isn't an add-on option.

If that's the case, it's a real shame. It's a good feature and works well.

If you have the advanced driving assistance pack with lane assist you have the hardware required, traffic sign recognition can then be enabled with obdeleven

I think it’s a bit of a gimmick rather than a genuinely useful feature, it’s more speed limit sign recognition and you get similar info from Waze. It is one of the less useful features on our car.

I beg to differ
I wouldn't be without the speed limit recognition having now got it
Its great to be able to check the limit especially in roadworks and the over speed warning is tied in with it.

In France this year it was almost essential as village entry signs (50kph) is just the village name and easy to miss, but the car spots it and reflects the correct speed. Also with the dual speed on some of Frances roads (130 fine /110 rain) it swaps from 130 to 110 if the wipers are needed

Had this in my last car and also have it in my current Skoda.

Good example of T.S.R. - road near us recently changed from 40 to 30mph. Sat nav maps still declaring road a 40mph zone so Traffic Sign Recog. working.

Bad example - followed a truck on the road last week which had a 60mph speed sticker on the back. Sat Nav map says road is 40mph, drivers info panel read 60mph, actual speed limit is 30mph.

Never a good idea to rely on technology.

Possibly because behind a truck, the camera cannot see the road signs?
