We do a lot of driving across country and there are lots of different speeds to contend with, and not always clearly visible, so it's easy to get caught out with the cameras.
The road sign recognition camera/nav will tell you the speed limit, just use the display as a reminder in case you've missed a speed limit sign.

Funny how a simple question can get such silly replies......
Simple question = silly replies. Maybe it's because I've been driving long enough to remember when the only warning sound you had ( or vaguely required) was the click ,click of the indicator. ;)

Thanks for ' useful ' replies :roll: .....I was just asking a simple question. I personally CAN drive safely without all the so called beeping.......but find it useful as a reminder not to exceed certain speed restrictions that have cameras.
I quite agree that most of the audible sounds the car can make are unnecessary and I have them turned off. But if there was a simple 'beep' to remind me not to exceed for example 50mph, then I would be happy to hear it.
If my Qashqui doesn't have this function......I won't loose sleep over it.
If you need a reminder then you are not concentrating on your driving,

Sorry if you take offence, but it annoys me that people won't take responsibility for their own actions and need someone else to blame. Read the road

Don't worry rod, it would take a lot more than your silly comments to cause me offence.

The navigation app called Waze can alert you when you reach whatever speed you predefine. Not exactly what you are looking for but a decent app with realtime traffic conditions directly sourced from its users. What you are after would be a nice safety feature if you ask me.

Handy I agree, I have it on my satnav, but a safety feature? Do you need to be electronicallly prompted to drive safely?

Not at all but sometimes a gentle audible reminder that I've reached the speed limit would be appreciated. Not all of us have zero points on our licenses you know :oops:. Its that that I want to keep safe :D

Indeed, as I said... it is handy, but not a safety feature.

2018 Qashqai Tekna Diesel Manual

I have just bought the car and have only done 70 miles but I already love the car. The only thing that I find most annoying is that the perfectly audible beep, which occurs when approaching a traffic camera, disappears when the radio is on. This makes no sense, but the Dealership insists that this was how the car was deliberately designed. At first they insisted that they could hear the beep, which is impossible when the radio is on. Do other people have the same problem with the beep? Whatever the rights or wrongs of having warnings, I think that advertised functionality should work.

I'd say that you need to find out whether they actually disappear or not. If they are anything like the parking sensors on my Qashqai, they are so faint that the radio easily swamps them. I installed a louder speaker but even then it can be easily overpowered by the radio.
