You will begin to understand ALL the capabilities of this system. There are a lot.
There is under settings, a function you can turn on speed watch.
It will remind you if you go over the speed limit. That can be adjusted to like 5/10 over the limit.

But you do need to read the manual. Once you learn the system it will be unbeatable. There are a lot of options available that can be confusing.
You just have to be patient and stick with it.
Good Luck
Thanks, I'll admit that I haven't read the whole manual, but should it really be this difficult to get from point A to point B.

Yes, but this feature is not very effective. The warning voice is way to sweet and comes from only the front driver's side speaker. It would be more realistic & effective if it came from the front passenger speaker, and was both louder and more intense!!!

My recommendations meant to be a "wife simulator" - thus the resultant improvement in effectiveness with our without the wife. You bring up an excellent point - perhaps the passenger side voice should be disabled if the sensors detect a female bottom in the shotgun position.

Re: scenic route GPS

Lately I have been having the same problem with my uconnect gps - it takes me on the most convoluted route - I spend most of the time ignoring it as I usually only need the last few minutes of directions. I am not given the option to choose shortest of fastest and I have no options checked in the settings.

These options aren't in the regular Settings screen - you'll only get the option for "fastest" or "shortest" route when you first enter a destination - look for the route options button then. The routing for subsequent routes stays on what you choose there (until you change it again). Always choose "fastest" unless you want some really scenic trips down very untraveled roads.
