2014 Cruise control change by +/- 5MPH?

The manual says:

Quote:
While the Normal (Fixed Speed) Cruise Control is set, you can increase the set speed by pressing and holding the SET + button. If the button is continually pressed, the set speed will continue to increase in 5 mph (10 km/h) increments until the button is released. The increase in set speed is reflected in the EVIC display.
Has anybody been successful in getting the cruise control to adjust in 5MPH increments? Our mercedes has this feature and it is really handy for moving speed up and down as the speed limit changes. I tried this on my 2014 overland w/o the advanced tech package and I never saw the speed move in the 5 MPH increments. Is this one of those features mentioned in the manual that doesn't really exist?

I have the Advance tech package. It you do a quick push and release it goes in 1 mph increments. if you hold it down it will go in 5 mph increments but watch is because it the move quickly; you can go up 40 or so mph pretty quicly.

I'm positive this works with the adaptive cruise control. I'll have to try it with normal CC.

I can confirm this statement. I learned the hard way because my father kept complaining that the SET - does not engage at the desired speed (72 or 77 mph) and always lower, 75, 70, 65. He would press it again and the speed dropped by a further 5 mph. I found out that he kept the button pressed for more than just a moment. I was simply pressing it and immediately releasing. We both have Subaru as other cars and on Subarus you have to keep it pressed for about a second to engage cruise control.

Once you have ACC you never use normal CC - therefore I cannot confirm this.

Re: 2014 Cruise control change by +/- 5MPH?

Can anybody confirm how this works on non advanced tech packages? I have tried the press and hold and it never gives me a 5MPH increment. I don't see any change on the EVIC to indicate the new desired speed. I'll try it again today, but even just tapping the + set didn't seem to change the speed at all.

Re: 2014 Cruise control change by +/- 5MPH?

Does the owner's manual say it works this way for non-acc systems?

Mine vanilla cruise control seems to work like all my other cars. The car accelerates as long as I hold the button and stops accelerating when I lift my finger.

Re: 2014 Cruise control change by +/- 5MPH?

Yeah the owner's manual doesn't distinguish between FIXED cruise control functionality for non-acc and acc vehicles. It just has a separate section on how the adaptive works. This is the whole section on fixed cruise control and the next section is on adaptive.



Quote:
ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL — IF EQUIPPED
When engaged, the Electronic Speed Control takes over accelerator operations at speeds greater than 20 mph (32 km/h).
The Electronic Speed Control buttons are located on the right side of the steering wheel.
Electronic Speed Control Buttons
1 — ON/OFF 4 — SET-/DECEL 2 — SET+/ACCEL 5 — CANCEL
3 — RESUME

UNDERSTANDING THE FEATURES OF YOUR VEHICLE 185
NOTE: In order to ensure proper operation, the Elec- tronic Speed Control System has been designed to shut down if multiple Speed Control functions are operated at the same time. If this occurs, the Electronic Speed Control System can be reactivated by pushing the Electronic Speed Control ON/OFF button and resetting the desired vehicle set speed.
To Activate
Push the ON/OFF button to activate the electronic speed control. CRUISE CONTROL READY will appear on the instrument cluster to indicate the electronic speed control is on. To turn the system off, push the ON/OFF button a second time. CRUISE CONTROL OFF will appear on the instrument cluster to indicate the electronic speed control is off. The system should be turned off when not in use.
WARNING!
Leaving the Electronic Speed Control system on when not in use is dangerous. You could accidentally set the system or cause it to go faster than you want. You could lose control and have an accident. Always leave the system OFF when you are not using it.
To Set A Desired Speed
Turn the Normal (Fixed Speed) Cruise Control ON. When the vehicle has reached the desired speed, press the SET (+) or SET (-) button and release. Release the accelerator and the vehicle will operate at the selected speed. Once a speed has been set a message CRUISE CONTROL SET TO MPH/KM will appear indicating what speed was set. An indicator CRUISE will also appear and stay on in the instrument cluster when the speed is set.
3

186 UNDERSTANDING THE FEATURES OF YOUR VEHICLE
To Deactivate
A soft tap on the brake pedal, pushing the CANCEL button, or normal brake pressure while slowing the vehicle will deactivate Electronic Speed Control without erasing the set speed memory. Pressing the ON/OFF button or turning the ignition switch OFF erases the set speed memory.
To Resume Speed
To resume a previously set speed, push the RES button and release. Resume can be used at any speed above 20 mph (30 km/h).
To Vary The Speed Setting
When the Normal (Fixed Speed) Cruise Control is set, you can increase speed by pushing the SET (+) button. If the button is continually pressed, the set speed will continue to increase until the button is released, then the new set speed will be established.
Pressing the SET (+) button once will result in a 1 mph (1 km/h) increase in set speed. Each subsequent tap of the button results in an increase of 1 mph (1 km/h).
While the Normal (Fixed Speed) Cruise Control is set, you can increase the set speed by pressing and holding the SET + button. If the button is continually pressed, the set speed will continue to increase in 5 mph (10 km/h) increments until the button is released. The increase in set speed is reflected in the EVIC display.
To decrease speed while the Normal (Fixed Speed) Cruise Control is set, push the SET (-) button. If the button is continually held in the SET (-) position, the set speed will continue to decrease until the button is released. Release the button when the desired speed is reached, and the new set speed will be established.
Pressing the SET (-) button once will result in a 1 mph (1 km/h) decrease in set speed. Each subsequent tap of the button results in a decrease of 1 mph (1 km/h).
While the Normal (Fixed Speed) Cruise Control is set, the set speed can be decreased by pressing and holding the SET - button. If the button is continually pressed, the set speed will continue to decrease in 5 mph (10 km/h) increments until the button is released. The decrease in set speed is reflected in the EVIC display.
To Accelerate For Passing
Press the accelerator as you would normally. When the pedal is released, the vehicle will return to the set speed.
Using Electronic Speed Control On Hills
The transmission may downshift on hills to maintain the vehicle set speed.
NOTE: The Electronic Speed Control system maintains speed up and down hills. A slight speed change on moderate hills is normal.
UNDERSTANDING THE FEATURES OF YOUR VEHICLE 187
On steep hills, a greater speed loss or gain may occur so it may be preferable to drive without Electronic Speed Control.
WARNING!
Electronic Speed Control can be dangerous where the system cannot maintain a constant speed. Your ve- hicle could go too fast for the conditions, and you could lose control and have an accident. Do not use Electronic Speed Control in heavy traffic or on roads that are winding, icy, snow-covered or slippery.

Re: 2014 Cruise control change by +/- 5MPH?

I can confirm the +\- 5 mph feature for the regular cruise control.

You have the advanced tech package right? Does it give you feedback on the evic on what the new set speed is? I tried it again today and see no indication it is doing 5 mph increments. I'm thinking vehicles without the advanced tech package do not move in the +/- 5mph increments despite what the manual says.

Re: 2014 Cruise control change by +/- 5MPH?

Well in the right hand corner you get the symbol and the speed. So yeah, in both NCC and ACC modes there is a set speed display display and by pressing the SET buttons multiple times you can see the set speed adjustments, including the +|- 5 mph increments

Re: 2014 Cruise control change by +/- 5MPH?

I don't have the ATP, and the display only shows the symbol, never any speeds. I select the digital speedometer to see speed increasing or decreasing.

Same here, just the symbol turns green when CC is on. I'm kind of miffed since I read the manual before I purchased and figured this was accurate. I would have probably spent the extra money for the ATP as I was right on the fence about it. Driving my wife's car this weekend where you can easily bump up the speed 10MPH as the speed limited goes from 55 -> 65 ->60 was nice.
