GPS-speed limit question

Jump to last reply

I rented a car in Gdansk so that I could travel to an out-of-the-way place--Hitler's Wolf's Lair--near Ketryzn, Poland. The car had a GPS, and on the way back to Gdansk, I finally noticed that the GPS showed the little red traffic warning signal with a number inside it.

It turns out the number was the speed limit of the area through which I was driving. When the speed limit changed, or perhaps when I was unknowingly breaking the speed limit, a little chime would sound.

It took me a while to figure out what was going on, and I've been wondering if this is a common feature of GPS technology nowadays.
