New to the b max, only yesterday, a question about cruise control. Should the panel light up when you turn it on or when the speed is set? When I use cruise the light only comes on when speed is set. Any comment would be great.
Surely it costs nothing to decide how many presses to change speed! It is a computer program with a setting that is changeable and set by the suppliers. There must be a reason other than financial for the difference. One suggestion would be the smaller/shorter roads in the UK so 1 mph is a lot but in USA it is nothing. Maybe watch your speedo when you press and see if it increases with respect to kph.
I also am driving a USA car in both USA and Canada this month. In both countries one press gives one mph but in Canada it is Kph so you need to watch the speedo. However, if you have satnav this warns speed in either mph or kph. I ignore the signs and use the satnav speed information and warnings.
I hired a Canada car a while back and it was possible to change the dash from kph to mph probably because they drive in USA a lot. Now that would cost money. (2 parallel programs)
I can't remember how many presses for the B-MAX but what is a press or two between friends? lol
The reason for the indication not coming on when you press 'ON' is:
When 'SET' and you brake, the cruise control remains 'on' but not 'SET' therefore not in use until you reset it. As soon as you press the 'SET' or the 'RESUME button (no need to press the 'ON' button), the cruise control is reset or set to it's previous setting and therefore 'on' which is shown by the indication.
If it didn't work that way you would need to press the 'ON' button AND the 'SET' button every time you braked and would never be able to resume the speed at which you were when you braked with the 'RESUME' button because the cruise control would be off.
Once you press the 'ON' button cruise control remains on until you either press the 'OFF' button or turn off the ignition. It sits there waiting for you to tell it to resume or choose another set speed at which point it shows you it has control.
