Curve Speed Warning: My Car Does What

Curve Speed Warning

Warns you when you’re approaching a curve or exit on the road too quickly.

Drivers may not always remember to reduce their speed when taking an exit. Or, if it’s late at night or the driver is unfamiliar with the area, they may not realize they’re about to enter a curve. This feature tracks the car’s speed and location, via GPS, and warns the driver to slow down when approaching curves and exits.

Some versions of this feature can coordinate with a database of high-risk curves and exits to alert drivers to take extra caution.

What It Does: Uses GPS to alert driver of upcoming sharp turns.

What It Does Not Do: Will not apply brakes to help the driver steer. Some curves are not identified in its maps.
