You will now be cruising at said speed.

Turn first nob forward, and for each one, speed increases by 1mph.
Turn back to decrease by 1mph per turn.

Press brake and it comes off.

If you need to overtake, put foot down and go for it, then take foot off and cruise bring you back too speed

ooooo better description than mine.

as far as what speed is it set at and you want an indication on the dash.. just remember- I feel sure its only gonna be used in a speed camera area or on motorwat/dual carrigeway so indicators to speed are already there- ensure you knock it down a couple or three mph below the limit just in case calibration is out.

are some people clickin it on at say 50 mph.. then using the +the get to 70mph then holdin it there-?? I prefer to manually reach the speed i want then just click it on. and rest my right leg

Well new car - 147 1.6 Lusso
New bike gsxr750
new life-

I've never used it, but I do have a Talex speed camera warning device which gives me a 'reduce speed' warning if I'm above the limit in a speed camera zone...that's definitely saved me points.
