You switch it on/off with the button at the end of the (left) steeringwheel stalk, which remembers the last setting ....

The display between the gauges shows if it is working, at the top a white line will appear on the right or left or both as the system picks up on the road markings. I think it only works above 30mph as well.

38 MPH to be exact - Once you have one or two solid white lines showing in the display, just veer towards one of the solid sides, without using the indicator and it'll soon let you know.

I get so many false alarms on UK country roads with white edge of road markings I always disable lane warnings.

My Stelvio has this and Iíve never used it. The road markings are probably not good enough.

Sometimes the system doesnt see the lines even though they were clearly visible and sometimes it sees lines when they are barely visible.

I have it turned off unless Iím on the motorway. So many false alarms plus when Iím dashing through the country lanes I tend to use more than my fair share of road anyways (when itís safe to do so of course).

I donít see why it would be used on anything other than motorway? I assumed itís basically to assist when you go into Ďthe zoneí and are at risk of drifting I.e nothing is changing much on the journey to keep you alert whereas on a country lane if youíre not alert , get off!!!

Perhaps if you need the lane assist to stay alert on the motorway, you should get off there too. Or buy a Tesla.

Thanks......I've learnt something today. I wondered why it never seemed to be on!
