You do realize that i've read that manual, and don't really get it. Hence why I asked here. Not to be lectured to "read the manual". Thats really not helpful, especially from a Moderator.
You made no mention of having read the manual so how was I to know this? Maybe it's just me but I thought the manual was pretty clear how this function worked, however I have not used it firsthand.You do realize that i've read that manual, and don't really get it.

Am I to believe that "Auto Set Speed" set to on simply calculates the time to destination, while set to Off doesnt (as it seems to indicate in the manual)? That doesnt make sense, since it still does calculate when in the off position?
And I can modify the speeds when its "auto set speed" is set to off.
So, it seems that Auto really just means "default" speeds?
Reader's Digest version:I'll probably get killed for this, but what the heck:
It's almost depressing reading some of the "problems" here(and no, I'm not referring to the WAY things are written - that's already been covered - and I'm not referring to some real problems that the car definitely has). I have no idea what this topic is about, and don't care to find out. bkafrick does raise a good point though. Too often, I've been totally confused by "techie" language, descriptions of what is wrong with a computer and the instructions on how to fix it, even though I am well educated. Manuals are written by people who ALREADY know the process, and assume that all others are on the same plane. That's simply not the case. I am glad I bought the Q50, and am enjoying DRIVING it. I have no need to go into a computer to figure out how to set an average speed to get me to a destination in exactly 3 hours and 22 minutes. If I want to know how long it will take me to get somewhere, I can figure that out in less time than it would take doing so on the computer in the car. People have allowed technology to run their lives, instead of having their lives run the technology. It allows people to blame the technology for the mistakes that are made(i.e., "I'm typing on my iPad, and that's why there are so many mistakes in what I've written").
So, should things work perfectly in a device you own? Of course, but in the real world, we know that they don't. We should be well aware of that, based upon our "relationships" with the computers we've had over the years. It's an old story that the more things that are involved, the more things that can go wrong.
It sure is nice, having a wonderful CAR to drive, and living a less frustrating, simpler life, where I am able to do more things for myself, and not worrying whether a computer can do those things for me.
Cute! Now really, I wasn't complaining about anyone bothering me. It's just that too many people have let technology take over their lives and thought processes. As I've said here before, I've had students tell me that they only wanted to know what buttons to push on their calculator, rather than understand the process, and therefore be able to solve many problems.Reader's Digest version:
