Just bought a ‘21 Lariat that I’m picking up on Sunday - does anyone know if these have the speed sign recognition other models have?

I test drove a bronco sport that had it and thought it was pretty cool. Google search seems to reference Australian models so - does the NA version have this?

Ok. Never used forscan but computers don’t scare me. I don’t have a windows laptop though.... may have to track down an old cheap beater and give this a try.

definitely a worthwhile feature. Wonder why they don’t implement/market it for the ranger.

Forscan is definitely cool and you can make lots of little tweaks to make your truck yours. Just be sure to make your backups.

As for the speed sign recognition it's and easy enable that's documented elsewhere here. Your 2021 should have the US speed sign graphics
Those of us with 2019s appear to be stuck with the European signs. Think there was a firmware update for MY2020.

Check out the Forscan threads for how-tos and things you can do.

Doesn't GPS display speed limits? Mine does and warns when exceeding them.
So what is the purpose of speed sign recognition?

My '20 Lariat displays the speed limit when on the navigation screen on the right side of cluster. It does this wether actively navigating or not.

Not sure if it comes from the navigation or sign recognition. Haven't made it to that part of the book yet

What I would like is for the automatic cruise control to recognize speed limit signs and adjust accordingly. Can that be enabled in for forscan.
