Hi,

The Dacia Lodgy has as a standard accessory a speed limiter. Such device is not much useful, but does anybode know if this limiter is possible to convert to a cruise control?

I doubt it can be converted but don't write it off completely, when work first fitted speed limiters to our vans we drive we all hated them but you quickly get used to it and the limiter in my van has saved me getting speeding points quite a few times. I don't know if the police in Finland set up sneaky radar speed check points the same as ours do though.

Yes indeed, in Finland we also have very much of these automatic radar controls that takes a picture of your cars registration number when you momentarely exceed the speed limit.

But we also now a days in Finland we have more sofisticated speed controls which not only measure the momentary speed, but also the mean speed you have used when driving some 2-5 km. These are normally implemented with two well hidden cameras and sensors in the road, both apart from each other some 2-5 km. Police computer then will calculate your mean velocity and if it exceed some 5-10 km/h the speed limit of the road, you will get an invitation to an interrogation by the local police authority.

Yes we are getting more of those 'average speed' systems as well in other areas. In the highlands where I live there are many policemen with radar guns. There is only one fixed camera here but there are a couple of mobile vans that can pop up anywhere.

No idea what there is South of Fort William but from there North there aren't any. None needed at this time of year as you're not likely to get faster than 40mph with all the caravans and cyclists on the road! :( Fort William - Inverness usually takes about 1hr 20mins, just now it can be 2hrs. If you plan to drive it go very early or very late.

I have read in a German Forum Lodgy-club.de that they are modifying the limiter to make it more like a cruise control. they have been somewhat succesful and have a kit and instruction manual available.

Could you please give a link to that German forum?

Hello, on Friday I picked up my Lodgy Prestige, 2014. It has cruise control built in. Yes, normal cruise control. It also has the limiter option but has full cruise control with speed adjustment on the steering wheel.

Thought you should know.

Www.lodgy-club.de is the link to where they are doing many mods on our Lodgy.

First release models only got the speed limiter, mine is one of those but having used cruise control on other cars I prefer the speed limiter, because you set it and forget it, if you need to slow down you don't have to reset it. I understand that newer cruise controls don't need to be reset but I am happy with speed limiter.
