Stop/Start delay

Post by hulahoopian » Tue May 08, 2018 1:01 pm

I like stop/start, but if you're trickling along you don't really want it firing all the time. I guess there's no way to code it to wait, say, 5 seconds after stopping, before it cuts in ?

Just press the button to turn it off, then turn it back on once you're in flowing traffic.

The system is set up to 'detect' start stop traffic, so if you only crawl forward a tiny amount and then stop again, the system will stop shutting down.

I guess anything like this will have a threshold though, so slightly over a time and it'll keep kicking in. There's the button to deactivate it as mentioned, but if the traffic is obviously a bit dodgy and I don't want it active I also sometimes use Sport mode as this deactivates it too.
