    It should know where you are driving from the GPS, surely?

    I'd doubt that - it would make ACC dependent on the nav system preparation package, which might not be installed by default in all markets, and in any case wouldn't explain the behaviour I described.

    EDIT: A bit of research later led me to Patent US6114973 - Method and apparatus for recognizing whether traffic drives on the right or ... - Google Patents , so it seems Bosch have a patent on this very function.

    Well, some of the systems (eg, LED lights, static cornering lights) hook in to the GPS for some of their functions, so it wouldn't surprise me. Perhaps it does it if the GPS is there, and uses that as a backup method? As I say, I've not ever noticed it do this.

    OK - this sounds plausible. I don't have SD Sat Nav or the tech pack, so the ACC wouldn't have the necessary maps available to determine LHD vs RHD and would use the patented logic referred to above.

    Steve: You'll get used to ACC soon enough. It has very few quirks, works remarkably well, and you'll soon learn the limitations and best uses of it.

    I still end up trying to press the imaginary clutch down sometimes in our Golf GTi DSG - we've had it ages!

    Sometimes mind just goes to sleep I think!

    I occasionally do the same and I've been driving with s-tronic for the last 10 years. Mind you I did drive a manual for 38 years before that!!!
