I get that too, why does it only come up occasionally??

Super pleased with my car by the way, almost 2k Miles now, the green and the car itself get a load of positive attention!!

Needs to have its first clean now really...!!

Imho the car starts to recognize local areas eg mine will nearly always suggest coasting when it "sees" a lower speed limit ahead or a downhill section. Perhaps it uses maps or stores some info? Clever for sure.

Dealer told me the car uses gps and knowledge of gradients of the road to inform you by way of the green foot that you can coast and retain the same speed, don’t think it quite works or usually comes up for me when I am about to enter a 30 and I have to brake anyway.

You two need to play with your knobs a bit more. There’s loads to explore.

No mate. You’re just like me. Guess we both like to have a fiddle round with our knobs.

I have only just worked out you can change all the seat settings to hug you more! I thought it was just for massage.

The green foot thing - the car is reading the Satnav for you and has most likely figured that you are approaching a junction or roundabout and thinks you should consider backing off a little...

I test drove an SQ5 a few months back and had it explained to me....it's annoying to say the least.
