How do I show the road speed limit on my device?

Click here to see which products/categories this applies to.

Many TomTom navigation devices can show you the speed limit for the road you are currently travelling on.

The speed limit is shown next to your current speed. If you drive faster than the speed limit, your speed is shown in red.

  • Information about speed limits is not available for all roads.
  • Always check the speed limit for the road you are on. The speed limit may have changed and the speed limit shown on your navigation device may no longer be correct. TomTom is not liable for errors in the maps and accepts no responsibility if you are caught breaking the speed limit.


To enable this feature, follow these steps:

  1. From the Main menu, tap Settings or Change preferences / Status bar preferences.

  2. Tap Status bar settings or Status bar preferences.

  3. Select how the status bar should be displayed and then tap Next or Done.

  4. Select Maximum speed or Show max speed next to speed and then tap Done.
