Turning Off Lane Assist

Post by Wig » Fri May 14, 2021 11:37 am

Every time I get in the car I have to go through the menu to turn off this annoying feature as it is reactivated each time I leave the car. Since the system takes so long to fire up, this has to be done while driving along on a narrow lane while the system is telling me to drive in the middle of the road. Can I disable this for ever?

No. It's part of the NCAP 5* accreditation that it can't be permanently turned off.

As above, that NCAP 5* rating doesn't come for free.

Why does it have to be done driving along a narrow lane? Can't you just wait a minute or so to disable it before you move the car?

It only takes about 45 seconds waiting to be able to make the change but doing that every time you get in the car is tedious. Imagine if your phone was returned to factory settings every time you put it down. It also needs at least a minute to unscramble the car insisting on playing music from a phone and deleting a record of what media was being previously played. It feels like a system designed by geeks without being tested on real people.

I’m sure there are geeks at NCAP who decide what their star ratings mean.

I'm sure it is NCAP who insist that the system is rest every time the vehicle turned off. However I think it is VW who have interpreted this as needing as 3 stage process to disable again.
My previous Nissan reset itself each time as per the ID3, but had a 1 push physical button to disable. Once you got used to it you could perform the action without taking your eyes off the road - much safer than looking at the touch screen for long enough to do this on the ID3 - don't tell the insurance industry or our premiums will go up even more!!

Is there a voice command for it?

What is the current NCAP rating of your Nissan? I heard that the lack of 1-touch disable was also part of why the ID.3 has 5*

How much interaction or intervention are you getting? I live in rural (ish) Wales and drive on a lot of B and unclassified roads single carrigeway with passing places or two lanes with a centre marking but again only passable for car on car. I hardly ever get any issues with the lane control.
