You would think the data is stored in the nav, but its not. pay close attention next time you are driving through a school zone and you will notice the speed limit info changes precisely after you pass the sign with the reduced limit.
Very true. I thought it was stored in the navi but discovered on my european delivery that it got the speed limits correct even in constructions zones and it nailed it every time. It is actually reading the signs from a camera on the windshield by the rearview mirror "Connected Drive" area. Pretty damn slick!
