    Glad to see you here Zen. I have used Cruise Control extensively, overseas, where speed limits are strictly enforced. CC really helps maintaining the speed within the legal limits.

    Also, I do not understand what my being a good responsible driver has got to do with CC. Are you confusing CC with NOS?

    Thanks for the suggestion. I will consider it seriously and take it up as a business, if it will help me earn more than my day job :D

    Mr Zen ,

    Take ur car in NH-4 for a long drive (More than 100 or 200 Km in plain well tarmac road with less traffic ) rather than spinning it in cross roads of Blr. You will get to know whats the use of Cruise control. I regularly travel in NH-4 hence i know the pain of keeping one leg on accelerator pedal.

    @Rajan,

    Since all i know CC is for controling speeds who is going over board of limits. So being a responsible good driver, one will consider all these limits and stay with in that range. Hence stated so without needing of the CC. Apologies if my understanding is just half on this topic.

    @Venka,
    Hmm... I have been to NICE 2 or 3 times so far. But i did not see the pain of keeping my legs on accelerator than compared to with in city. I am not sure if i understood your point correctly.

    zen driving 20-30kms is nothing compared to driving 200/300/400 in a stretch.
    Try doing that then you will know what patchyboy / venka were thinking of !!

    Ok sorry guys, now i read fully about CC. Initially had thought that Clutch isnt operated by CC, but CC systems do that. So on larger distances, legs are freed up good. Thanks for your patience and replies folks.

    Rajan, i dont know much cars/vendors providing this feature in India. As you said consider it as business and youll make good money. I could be one of your customers :D

    Oh. I think I understand your question now. What you are talking about is speed governor, which prevents the vehicle from exceeding a predetermined speed - the cabs on our roads badly need one.

    Cruise control is not meant for that. It is a constant speed regulator - meaning it helps maintain a set speed, without the driver having to use the accelerator constantly. Cruise control can be set to any speed. You can set it to 150 kmph in a 40 kmph zone, if you so choose :D

    rajan, if zen was to become your first customer, just think about how many and what all questions you would have to answer for him. by the time he is convinced, you might forget how you did the installation. :evilsmile

    zen: not to be taken seriously!
