I have read and been told by dealers that the XLR computer will "learn" a drivers characteristics and adjust accordingly. Does anybody know specifically what those capabilities may be? Could it also involve the Nav system?

I think I may be teaching my car bad things.

I programmed a destination in the Nav Sys and it showed that a 17 mile trip
would take me 12 minutes to arrive. 15 of the 17 miles was freeway
So you don't have to do the math, that's 85 mph average.
Has my car "learned" that I might drive it that fast? Or more specifically,
has it "learned" my habits on that particular stretch of freeway?


Or has my car simply "learned" that I like a good challenge...................... :rolleyes

Two areas that I know it learns over time...

1) Your foot-pedal throttle positions are stored. The system adjusts the engine output and transmission settings based on the profile for that driver. My XLR driving became much smoother over time. Some of that was me and some of that was the XLR's smarts.

2) The voice recognition system seems to have a limited amount of learning it does with voice inputs. My system's accuracy has improved with use.

In terms of the GPS system, I had a previous GM car with nav that did try to analyze your average city and average highway speeds. My Q45 has a menu item to set those average speeds (less magical that way). I'm not sure which way the XLR uses, but it wouldn't surprise me if the Nav uses an average speed determined by actual use. It also wouldn't surprise me to find out that there is a different set of speeds depending upon the driver number.
