I drive through London often, and I’m surprised at how often the in car speed signs / warnings are inaccurate. Has anyone else noticed this?

Not got my eqc yet but drive an eclass with the same tech. The car uses a mixture of signs read by the camera and sat nav data. So here in France it can be quite confused as our national speed limit was dropped in 2018 to be revised on a local level in 2019. So if you join a dept road between signs it maybe 80 or 90km depending on the dept and their view of the road ie a major route. So the car using sat nav currently will show 80 until it sees a sign saying 90.....an update of the sat nav has changed some routes up to 90 but not all as the authorities are all moving at different speeds in their reviews. All a bit of a pain but the answer to your question may lie in how the car is identifying the sp Ed at the time you see it ie panel or sat nav🤷‍♀️

I use the in car sat nav. I assume this is an app. I have driven some roads through London where the sat nav believes I can do 70mph on a 20mph. Seems bizarre!

That does seem bizarre. i thought the car used both speed sign assist ie cameras across the range as well as sat nav data. Certainly it is pretty accurate in the e class just thrown by the 2018/2020 gov revisions described above. If the speeds are well signposted then the camera should read it. I know the amount of street furniture was out of control when I last lived near London 12yrs ago with far too much signage. I would refer your concerns to your dealer in case it is something to do with the gps not working properly and the cars location not being properly identified.
