Speed limit display

Has anyone been experiencing problems with the above?
On several occasions I've found it to be indicating the incorrect speed limit, despite the clear presence of normally placed warning signs.
I'm now at the point where I no longer trust it.

If by "national speed limit sign" you mean the black diagonal stripe on a white disc, the answer is no; it just displays the number 70 on white within a red circle, as per all other limits.
After four months, I still occasionally find it indicating the wrong limit; therefore, I never rely on it. TBH I think it's more of a gimmick and I won't order it on my next car.

I've always found it pretty reliable even picks up the variable speed limit LED type signs on motorways.
