Hi - thanks for that, but unfortunately I have the smaller display which does not have that button. Page 2.65 of the main Megane manual does state, for cars without the larger screen, "from the multimedia screen 2 (whatever that is), select Vehicle menu, driving assistance, speed alert settings. " However, I can find no such menu on my car.

Hi - no I don't. Mine looks like the below picture. Pressing it brings up the menu on the screen, which is just basic stuff and not driver alerts.

Oooh, that's interesting. I haven't seen an RS with the smaller screen yet so didn't know the buttons were different.

I'll look into it.

Interesting indeed. I too had no idea they were different until I saw the picture you posted.

Would very much appreciate any light you can shed on the matter. As it stands, any and all guidance in all 3 of the supplied manuals is incorrect as they all basically advise as per your original instructions or say to press a menu button which is not present on my car.

Hi

Sorry, I don't have that option (although, as I've said all the manuals I have supplied with the car, quick guide etc point this way.)

Basically, the "Driving Assistance" menu does not exist on my car. When I press the "vehicle" button on the first menu, I get presented with the following options instead:

Chaps, pop into your local Renault dealer and get one of the sales people to sort it for you. That's what I did. Though annoyingly didn't watch what they did. There is a way out of this madness.

Have you tried swiping the screen to the left? On the screen you have shown, swipe from right to left and it may show more options?

That doesn't work, as there's no more options.

Although, believe me, I did try doing that a few times to no avail.

I'll do some more homework. I wonder if it's buried in the Nav menu somewhere now....

The R-Link 2 manual that came with the car seems to suggest that in the Navigation settings menu, under "Sounds & Warnings" there are a set of options that should read:

"Navigation Voice"
"Speed Warning"
"Safety Warnings"
"Warning Sign Alerts"
"Route Warning"

However, in my car, the speed warning on/off menu simply is not there:

Has anyone managed to get the RS Monitor to work with RS Replay to record telemetry data?

I didn't buy the RS Monitor app with the car and activated it from the R-Link shop a few months after having the car. The RS Monitor works fine.

I then came across https://www.renaultsport.com/rsreplay/

From what I understand you can either download tracks, or create your own tracks, and the RS Monitor will be able to write the telemetry data to a USB stick that you can upload to the RS Reply website to view.

[i]I found these instructions from an archived Renault forum:

Set up an account on the Renault Sport page at https://www.renaultsport.com/rsp
I believe the username/password is common across all Renault Sport pages so you may already be registered.
Click on 'OK', accept the disclaimer (in French) to open the main page - NOTE: This can be a bit temperamental.

Select the tab MAPS/CIRCUITS
From here you can...
1. See a list of maps you have submitted.
2. Create a new map - Bit like Google Earth Maps, search and select a circuit and then using a series of mouse clicks describe the track layout from a given start point.
3. See all the maps that have been added by other members.

Once you have made/selected a map click on to the SEE DETAILS OF THE MAP (bottom Left) to see the full map view.
If you are happy with it then click on option 1 - Export for RS Monitor.
Download both files - .kml and .png - to your computer.

Both files now need to be copied to a memory stick for use with RS Monitor.
The memory stick must have a folder named RS with sub-folders named Acquisitions, Highscores,Maps,Screenshots.
To be honest I cannot remember if they are created automatically if you download the file direct from RS Replay so you may need to create the structure manually.
RS
Acquisitions
Highscores
Maps
Screenshots

Both downloaded files need to copied to the Maps folder.

In car, switch on the Monitor and insert the USB stick - ignore the 'No Music Found' message.
Scroll through the RS Monitor screens to the GPS Stopwatch.
Press the '+' button and select 'Change Track' - all maps (.png) on the memory stick will be displayed.
Select the desired circuit.

Move back (left arrow) 2 screens to the Datalogger.
By default the virtual switch will be in the OFF position.
Touching it will switch it on - Beware: It will start logging as soon as you do this therefore if you are in the pits etc you will get a lot of useless information so best to activate once you are on track.

When you actually activate will be determined by what you want to do with the recorded data.
As you have seen I want to synchronise mine with the on-board video so I switch mine on at the end of the first (warm up) lap making note of a visual reference on track for editing the start point of the final video.

Once you have finished for the day connect the USB to your computer and log in to RS Replay.
Select RUNS/IMPORT A RUN
Browse to the RS/Acquisitions folder - All recorded sessions will be displayed.
Select one, fill in the run information and press SAVE.
This will now be added to your MY RUNS list, double click on the list and a graphic of the run will be displayed.
Select the INFOS RUNS tab - here you can run each lap individually of select REPLAY to run the complete session.
At the top right of the window you will see an icon (Whit Cross) - this will allow you to download the telemetry data as a .csv file.

All you need now is your in car video plus software that can read the telemetry data and you are good to go.

If by now you are thinking that this all seems a bit long winded and tedious then I would have to agree with you.
However after a few times it does not seem quite as bad and IMHO does enable you to analyse your performance lap by lap whilst displaying the circuit and 3 (selectable) of the monitor screens plus your video can be enhanced quite nicely.[/i]

I have messed around with various USB sticks and have made sure that they are formatted to FAT32. The R-Link 2 system can definitely read from the stick as it can play music from it.

I am stuck trying to access what is described in the instructions above as the plus sign to access the GPS stopwatch or select a track. On my RS Monitor it has 4 screens, the last of which is the lap timer.

Had anyone here got this system working in a Megane 280/300?

This might work to disable the speed alert where the option isn’t available on the screen?

We also noticed the random (seemingly) beeping. Does it beep whenever you are at the speed limit?

There’s a new road near us we went for a spin that’s a 70 but it showed on the nav it was 60.. so it was very musical 😂

Can anyone who goes in ask them how to do it for the rest of us? My last car had a user configurable “speed limit” so it would beep whenever I went over. That was fine. Does this one beep when you’re bang on the speed?
