Very different.

Setting cruise control for, say, 20mph in Llandudno would be useless - braking overrides it but then it is relying on you braking!

There is far too much concentration on what the dashboard is telling you - your speed should be governed by what you see in front of you and what the road conditions are ... in other words the speed "governor" is your brain via what you can see, the control is via your right foot.

Sat Navs do show up the max speed limit where you are but many change and your Sat Nav is not updated - e.g. the new 20mph limits in Llandudno don't show up on Sat Navs.

I disagree, I always use cruise control for 20, 30, 40mph limits and it makes for a more relaxed drive as you just concentrate on the road. I accept braking cancels it but that means traffic is traveling slower than the limit, once it speeds up again you re-engage the cruise. Simples.

Most cruise control won't engage below 25 mph. Adaptive Cruise control is better, but I've always found that speeds are so erratic in built up areas it's usually futile to try using it for any distance.

Don't know what car you have SDQ but it must be a lot simpler to set cruise control than it is on mine.  The only time I use it is if going through speed limited roadworks on motorways or the A55 if no other traffic.

Otherwise cruise control is at the lower end of my right leg !

VW Passat CC, the cruise control has a dedicated stalk on the steering column.
It's a Godsend in those long 30mph stretches from Junction to Llandudno via Deganwy and Rhos seafront from Penrhyn Bay to be honest. Once it's on you can control the speed using the stalk without touching the pedals too. I wouldn't be without it now!

Probably how the original started.

Fester, really. A car with a speed limiter on the A55 for example. The mind boggles.
  I,m not sure about a cruise control but must admit I've never experienced one. But what is your objection to my suggestion?

I think Mike is responding to a post you made on July 27th...
