Traffic sign recognition - region specific availability

Whenever I travel west of Romania (Hungary and onwards), Traffic sign recognition becomes available.
When in Romania, I get a message saying that my country is not supported.

I have been reading that the availability of traffic sign recognition is region based.

The only place I found, to change the region is in Comand online, and I was unsuccessful in doing so, in Xentry.

I managed to change my region in Vediamo, successfully, however, traffic sign recognition didn't become available (as I probably expected).

However, what I noticed in Vediamo, is that there is also an option called "code free".
When trying to set that option, I get an error code, as shown in the image. Perhaps a more "powerful" cbf file, with more permissions is needed?

I'm still wondering, what could this region code be used for, in Comand? Vediamo calls it DVD region code?

As labeled that is for the DVD region, sign recognition is done with map data unless an update with sign recognition for your country becomes available coding in Vediamo won't help.

I know, I didn't expect it to be changed from there, I kinda mixed the topics.

In any case, you can activate Traffic sign assist for several countries in the MPC, as shown in the attached image.

The traffic assist is now activated for me. Will see how it works out, with the selected parameter (which I put to be same as Hungary and Germany, as the signs are the same).

I test drove the car, and the sign recognition is now fully functional in my country

I know I could, but I prefer to look at the trees and mountains, not the signs
Just kidding.

Of course, but like with anything else this car has to offer, this is also a convenience feature. If I can have it for free, why not?

Congrats! But don't rely on it too much, mine isn’t perfect....and if you’re looking out at the trees and mountains....
...mine throws up anomalous signs eg 20mph in a 30, no idea why.

I agree, I experienced the same, while in Hungary. Highway has some km numbers, so after each few kilometers, I get a notification showing I should not exceed X km/h.
But then again, that's why it's a convenience feature, not something you can rely on it. These cars have way too old technology, compared to what cars are capable to do, today.
