Can anyone tell me what the symbol is that is indicated in the attached photo. It comes up each time an instruction is given as I approach a junction.

Its simply letting you know that if you push the button just to the side of the speedo module (button that looks like a pile of credit cards) it will dismiss whatever notification is on the screen at the time.

It wouldn't be a mystery if you'd read the manual...

There could be many other functions of the car that you're not aware of, some that might benefit your driving experience, some of which may aid the safety of you, your passengers and other road users. That's why the manufacturers go to the trouble of writing it.

I had been through the manual a few times before I asked on here as I thought someone might say that. Thanks for being so helpful.

Trouble is, how do you search for something you don’t know the name of? The manual is around 400 pages!

Mitsubishi has different names for some of the feature (I think parking sensors are called sonar for instance)

Thanks Moonlander. I was going mad trying to find that! There is so much to learn about what this car can do.

I might not have been helpful, but I wasn't wrong was I?

The pdf manual is worth having on a pc as the search function is useful, but as said above, it's hard to search for something when you don't know what it is.

I think you're missing the point here littlescrote. Markd75 already said he'd looked through the manual and posted here afterwards. You could've easily said what you said originally and still helped him at the same time, but you didn't. I joined this site to find info on my car and to help others if possible.

I get the point. I also get that when he says he looked through the manual several times, he must have just bloke looked rather than properly read it because we all know it's in there.

I'm also here to learn and to help people, but sometimes helping people involves encouraging them to learn to fish, not just throwing a fish at them as they haven't bothered to put any bait on their hook.
