I'm off to France in my Captur . Does anyone know how to disable the speed camera sensor.
I've asked Renault customer services. They said they would get back to me, but they haven't so far.

May I ask why you would want to disable it?

Because in France, it is illegal to have speed camera detectors/sensors of any sort, even map or GPS-based ones. If it's on a satnav unit, even if the unit is switched off, they confiscate it (and you don't get it back, so technically they steal it from you) and issue a large fine that you have to pay before being allowed to continue your journey. Not sure what they do if it's on a unit that's built in to the car but it is better not to take any chances

The Medianav speed camera warning system is MAP-BASED, and as IvorETower says, even these have to be turned off.
