Hampshire Cruise Control Fitting
If you do a lot of driving, installing a cruise control system in your vehicle makes a lot of sense. Driving is tiring, both physically and mentally, and it’s easy to lose concentration and unintentionally exceed the speed limits.
Cruise control is an affordable add-on which can be retro-fitted to most vehicles dating from 2007 onwards. Hampshire-based Reverse Park’s mobile fitters come to your home or place of work, by appointment, to fit your cruise control system. The company is based between Southampton and Portsmouth and covers an approximate radius of 60 miles. To check you are in Reverse Park’s area, check the map on the contact page.
Benefits of cruise control systems
Fitting a cruise control has many advantages for drivers, particularly those driving long distances:
- Makes driving less tiring, especially on long journeys
- Reduces the risk of getting caught in speed traps
- Prevents exceeding the speed limit when driving in ‘average-speed’ areas
- Driving at a consistent speed increases fuel efficiency

More about cruise control systems
Like all of Reverse Park’s vehicle technology systems, the cruise controls are guaranteed for as long as you own that vehicle.
Cruise control is designed to be used on motorways, dual carriageways, and suitable A-roads, when you are travelling at a speed in excess of 30mph.
Cruise control should not be used in heavy traffic, or in adverse weather conditions such as heavy rain, snow and ice.
Reverse Park can retro-fit cruise control to most vehicles built after 2007. If you are in any doubt if it can be fitted to your car, call Reverse Park on 07979 353696.
The earliest speed control system was invented in the 1800s for use in steam engines.
The pre-cursor to modern-day speed control systems was invented by a blind mechanical engineer in 1949, in America.
How to operate your cruise control system
Your can engage your cruise control once you have reached your desired speed. This must be in excess of 30mhp. Once engaged, you remove your foot from the accelerator, leaving the cruise control to maintain the consistent speed you have selected.
To increase your speed, simply put your foot back on the accelerator until you have reached your new desired speed and reset the system.
The speed control will automatically disengage when you press the brake pedal, allowing you to respond safely to hazards or changes in driving conditions.
