The EMIC additionally offers a flip sign ON warning that may generate repetitive chimes to point {that a} flip sign has been lively constantly for 1.6 kilometers (1 mile) with the car velocity better than 22 kilometersper- hour (15 miles-per hour). Vehicles constructed for markets apart from the United States and Canada have a revised distance threshold of 4 kilometers (2.49 miles) for this function. The chime will proceed till the flip sign enter turns into inactive or till the car velocity message signifies that the velocity is lower than 22 kilometers-per-hour (15 miles-per-hour), whichever happens first.
