While in my car today, I noticed this icon for the first time. It appears on all of the dash screens just to the right of the tach.

Moving the car did not change anything. Anyone know what it is?

There is a phone App, Virtual Guide, for the G series Genesis that I thought might provide the answer; but nope, no hints there. Do you have any after market addons on you Genesis? Maybe something to do with performance that may have added the goodie? Or, a question for your local Genesis salesman???

Looks like one of those pregnancy test things. What you been up to?

While I am waiting for Genesis Canada to reply - I found this - in the HEAD UP DISPLAY section of the owners manual - the icon is very similar, but without the R-Y-G symbol on top.... and on the dash!..... I didn't know the car could sense this stuff.

UPDATE: Genesis Canada just called me. We had a long conversation about it. The guy I worked with has been talking to Genesis techs.

However...................................................................... they don't know! They said that it does resemble the HUD icon for Road Signs - but how did it "sense" a road sign since I was in my Garage? And the HUD icon (see above) only has part of what I am seeing on my dash.

They asked me a lot of questions, but the mystery continues. They did state clearly that they have never seen this before! I guess I am special.

They will continue to investigate. I did volunteer that I would gladly allow them to swap my 2017 for a 2021, but I don't think that is going to happen. :rolleyes:

On a serious note, I did tell them that I consider a "false alarm" warning to be somewhat serious.

They will continue to dig into it and promised to get back to me with either more questions or a better answer.

Looks like a red light camera icon for Korea. They have a speed camera icon too.

UPDATE: Just heard from Genesis Canada (they called).

1. It is a red light camera warning as we suspected.
2. It should NOT be in the instrument panel, but should be in the HUD
3. It is controlled by a menu choice: "Traffic Information". (I currently have Traffic information toggled off, so that I don't see the damn icon)

Next Steps

a. Find a red light camera to see if that triggers anything.
b. They are going to take a G80 and test this as much as they can
c. I may have to make a service appointment and report this - let the dealer try to fix it.

This is fun! :grinlaugh:

"Menu choice" Where? How? Is this on the steering wheel? Or from the screen? I've got a '18 G80 Ultimate.
Danke!

Apple and Microsoft pay rewards to people who spot glitches in their software. Maybe a box of Tim Horton donuts is in your future, Richard?

I found it by toggling through the instrument panel menus - it's a sub menu in there but I am sorry I don't remember exactly where

Sigh.... I remember donuts ........... from a VERY long time ago.

I have told them that I will gladly accept a 2021 G80 in swap as compensation....... I will let you know when they respond.

Enjoy. Please let us know if it breaks! Remember, it is SUPPOSED to show an icon on the HUD (which I think is an error in the Owners Manual).
