The S in a circle means you have enabled the speed alert feature. This also comes in cars fitted with cruise control. Once a speed is set there is beeping if the speed is exceeded, to alert the driver.
I have a BF and it is enabled/disabled using one of the left paddles on the steering wheel, but I'm not sure how it's done on AUs. Who has an AU2 owner's manual out there?

yeah you should find the same little S symbol on your steering wheel volume control thing, its the top one which is seek or somthing like that...
holding it down with go into the speed alert mode
pressing seek again will turn it off
Volume up will increase the alert speed (in incriments of 5km/h)
Volume down will decrease the alert speed
you will see it all displayed on your odometer

oh and if you want to set she speed as show on the odometer screen just leave it a sec and itll save it (dont press seek as that will turn it of again:S)

Cheers Cam
