Hi all. Just got a cx3 gt sport. Decent car, however I quite like changing lanes and don't feel the need to be told off for it.

I keep forgetting to turn the system off then get that horrible bassy noise. Is there anyway to turn it off permanently?

Your not being told off for it,it's just warning you if a car is close enough that you may have problems if you switch lanes at that moment.
I never thought about turning it off so I can't help you there.

there should be a button by your left knee with the image of a car getting out of its lane that when you press it will display on the dash the lane departure system is off. The system wont turn back on unless you press that button again or lose battery power.

Yes it will on the 2017s Snoog. My new CX-5 does it and I find it irritating too. The CX-3 and the CX-5 previously stayed where you left it but the newer ones default to on every time. An additional problem with that on the new one is that it projects quite large logos onto the windscreen. I don't mind it on long motorway trips but I tend to straighten the bends out on quiet twisting lanes as long as I have a good view and the damn thing is rumbling away. With the Safety Pack, it tries to pull you back too. I prefer the old setting of leave it as you left it.

Wait.... Someone from Chicago that knows what a turn signal is? You are a rare specimen, my friend! Most Chicago folks (and D.C., too) consider use of those as a sign of weakness. lol

Agreed, lane departure warning should not activate if turn signal is used.

That said, if you're smoothing out the corners, then I would suggest

changing the warning from rumble strip to beep and turn volume to lowest.
It's in the safety tab.

It's not like the USA here on our tiny island. We have lots of little lanes that are full of bends and for those, I don't want my steering constantly trying to pull me back into lane. I've got a bit of a routine now, lock the doors with the awkward rotary door lock, turn off the lane departure and turn on the auto locking.
