As a driver, you shouldn't have to rely upon a third-party tech solution to determine the applicable speed limit. If anything more than the Mk1 Eyeball is required, then the limit is inadequately (or confusingly) signed, imo.I do, however, find Waze to show the correct speed limit at all times (I am assuming the same applies to Apple Maps and Google Maps, but I don't use these regularly).
One of the perverse effects of the relaxation in the signing requirements is that speed limit terminal signs can now be totally obscured by vegetation yet the limit remains enforceable. Not so much of an issue in cities perhaps, but in rural areas where there are often transitions from National Limit to 30mph, and the 30mph section has a regular system of street lighting (so no need for repeaters), then a driver can easily be unwittingly travelling at double the limit which is totally inappropriate.
