the 5mph on a single toggle sucks. I really hate holding it just to go 1mph. This is where Subaru failed to realize, who the heck sets 5mph on cruise, holding it isn't intuitive.Yes you can use cruise without the adaptive mode. I asked my concierge. I cannot remember the exact steps but it is in the manual also.
To make 1+ mph adjustments, you just HOLD up/down the toggle switch to adjust your speed. Not as convenient as the 1 mph toggle used to be because you actually have to watch the display to adjust any amount. But it is possible.
Hitting the toggle switch moves you in 5 mph increments.

I noted this in another thread but it bears repeating - they still have both! Just hold the toggle instead of quickly moving it and letting it go. E.g. hold it up and it will slowly climb by 1 mph - excellentSinging to the choir. I LOVED the 1 mph toggle on my 15 Outback. It was the first thing I complained about on the Ascent. With the 1 mph toggle, I didn't have to take my eyes off the road just boost my speed a little to get past a big truck. I could also set my cruise at 2-3 mph over the speed limit. The 5 mph is ok, but not at the expense of the 1 mph setting. They had both before and it was perfect.
I guess it's so that you can quickly jump to a different speed limit. while minor changes aren't as urgentAgree it should be reversed especially since I usually set cruise to around 7 MPH over.
Never mind my comment - I just realized you were lamenting the fact that you have to hold it for 1 mph vs. toggle for 5 mph (up-vote for that...)I noted this in another thread but it bears repeating - they still have both!

True, can't satisfy every customer but... typical industry standard is soft touch +1, hold will increment until you stop.I did like the outbacks dual mode toggle. soft toggle for 1mph and hard for 5mph. I will say coming from a car that only offers 1mph increments. I'd take the 5mph default over the 1mph any day. If im adjusting speed, esp. while in adaptive mode its going to be at least a 5 mph increment change more often than not. Just goes to show you cannot satisfy everyone every time.
Of course it will, but if you're stopped for more than 1 second you'll have to hit resume button or touch accelerator to begin moving. It should be 2-3 secs like some competitors, IMHO.Will the active/dynamic cruise control follow a vehicle in stop and go driving (pretty much every freeway in LA) ?
