Sat Nav arrival time

I am noticing that the arrival time suggested by the sat-nav is wildly optimistic. Has anyone else noticed this and is there a fix?

Thanks in advance

Actually, yes there is. Drive faster.

Seriously, though that is interesting. My 520d E60 is always quite pessimistic and the predicted arrival time gets quite a bit sooner (half an hour on a 2.5 hour trip) as I bomb along.

Is there anything in the F30 parameters that will let you alter default highway speeds (like some portable units)?
