Speedometer button?

Hi guys,
Just looking for some quick advice. I bought my first mini yesterday, and I've been slowly learning what all the buttons do.however, there is one that baffles me. The manual that came with the car doesn't really explain it?
It looks like a needle on a speedometer, and is on my steering wheel controls and above my speedo in the car. Could anyone tell me what this is please? If it helps it's an 07 mini one convertible. Many thanks.

Most likely cruise control, you switch it on 1st then set the speed with the other buttons but it should show you that in your manual

Photo :-)

Hi thank you for the response, I took a photo of the button that confused me, if this helps? I can't find anything in my manual about cruise control, does anyone have any tips on how to use it?

I'm sure that's the button for cruise control. Click it on and you should see a similar emblem lite up on your big clock. Press the plus button and that should set it. You can then raise or lower the pre-set speed by use of your plus or minus buttons. If you press the cruise button again it will disengage the speed but keep the cruise on and ready for resetting. If you press the button twice, instead of once, it will shut off the cruise. At least that's how it works on my base '13.

Of course you could just have the steering wheel with the buttons and not the system, if someones fitted an uprated wheel at sometime?

That's cruise control buttons.
Easy to use, get to a speed your happy with press right hand side button, this turns it on, green light will pop up, then make sure your in 6th gear, then press left button and take button off gas pedal , and driving is made easy now
