I like them.

The one with the fuel gauge and the turn signals and high beam would be my choice.
Enjoy The Ride!

Not sure if you know but Autometer makes GPS speedometers.

The GPS speedo certainly solves a lot of wiring or cable/drive gear issues.
The resolution on your the metric on is nice, but 140 kph isn't that fast, I wonder what happens when it's pegged...

But the incorporation of the fuel guage, signal indicators and the high beam light all in one gaugebis nice. But I'm afraid that the tach function for me needs to be bigger, and a matching sized tachometer would be necessary for use in my car.

Then I guess the question of function in action and reliability are all that is left. Anyone used a GPS speedo in their car (or boat as this is where this application of this technology started )?

I have Speedhut installed in my car and they work great. I did custom Text for my SR swap. You can find pix on page 6 in my build thread .

The speedo has a memory option that saves the Highest speed driven. Also will do a 0-60 time and I beleive Quarter mile. Has the std trip meter etc . Was also very easy to install.
