looked at getting a calibration box on Vandil as the speedo is waaay out and the autolec mob [the only ones that do it in tassie]said it could be upwards of 500 smackers [ ouch] ...then i had a brain wave why not buy a $100 gps and sit that on the steering column or somewhere ...thought their must be one where you can set the whole screen to show your speed ,,went to hardly normal and the salesman said they used to sell one called a navigator that showed a speedo dial on the whole screen for $99 but my luck they no longer have them.. has anyone got or know a brand that does this ...i have an older navman and it doesnt have that option and only shows current speed in the bottom corner ...???

You could get a "HUD" Head Up Display. They have GPS versions that display Klms or MPH. Some have a dual speed warning also.
See this one on ebay.

Other options:
Recalibration of a speedo should only cost about upwards of $150.00 from any reputable instrument repairer.
Also remember you can change the speedo cog on the end of the speedo cable. Also you use to be able to by a calibration adjustment box (done with a screwdriver) from the Castlemaine Rod Shop that fitted between the speedo cable and the gearbox.

I have seen a GPS speedo that sits on your dash with a digital readout it was designed for trucks to check your speed running of hills.
can chase it up if you like.

You should be able to touch the speed in the bottom left of the screen and it will take you to a new screen just for the speed and trip comp I didn't work it out on mine for years and mine is a nav man about 5 6 years old
