    GPS Speedometer

    So what are the options you guys have discovered for a GPS speedometer? Most of you use a hand held?

    I got a gps guage from cabellas for $120. I thought I could plug it into my hand held, but they are not compatible. Think the receiver is like $70.

    I was wondering if a GPS gauge setup was available. Very cool man, thanks!

    I will likely borrow a hand held (but not from the wife) and test the accuracy of my stock gauge and sender first. But that is good to know. I's gots future money to spend you know...

    This thread is old, but you can get a free GPS speedometer as an app for your smart phone. A good case and a secure mount is all you need.
