Default Nordskog GPS speedo. "Awesome"

I just got back from the lake. The Nordskog digital speedo is really sweet. I mounted the receiver under the deck and it seems to work fine. The tach, compass, volt meter, are cool features also. I saw a top speed of 97.8 mph!! The fastest speed I have seen on radar is 95.8 mph. I wasn't radaring today so I can't compare the two. I will do that soon. It figures that the recall feature isn't working right or I don't know how to use it. I was pumped about taking a picture of the peak number and posting it on OSO for some documentation. When I got the boat home and hit the recall button it said 0 mph. Oh well it just gives me a reason to hit the lake again real soon. I have the unit powered off of my key switch. Does it reset automatically when it is turned off? Maybe Nordskog can shed some light on this for me. I highly recommend the product.

Default GPS Speedo !!

Hey Wette !!

I have the same GPS, only in the analog version. I agree, it's the S**T. It took me a few moments to figure out that the recall only works until you shut the ignition off. So you can really only look at the max speed after a run......Hope this helps.....Have fun !!!!

Thanks for the info. After I thought about it I figured that's how it is supposed to work. I recall seeing a boat at a boat show with the recall set on the last top speed. They must have had the power wired directly to a hot wire so the GPS doesn't power down. I will just bring my camera with me next time and hopefully I will be able to hit some big numbers again. Like I said it's a good reason to run hard and see what she can do.

Hey guys,
Thanks for all the kind words. We think that this gauge is pretty nice also. It looks great in the boat Wette Vette, yours to Mike!
Chrisstopher has the reigh answer on the High Seed Recall. It is only good until you turn the key off ( so try to take the camera in the boat with you somehow) That is a great top speed.
