To all... and note to self... while trying to re-solder the tabs on the new battery for my GPS speedo, too much heat on battery causes battery to explode... FYI... just buy a new antenna... lol

Signal wire on my speedo was the orange. Unless you have an amp connector tool and a new connector and pins that fits the speedo it's easiest to cut the factory antenna harness and solder the orange wire to the NMEA output wire from your gps.

If you don't have a gps you can connect the antenna direct as I did.

Yes, the wire on the speedo side is orange. My speedo came with an extra connector that just had the signal wire. So. I plugged it in to the speedo and spliced the blue from the GPS to the orange on the speedo.

Going to the battery store this weekend to try and get the battery replaced. Do you guy's really think they have to be recalibrated after? I don't buy it?

I was just headed to your side of town to ask you Thanks for the help I hope this works! Good idea I will also check it, just can't see why a battery change would affect the unit.
