Default GPS Speedometer?

I'm looking at installing a GPS speedometer this spring and wanted to know if any one knows who has the best prices? I was thinking on the line of a Gaffrig analog. 3 3/8" size, 120 mph or 140 mph.

Thanks. Tim

I have the digital one & only kind to get over analog. When you are trimming you will know when you are gaining or losing speed by tenths.

I agree with Turbo. But any gps speedo you get is light years ahead of the old water pressure style.

Default GPS Speedo

Take a look at the Nordskog "Titan" series 120 MPH analog gps speedo.

I have had one in for a couple years and love it. It has a max speed recall, as long as you don't turn the ignition off.

It uses 6 blue LED's to light it up, which looks cool.

Also, I just replaced all of my Beedee gauges with the Nordskog 2 5/8" gauges.

Good Luck..........CJG.

I have a Gaffrig 120 MPH analog and love it. I agree with the precision of the digital units, but I don't care for the look on my dash. The analog matches the rest of the dials and just seemed to complete the dash better. Mine holds top speed unless you disconnect the battery or manually erase the memory in the gauge.

Either way, analog or digital, GPS can't be beat!!
