Alan, does that device know the speed limit where ever it is on the road or do you have to set a speed limit and it just beeps or flashes when you exceed the speed you set?


The latter.   I normally have my iPhone mounted with a Satnav app running for speed limits.   I must admit it also has the drawback that there is no built in odometer.

The speedometer on the chinese set works by GPS! Never heard of that before but does mean you need to site the included GPS antenna somewhere.


I fitted one of these (https://www.ebay.co....UK/153123570619) over a year ago as a temporary fix when my speedo cable broke.   The sensor is built in, it just needs a 12V supply.


It's still going strong over a year later (and 2 MOTs) and I love it.   Best £18 I ever spent.

No, at idle both the rev counter and the logging software read 1000 rpm.  Are you saying there is a 1000 rpm difference ?

Cold right elbow seems to be inevitable


Fit wind deflectors.   No more cold elbow and in fact I never use the doors any more either.
