Not Your Commoner Speedometer

GPS Speedometer $199

No external GPS is required for the GPS Speedometer from Faria, because information is gathered from an internal GPS antenna. The speedometer is made to match an existing standard 4-inch hole in the instrument dash and comes in many speed ranges, up to 80 mph, 130 kph, and 50 and 70 knots. The speedo­meter uses a 48-channel GPS receiver, and the speed data is displayed by an analog pointer. It works on slow-moving leisure vessels where pitot tubes fail to work. The dial face is lit by a premium LED system, and boaters can design their own custom interface graphics to suit their tastes.
