When swapping engines, transmissions, or any of the other manner of the mechanical adjustments that are frequent to project and race cars, it can be a pain to find a speedometer that works perfectly. Auto Meter has taken the headache out of that process with their line of GPS Speedometers.

These gauges have internal GPS engines and can compensate for signal fluctuation using inertial compensation via built in accelerometers.

“If you’re changing wheels, it is kind of hard to recalibrate your speedometer,” said Jeff King of Auto Meter. “With this, you won’t need to. If you are interesting in simplifying the wiring on your vehicle, this is an easy option.”

Already have an electric speedometer? No problem. Auto Meter also offers an add-on external module to convert your current gauge to GPS-driven functionality. They work with almost all electric speedometers and simplify the process of accurately calibrating your speedometer input – three wires are all that is necessary.
