  • Adding a Digital Speedometer to 2012 GL1800?

    I am experimenting with the slow race, and would like to add a highly accurate digital speedometer to my 2012 Gold Wing. Any suggestions?

    My standard analog speedometer is hard to read at very low speed’s. I can’t tell if I’m going 2 mph or 4 mph or what!

    Suggestions welcome. There must be some kind of plug and play option available out there. Thank you very much.

        Could a bicycle speedo work?

          Download the "Escort Live" app to your phone. its free and digital. you don't need a radar detector to see your speed.

            The issue with GPS-based speedometers is their refresh rate. Twice per second, four times per second...maybe once a second. Is that resolution good enough?

            A bicycle computer typically uses a magnetic pickup to sense wheel movement. There may be some challenges to get it to accurately sense speeds in that range.

              My speedo has a dead on "Dakota Digital".

              The escort live (app) is spot on.

                The accuracy of the app is good at three or four MPH?

                I just don't ride that slow to prove or disprove this.

                The errors will be magnified at either end of the scales - much like a torque wrench. This is true on the mechanical ones, but there's a electronic component involved, since Speedo Healer devices are used.

                My '06 really needed it; the '16 is about 1MPH off at felony speeds. Good enuf for my use.
