    Digital speedo

    Has anyone fitted a digital speedo to their GSA LC?

    To me the standard analog one is next to useless.

    That's fine as long as you don't want to see the map. The figures are still very small. Unless I'm missing something.

    I had thought of using two sat navs one displaying the speed the other the map.

    What about the digital speed on the digital displays?

    You can display speed on the stock LCD and on the Nav V (presumably also the Nav VI) can display GPS speed in big figures on one of the map dashboards (actually there are several to choose from, but one is bigger). I use the latter all of the time, whether I have a route or not. It's absolutely fine. Frankly, I was only thinking yesterday how much the Nav V brings to the GSLC. I think it would be a lot less user friendly without that display and all its additional functions and data.

    OP is talking about the new 2018 models with the new TFT screen, I think, but honestly the Nav 6 is only a slight scroll of the wheel to go back and forward to maps and speed, I mean we do not look at the maps all along the way.

    OP mentions an analog speedo, but a digital speed reading can be selected on the pre TFT instruments if he looks through the manual...
