I just put the new Trail Tech speedometer kit on my Zspray. I have the Forerunner that I took off sitting in my toolbox. Let me know if you are interested in buying it?

Sure I'll agree.

After all if you really don't give a darn about calibration or doing a proper application Why even have a speedometer? Why even calibrate in the first place? Just as long as sales/production quotas are met no one cares if the job is done correctly.

I had been on the fence for a long time and always stayed with the ForeRunner. One day when I was ordering parts I decided to pull the trigger. I do some bigger properties and like the bigger display and the fact that I don't have to worry about turning it off. That said, the ForeRunner does a nice job now that I have had both. Give it a minute or so to acquire signal when you are starting and remember to turn it off and it is very reliable.

Sorry i forgot to reply, turfnerd hooked me up with his old unit- thanks bud, it works good, u guys were right it eats batteries , bought a box of aaa batts off internet for 5 bux and keep em on truck. He gave me the handlebar mount also, not sure if they come from garmin with that or not but intall was easy.

And yes u push the arrow button on it and it moves the speed display to the big upper digits, easy to see.

This was a great solution, thanks all
