    therobzilla has his GPS right where he can see it from the drivers seat. that would work just as well. he was telling us elevation and MPH at Moab.

    Dan, there is a color version on Ebay now for $405.00. You will be a lot happier with the color. Easier to see.

    Good luck.

    A lot of regular GPS units have a screen to display mph. The ones we have at work at several different screeens that can be configured to show just a large mph display or the mapping screen with a small mph readout on the bottom. You can buy these for anywhere from $100-$150 and get the speedo capability you need, plus the full GPS capability.

    I paid what big pappa listed. I printed out a page like that from Dealtime.com and managed to get my local circuit city to match price.
