    Does anyone out there know of a "GPS speedometer" unit that can be had for under $100?? They are often used in boats but the only ones I found were several hundred

    Why not just get a GPS and a suction mount, then you can take it with you when you leave the truck?

    you can change all the buttons on the bottom... 40/50/60.. all those can be changed.. you click on which one you want to use and when you go over that speed it will turn red.... the background can also be white and numbers black.....other cool thing is the lil tabs.. elevation... speed at times.... also you can reset the counters.... use the software and it will keep track of your miles.. all of them..then you can calculate your mileage!!!!!!
    I saw this but havent tried it yet
