I like it alot. I use it to measure the speed of my runs and how long I drove during that run. I also like the life time odometer. I've gone a few miles so far. It is also quite accurate, by a test done by xrc mag. The mph was about 1 to 2 mph off, while a radar gun is 1+/- mph off.

wasup alberto.
If you have the meter perfectly calibrated and have no tire spin it should be okay but it will never be that accurate. For consistent truthful readings you need a radar gun.

how does it work?
to see how fast your car goes to you have drive it as fast as it will go and then imediatly pull it in and check it or can you finish your run and it tell you your top speed?

I have 4 of these now. Think it is a solid product. It is only as accurate as the person who sets it up though.
