    does the speed update, or is it a fixed reading of what you were doing at the time the buttons were pressed

    cheers

    I tried this in my car ages ago and found that the speed reading is about 10KM/H out when comparing it to my speedo. Does anyone else have this problem or am I special like my mum always tells me

    The digital reading is the figure from the ECU, it is the accurate one, as the analogue readout on a speedo is always over-reading

    This sounds cool, is there any way you could implement this to make your car into a digital speedo?

    Steve,

    It's quite hard to press them both at the same time.

    I suspect that you have a similar problem to me in that with quite fat fingers, it's harder, and we end up pressing one button just before holding both
