    Yeah, seems they can do what they like on the road. Who's going to pull them up?

    Every car i have owned has been about 10% out.
    To get a ticket for over 105 have to be going close to 120 indicated on the spedo

    I wonder who was more unsafe................bearing in mind the speed limit here used to be 100km until the week before Xmas when it dropped permently to 80
    Yea they did that a while ago in the buller gourge and killed a motorcyclist.

    Ah. but is it 10% out at all speeds, such as 20 30 50?.............Is it doing 10 whilst parked in your garage?

    I notice on a lot ofo the Youtube videos a stopped vehicle (equipped with a GPS system) often show it as moving ....sometimes up to 5.

    At first i thought that might have something to do with the earth's rotation but then realised that the satellite the GPS was using, is in an unchanging, fixed, stationary point to the earth

    54/55kmh on radar signs and gps when 60kmh on the spedo. ~100kmh when 110km on the spedo.

    Its definitely %. Its not constantly out by 10kmh

    But ‘they’ tends to/can indicate several.

    worst speedo we had was the Nissan x-fail , 100kmh on the speedo was 91 actual, changed the profile size on the tyres and it was accurate but holy hell, never so many electrical issues on a japanese vehicle !
