Hi all,

(Daves satnav) is fantastic. Used it a couple of times and it works a treat. it also tells you your current mph, which is 3-4 mph slower than the cars speedo.

How accurate is the TomTom?

Very. I had a tom tom and a road angel running at one stage and they said the same, whilst like you're finding, the speedo is 3-4 mph

Its 3-4 mph out on every speed- from 30mph to 70!! Was your speedo out damian? I know that speedo is always out, but was surprised at 30mph....

I suppose every car on the road is out......

The A4 is on standard wheels too...because that can make a difference

Get some 19s on stevee, that might get the speedo reading right[:D]

Yep, most speedos are out by about 10% supposedly. So with the TomTom, you can take advantage of those extra few mph!!

True 19s might help!

Would you put your liscence on the line though by driving through a speed camera with 65 on the dash and 60 on the Nav? (in a 60 limit)
