    Default Autometer GPS

    Has anyone used Autometer's GPS gauge? Have you had any problems with it?

    Default Yes

    I used it in my old CP. Had a hole to fill in the dash so there it went. I thought it was pretty cool. Just make sure you get good (solder) connections on the tiny wires. I had a wire come loose and then obviously it didnt work. But when connections were good it seemed to work fine. Also a friend told me you arent supposed to cut the wires to length from the receiver. Dont know how true that is because I cut mine down before I knew better and it still worked.....

    Same deal. I had a hole to fill. I've had it for 3 years with no problems.It reads the same as my Garmin hand held.

    YES! sent it back, don't believe they touched it, did not read or start up correctly, now doesn't work at all.

    A friend has one in his HTM, never work worth a chit, till he got the a newer GPS reciever, seems the early units the connector could slip on backwards, and / or not make good connection, and fall out. Since replaced it works well.

    I have gone through 4 of them in 1 year. Autometer is great about replacing them but they don't seem to last fo me.
