I would have thought that keeping the sender attached could be a problem. Might be easier to buy a cheap/second hand sat nav as these usually display speed and should be accurate

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Dont know if the magnet would stay on the wheel ?
I had a part time job once driving an old ford tranny with no speedo , I picked a "speed camera detection system" !!! from a local supermarket which was selling them cheap £25.00 I think . It plugged into the cigar lighter socket and told me where the speed cameras were, didnt bother with that side of it as the traConfusedalut:nny wouldnt do anything over 50. It gave me the speed the sat nav. system thought I was doing . It stuck on the dash with a magnet and worked quite well. about 2"x3" or what ever in millimeters.

Is it not illegal to drive a car with a broken speedo,which can incur a fine ? I thought the only exception was if the speedo broke during a journey when you are stopped by Police and you inform them that you intended to repair it before starting your next journey.Sorry for being pessimistic but....just make sure.:S

Yes, it is illegal to drive a vehicle without a means of speed measurement, thats why I bought a device that would measure speed.

Not sure if mentioned above, but a sat nav will give you a rough speed for the time being.

Yeah, Philip thats what I thought-it has to be a Speedometer fitted to vehicle. I just wanted to help in case there was any chance that anyone could be penalised for only using other means of measuring speed of vehicle.
