So are these things really exact, accurate, or just approximations? They don't seem to jive exactly the same with each other, at times anyway, so I wonder if some calibration may be needed for more accurate data. Just wondering.
It's pretty accurate, but the cruise control does range from 69-71 as I roll through the hills in that section. I have a speed display on a GPS enabled radar detector that I use to set the cruise at exactly 70 when I am approaching my start point. I don't bother with trying to read the needle at any time.
