    it's a no brainer, I had some programming issues at first with mine, once squared away it was an awesome unit.

    all the old wheel sensors will fail and the candoo is a good upgrade

    I installed on in my 2015 SVHO - like already said - no brainer and works like a champ - compared it to my garmin LMT1450 and speeds were spot on all the way to 67/68mph. IMO Yamaha should should include the unit in the package and eliminate the dopey and completely useless paddle-wheel design.

    My buddy ran one on a rxp and speedo don't go past 7mph. He was upset about that. Even tho he was goin faster on another GPS.

    you have to switch the speedo to km/h then recalibrate to show higher than 70 mph.

    I think that is the limitation of the gauge not the GPS unit.

    Mine is spot on with my Garmin handheld. The only time I use the handheld any more for speed is if I actually want to see tenths of a MPH.

    Switching to km/h is all fine. But that's not mph so what's the point of that. You wanna see mph not do the math to see what mph ur doing.

    There is no math involved, you don't understand. You calibrate the unit while the cluster is in Kph mode to make it show the true MPH number, in other word the number you see is MPH. You just disregard the tiny Kph next to the big number.
