    Hello all, im looking at getting a Speed Sensor Calibrator to recalibrate my speedometer and was wondering if anybody has used this devise before. Id like some of your input on this before i blow $160.00 on it.

    How was the installation?
    Im having a hard time understanding how it works with just a flip of a switch. So how exactly does it work?
    Did it perform like it should and give you a true reading on your speedometer?

    Also if you have any recommendations to other similar products please let me know!!!

    I've had one for about 7yrs now and it works well.
    Installation is pretty easy.
    Gives you true reading on your speed and odometer - I checked it with 2 different GPS units.
    I haven't "filpped" the switch since you'd only do that when changing tire sizes.
