For what ever reason, it wouldn't stay on. (was using a gopro cord) Had to switch to a cord with a resistor in it, and it worked just fine. My main reason for put it on was to see just what the speedometer reading was a different speeds. What I found out was anything 45 or less it was just 3 miles per hour faster and anything above 45ish it was 5mph faster.. (at 45 I was doing 42mph, and at 55, I was doing 50mpg. The Garmin is mounted with an suction cup mount, and it stayed put up to 154mph, which was 149mph. LOL

If I was you I would put a safety leash of some kind on it. I have a suction mounted camera on my car windshield, which tends to drop off from time to time especially when the weather is hot.

I really mounted it to see what my speeds were. Not going to use it for directions, and most likely it will never see "The Beast" again.

Only 5 mph off at 149 is much better than I expected. I've got some bike garmins. I'll have to try that sometime. Don't know if I can find the combination of: stretch of road, no cops, and cajones to hit 149, nevermind 154. 🤣

I have a place on I-75 near me that I got 159mph, was messing around with a BMW Z4. Started at 100mph at 1 mile to exit, it took less than 15 seconds to got to 159 in 6th gear roll on. It started to got a little lite in the front at 155mph plus, so I back out of it. I also a have a taller screen then stock, so that might had help in the lite front end.
