VDO makes a similar set up. I think I am going that direction. I have Viewline Onyx aux gauges, and I want to convert to their speedo, tach and fuel gauge.

A previous owner installed a Haneline gage set in my car around 2008, because of the M20 conversion.  There's a GPS antenna on the left side of the dash.  The car was shipped across the country (arrived Saturday evening) and I live in a hilly area (Columbia River Gorge).  The previous owner (in FL) mentioned that it could take a couple of minutes to lock on.  I drove it for an hour that evening and another 30 minutes the next day (to the top of a hill where I got a good southern horizon) before I first got it to lock on and give me speed and odometer readings.  It then worked consistently the rest of that day.  This morning I drove it for almost an hour to work and it never did lock on.  Fortunately, I know that 75 mph is 3,500 rpm, so I can watch the tach.  My phone and Garmin bicycle and car GPS units don't have any trouble in this terrain, but this one is almost useless for me.  I have what I think is the sender on the bottom of this page.  I haven't decided whether I want to pay $110 to see if the other one works better, but that may be my best option.

Maybe the $170 one from that other site is better.  It still seems like a magnet on the driveshaft and pickup in the tunnel would work better and should be much cheaper, but there would need to be some sort of converter for the pulse rate.

Do any electronics types know if this Garmin GPS receiver could be used with the Intellitronix position to pulse converter I already have?
