Does anyone have any ideas on what handheld devices, whether Garmin or Magellan, can display the speed measurement fairly large on their screens? I need it to fix to a bike and kitebuggy so speed is the most important information for me.

You have to bear in mind that most Garmin and Magellan screens have other information on them, and certainly some of the screens like Garmi eTrex's or Geko's can be rather small.

Here's an image from an eTrex, but most Garmin's will have this similar screen.


To have a large screen you'd need something like a Garmin GPSMap or Magellan Meridian/SporTrak.

Magellan Merdian Color has a speedo dial, quite large, and on the same screen four customisable fields. i.e Heading, ETA etc. Speedo dial changes ranges automatically to give best display.

I have a scan of the dial but not sure how to attach?

Dave,

Just thought that Pocket GPS have a review of the Meridain Color which shows the speedo display.

Yeah there is at http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/magellanmeridiancolour.php

It the block of images it's the top left image, it's not that good a speedo though (IMO).

Thanks guys for all your help. I went for the Garmin Etrex Venture in the end as the trip computer has a 'Big Numbers' feature allowing me to show 4 sub sections larger on the screen.
