Vdo gps sender and vdo electronic vision plus speedometer

i just installed the vdo electronic speedometer vision series and the vdo gps sender. I don't know that I am impressed so far. The speedo seems slow to react. I set the speedo for 200k pulses and have the gps on top of the dash. Anyone have a similar experience? I hooked the gps green wire to terminal 8. Speedo is 437-158.

I have pretty much the same set up. Just wired the connectors for both the speedo and GPS unit yesterday. I left the GPS harness pretty much full length so if it doesn't work by the rear view mirror I can run it to the plastic vent cover on the left fender.

On a side note, are we sure it's a slow reacting speedo and not a slow accelerating Defender?

Did you program speedo to 22k pulse per mile?

Not yet. Its raining pretty steady here so that killed my momentum on this project.

The instructions I have say 200,000 pulses.

I left off a zero. I reconnected to constant power. Speedo seems to work pretty good. VDO tech support is awesome.

Speedo to constant power or the GPS unit? Did you use 220,000 or 200,000?

Im wired to constant power for GPS and IGN 12v for the speedo.
