This was a Speedometer/Odometer app I found in the PlayStore:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...olniks.niksgps

There are several others that will do the same thing.

I zeroed the trip meter on my PT, then started the app and drove a mile and stopped, the trip meter registered 1.0 miles and the app measured 1.01 miles and the app was using 13/17 satellites to get it's info. I did this same test at least 5 times with the same results.

The PT instruments are accurate enough for general use as normal autos the instruments are not calibrated and certified, unlike police vehicles which must be 100% accurate. Use the trip odometer because it measures to tenths of a unit, and this app will measure to hundreths of a unit. You can also change the units of measure from U.S. to metric. So you should be able to see what your PT is measuring.

I would guess it divides the speed your computer, but not speedometer sees. Would possibly explain your odometer thread.
At that I did not think. It could be an explanation. I have to find out exactly how it works ...

Also nearly 150MPH is probably more like 128MPH..
There ARE other factors why the factory MPH is set standard at 128MPH.
But you most likely at least raised your PT Cruise to factory speed levels.
I did not do anything in the car. I bought it with that installed module. And I'm sure the car has exceeded 128 mph ...

I cant imagine doing 150 in my PT
I guess maybe if the roads was really flat and straight
To me that is getting up in that You really better know what you are doing at that speed I can imagine a deer running out in front of a PT at 150

This is just slightly over 110 (test run caused by good music.
but ya 130 is more then enough in a PT 150 is just stupid!




And a quick short run to 85+ is always exhilarating in a PT Cruiser.

I have not seen a deer in romania for years. Only at the zoo. I was driving on the highway, the speed nedle was betwin 220-240 km/h. We are not using miles, 150 mph is a quick conversion.

The needle of the mileage reached between 220 and 240.
Next time i'l take a picture. Yesterday i was single in the car...
WOW

I know you could have done it, and you may already have, but I went ahead and sent an email to the company that manufactured the module installed on your PT, and I included your pic of it. I'll let you know what they respond back with what the module controls.

Is your PT a right-hand or left-hand drive?

Yesterday I drove the car with nearly 150 mph. It means that this module works. I'm curious if this module can negatively affect the car. I hope it doesn't do any damage...
See the pictures
Hi, can you tell us where you're from ?
Disassemble the board and post the photos of the circuit, if anything is identifiable I can find out how it is working.

I recently ordered a Sykes Stage 1 with speed limiter removed, and I recently ordered a set of 160MPH rated tires, so I'll have to test it eventually. I won't be going over 225KM/h with these tires.
