Be careful what you say about the Yanks when it comes to Sat-nav - they have the job of updating the satellite clocks 2-3 times a day.

Hi Tazzy,i do release where you are coming from and i think its just the system itself and as Horatio has already said it is no way accurate well not 100% thats for sure,my Espace from new came fitted with 15" wheels with tyres 205/55/15 94v ExtraLoad and then i changed them for Aftermarket Alloys 17" with tyre size 205/45/17 94v ExtraLoad and with some wheel and tyre converter online worked it out for me with these wheels fitted and doing 30mph iam actually doing 28.5,

Well getting back to the story in hand it does seem to go up or down in segments and after time driving with it every day you soon get used to it,hope this helps you cheers Donald

We have been without a car for over a year, but a couple of weeks ago I treated myself to a 1999 T Grand Espace with all the extras. Including the V6 engine. I too can relate to the problem you are experiencing, however I think it is probably more to do with modern LCD displays rather than a faulty unit.

The only thing I can suggest is what I've done and use the cruise control in areas which have speed cameras.

Besides I'm much too busy watching the bars on the fuel gauge vanish to worry about what speed I'm doing.
