It is really difficult to find reliable info on this, but as general rules:

1) Indicated speed is normally higher than actual speed.
2) GPS is normally closer to actual speed than speedo.

I would love to be able to check both my speedo and GPS for accuracy! (Does that make me a geek?)

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.
Currently in martin999's garage:
2011 (11) VW Passat 2.0 TDi SE + options in Island Grey, 2011 (11) Honda CB1000R in Pearl Cool White... oh and a 2004 (54) Secnic II 1.5dCi Dynamique in Ottoman Blue !
