Recommended Posts

Can anybody recommend a good dash gauge replacement kit for my 1985 Malibu Skier? GPS vs. standard speedometer?

Has some Air Guide stuff as well as the above mentioned gps Airguide stuff.  As far as tach oil fuel etc.  Hardin Marine has some decent electical guages for a reasonable price.  They aren't as nice as Autometer, but a good value in my opinion.

@jonesboy6:  One thing to keep in mind if you are considering a GPS conversion; pitot signal speedos give you speed across the water or hull speed on water, GPS will be speed relative to earth rotation or ground speed.  If you are using the speedos to have an accurate speed across the water, GPS will be off by amount of current (if that is something important to you).
