[DML] Re: Fixed Sat Nav - help please (Delorean related)

When I had my Alpine GPS installed in 17167 at a local circuit city,
the guys realized in the middle of the installation that the D didn't
have an electronic speed sensor.  They told me they didn;t have the
part at the time but if I brought the car back in a week, they would
have it.  They didn't charge me extra for a crazy alpine speed sensor
that actually reads pulses from a spinning tire. (however,
installation was about 120$ if I remember correctly)  They mounted the
device in the luggage compartment and used a large magnet to magnetize
1/2 of the right front tire.  now the speed sensor sends a pulse any
time it senses the right front tire make a rotation.  The speed sensor
appears to work remarkably well when I am planning routes with the
GPS.  I should note however, that there really doesn't seem to be a
need to "magnetize" the tire as I have since changed tires and the
speed sensor continues to pulse with each tire rotation.  I have tried
running the GPS without the sensor insalled and it is really crummy
(you skip along the screen).
Hope this helps
