which one would you believe?

a speedo reading well in excess of the actual road test speed , or the reading of a sat nav, out on monday i actually saw well over the speed stated in a recent road test, but it was also well out on the sat nav which also measures speed, question is how accurate are sat nav speed readings, it seems to be pretty accurate according to the car i drive until it gets way above anything that is legal.

not a bad couple of lads, very friendly and they have some real good stuff about them, prices are a bit high but they do have a barter if you fancy it, they did a deal with a mate of mine last year on a harley  he realised shortly afterwards he firkin hated the whole harley thang, he went back cap in hand, unfortunately the had flogged his bike in the week it was in the shop, but fair play to them they gave him what his bike was worth and in cash and took the harley back f.o.c based in royton nr oldham town centre easy access from the motorway.
