Digital Speedometer is Accurate
 
Thursday we took delivery on our ordered 2014 JGC Overland (with V8 and ORAII). Yesterday I drove the Jeep with my old Garmin Nuvi where I could see it to compare the Jeep's digital speed readout against the Nuvi reported speed. Result: Both agree as close as I could tell. So, the Jeep is displaying accurate speeds. Nice to know, especially since the combination of the Hemi and air suspension results in going faster than it feels like.;)

You could have just sped through a radar trap. I'm sure when you go to court you could insist on the date the radar gun was calibrated. :-)

Nice to know. There is usually a discrepancy, and to my knowledge the accuracy is allowed to vary up to 5%. You may find that as the tires wear the accuracy degrades.
