At last, a GPS Speed sensor
which can be considered something more. GPS technology offers many
benefits in today’s world: accurate speed information, precise location
tracking, repeatable information, and so much more. When Dakota Digital
set out to create a GPS receiver, it was never to create just a means
of driving a speedometer, but rather to extract as much useful
information as possible, making the value of the product unlike
anything else available.
The GPS-50-2 was
completely Designed and Built in the USA, specifically made for the
custom automotive market and the unique challenges which exist. Highly
advanced electronic and software design allow the GPS-50-2 to
work unlike anything else, with accelerometers and predictive software
to compensate for times when GPS inherently struggles: overpasses,
mountains, tunnels, heavy tree cover, large buildings, passing large
vehicles, etc. Unique electronic architecture provides for negligible
current usage when off, yet lightning fast start-up and signal
acquisition. Updating the speed information 10 times per second
provides tremendous accuracy, while the integrated omni-directional
antenna provides for a wide range of installation flexibility.
Want to use the GPS-50-2 to activate a cruise controI system?
No problem! A cruise control system requires a
great deal of resolution and accuracy, so adding the 600041 external
antenna will allow you to optimize the antenna mounting, while placing
the GPS-50-2 receiver anywhere you like!
When used in conjunction with
a Dakota Digital HDX, VFD3 or VHX Instrument system, a simple
connection to the control box adds accurate Speed information,
Compass heading, Altimeter data, and automatic Clock syncing, all with
fully automatic calibration! No DIP switches, no guessing, no
An Outside Air Temperature display is a common feature of many
modern vehicles, why not display this within your Dakota Digital
Instrument system? Simply add a SEN-15-1 sensor to the
GPS-50-2 input and you're done!
The GPS-50-2 is also
fully compatible with other aftermarket electronic speedometers.
Offering a user selectable output of 4k, 8k, 16k PPM signals and a
selectable signal type of a Sine Wave or Square Wave, the flexibility
is endless. While the GPS-50-2 is not designed to
control a shift computer or shift pattern of the transmission,
it is capable of supplying a 54,400 or 128K PPM signal to supply an ECM
to ease some of those unique transmission swap situations!
GPS-50-2 measures in at an easy-to-hide size of 4-3/4”x
2-3/4”x 1”, and is completely covered by a two-year warranty.
Compatible Dakota Digital
instrument systems consist of all HDX and VHX
Hybrid Digital/Analog system, as well as VFD3 systems
with a BIM-compatible black plastic
control module. Earlier instrument systems with an aluminum
control module will not be capable of the BIM
connectivity, however can be used with the GPS-50-2
for obtaining an accurate speedometer signal.
