Haha, very fair price. Airguide left the speedo business about 99/2000. I have about a dozen Airguides and won’t wven consider selling a used one. I keep my chrome NOS in the AC! Any “decent” teleflex speedometer is probably $120 which isn’t up to par with Airguide.

Another option is to convert it to GPS. I'm going to do that to one of mine that has a damaged diaphragm.

Leave the old Airguides to the collectors - for a boat that is an everyday user, switch to PrecisionStar. Simple, easy swap and works GREAT!

Digital displays are for the birds... hard to read in certain lights and much harder to use in dynamic situations... give me a full sweep needle any day for skiing use. Converting to GPS (Airglide) is a great option but obviously you need a donor gauge and the appetite to spend ~$200 per to make the switch.

I have a nice original and a perfect pass which i am not interested in. I like things factory correct, as there is a certain symbiotic energy in it. I guess I would equate it to having the FM converter in the car in the 80s if anyone remembers how that looked!

Just like them...I am not good enough to tell 34 mph from 36!

   Whew, luckily I have avoided these dynamics situations.... sounds bad.

I have a PrecisionStar next to an Airguide. The digital is better at low speed, holds low speed like a GPS should and is the same as the Airguide at high speed without the adjustments needed to "dial it in". It is a useful solution, just not sexy...... I do like me an old school Airguide.

Tim, I can tell you about that.   My experimental airplane has a glass panel in it and you can not read anything if you have on polarized lenses sunglasses. Have to order non polarized glasses. Same as the gas pumps at the gas stations.
Keep it as original as you want it

Glad you said that I just thought it was me getting old.
