    So after searching for a few days and pouring over the wiring diagrams in the FSM I determined nothing was really going to help me much. I wanted to leverage the stock speedo wires as much as possible. In the directions it mentions a black, purple, and blue wire.

    Wouldn't ya know that's exactly what the stock speedo wiring had.

    So on to installing the GPS speedometer. Needed to figure out what wires actually did for the old speedo. I have the FSM and the wire diagrams for the dash are pure crap. So I was turning stuff on and checking for hot wires. Found the blue is for the backlight of the gauge, purple is the ignition wire, black was the ground, and green was from the old paddle wheel style speedo.

    To get them out you pull out the orange wedge lock then use a small screwdriver to unlock those clips

    Need a hot constant so pulled it from the aux charging port and tapped into that.

    There's a notch on the gauge so I just notched out the center with a utility knife to fit it in. It has a back bracket that mounts with 4 bolts. Couldn't really get a picture of that. That is fairly self explanatory anywho.

    Nice write up. Where does the GPS sensor go?

    It's built in, part of the reason I went with this one.
