I don't like litres. The numbers are too big and scary
On my Navman 3100 you can.

It will also display volts which is handy to see if you are charging the battery. Best feature on the 3100 is the huge display of the speed - much easier to read when you are boucning around!!!

Update on Norstar

Got the unit earlier than expected, straight forward to fit, instructions all good. Used it today on the way over to Ribex for the first time and was really happy with it. It said I used 25.1 litres getting there and back, then on the way home I topped off the tank and need 24.1 litres to fill up again so calibrated the unit accordingly.

Straight out the box for $150 (shipped to the UK) this is a great item and well worth fitting.

It also got soaked today and showed no sign of leakage.

Mine was great for the first few soakings - now it packs up at the first sign of damp!!!

Cool. I'm just waiting for the same guys to send me back a shipping price for some of these speakers and I'll see if I can get the fuel computer sent over at the same time.

Is there any easy way you can seal them? Any obvious joins or the like that a small bead of sealant might help with?
