Mit, neither the speedo or the digital display are off the GPS. Basically, you can code the car to show the corrected speed (ie +10% or whatever it is that the EU suggests that speedos should show) or true speed. Generally the car will come coded to corrected speed (on the speedo) and when you code the digital speed, it is usually uncorrected (ie true wheel speed) unless you specifically activate the BC_DIGITAL_KORREKTEUR (I think) line.

Make sense?
