Nitro Speedo

I would like to know if there is a speedometer out there besides the garmin GPS that will show max speed on a rc nitro car that wont cost an arm and a leg.
I have a bryton GPS but it won't show max speed unless you are moving.

traxxas had a system out there, I think it works with the iphone. I'm not sure though, I've just seen it in a passing glimpse. Also I think one of the older spektrum transmitters had that option also, it would also display temps and such.

Anything not GPS based isn't very accurate since tire diameter changes wildly at speed.

There's phone apps that will do the same, but then you need to put your phone onboard.
