I did the same, but I found two problems. Number one is mounting it on the cart and number two it drains my battery very quickly.

The pictured speedometer is a Cat Eye Velo 9. Cat Eye is the brand leader for bike speedometers. The Velo 9 is the cheapest one they make . It is 29.95 on Amazon. If you have average skills these are easy to install as a DIY project.

Being able to gauge your speed, whether it be a mounted speedometer or a smart phone app...can save a person a lot of money.

Places like going south on Morse (downhill), where it is easy to quickly and inadvertently exceed 20mph (driving electric or gas carts) and get caught by the cops that often hide at the postal station on the west side of the road...can lead to an expensive lesson.

I know two people that found this out...the hard way.

Ah the speedometer is for those who go faster than the speed limit allows.

I still don't understand why the additional 6-10 mph is so important/necessary.
Adding risk to those who have a legal cart.

Falls in the category of rolling through stop signs and speeding in automobiles.

Something does not compute. Retired folks with all the time in the world....always in a hurry!!

Not everyone lives their life in slow motion. There are times that you are in a hurry and don't want to be late. Needing a bathroom is one that comes into my mind.

I bought a CAT Velo9 Speedometer for the golf cart. My husband has the Velo7 on his. I need someone to install the speedometer on my golf cart. As you said, someone with light skills can do it. Problem is apparently I don't have the skills. I've tried but is confusing how and were place the magnet. I've read the instructions multiple times but is not working. If anyone could come and help would be appreciated. Thanking in advance.
