I have the original wiring in my 2015 Yamaha. I have the gauge that TV installs.
Thanks.

Just go on Amazon and do a search for a GPS speedometer. You will find several different models. They plug into a USB port or convert from a cigarette plug. This is a fast accurate and easy solution that needs no tools.

The guy who advertises in the Monday paper installs a Bell Dashboard 150 for $85. His name is Jack and he lives near Pimlico Rec Center. 352-643-0045.

I also have a Caddie Buddy from Amazon. $36. It's held in place on the steering wheel by the scorecard holder. It holds your phone and flips up so you can still use the scorecard. Works well.

Are you able to post a picture or let me know what it is that was installed. I’d really appreciate it and thanks

Not trying to nitpick but that Striker Speedo is actually not factory installed. It is put on by The Villages Cart Store "build shop" located down off of highway 44 on Signature Dr. across from Sparr Building Supply.

Probably true IF you buy a cart from The Villages Cart Store. I did not. I just know I ordered mine with the cart from Yamaha and it was there when I picked it up.

If you use this person, be aware of what you are actually getting. His ad displays an Ex-Ray type speedometer. What he actually installs is a basic bicycle speedometer. There is a big difference in price and functionality.

This is the speedometer installed by Jack the newspaper guy and Caddie Buddy sold by Amazon held in place by the scorecard holder. It flips up so you can still score. Very happy with both.
