Programmable Speedos Feature One-button Calibration

Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket offers VDO programmable speedometers with built-in microprocessor technology that allows enthusiasts to change wheel size, gears or differentials, and re-calibrate the speedometer with the push of a button.

The auto-calibration feature makes the speedometer ready to go in seconds, without the need for a complicated re-calibrating procedure. It offers one of the industry’s fastest and most accurate set ups.


No Extra “Black Box”

The automatic calibration technology in VDO programmable speedometers is neatly integrated into the unit’s circuitry and eliminates the need for a separate “black box” or additional module. This saves space and makes for a better and more reliable installation.

According to Jeffery Ross, instrumentation product manager at Continental Corporation, “We pioneered one-button programmability in VDO speedometers over 15 years ago, and along the way, have developed one of the most sophisticated and technologically advanced speedometer lines on the market. Continental now offers programmable speedometers in seven different styles and a choice of 3/18” and 3/38” diameter models. All of the speedos feature our exclusive integrated design and one-button calibration.”


Eight Different Instrument Series

VDO programmable speedos are available in Viewline, Vision, Vision Silverstone and Vision Chrome; Cockpit, Cockpit Royale, Cockpit White, Cockpit White & Chrome and Series 1.

One-button programmable speedometers will continue to be offered in future instrument series.
