{ Description } we knew it would be slightly out, as 0 is at the position of 10, and 300 is at the point of 310, but that would only be out by a MAXIMUM of 10.

it should not be off by THAT much. benji coded in a debug when writing it, it puts out live values of the speedo to console, and they were close enough to correct. I don't know what you have outputting the speed there, but im pretty sure its not benji's debug code.

{ Description } Code is actually simple [taken off the wiki]


speedx, speedy, speedz = getElementVelocity (getPedOccupiedVehicle(getPlayerFromName ( "[PS]MAR" ) ))
actualspeed = (speedx^2 + speedy^2 + speedz^2)^(0.5)
kmh = actualspeed * 180

So it looks like its 40Km/h more than it should be
