I have dual gauges on my 2002 Outback. What is the best way to calibrate the speed's easily? I have those calibration knobs but do not know how to use them properly

GPS is the most accurate. When I bought my LSV the dealer told me to drive at 3000 rpm with 2 adults in the boat and set the speedos to 30 mph. I found this to be about 2 mph off compared to GPS. Just turn the knobs untill the speedos read what you want.

GPS only when there is no current such as a lake versus a river.

True. I'm on a lake so no current.

VA LSV, where are you located? I am in Mechanicsville, just outside Richmond.
