250 mph Average Speed!
« on: November 25, 2014, 07:15:38 pm »
Noticed tonight on the way back from work that my average speed was reading 250 mph! I watched it for the next 20 mins or so and it alternated between 31 mph and 250 mph about 5 times. As it was on the Trip 2 screen, I swapped to the Trip 1 screen and back - it still happened.

Anyone else noticed this......?

I look at the average speed sometimes on longer rides to see how my time is going and estimate arrival time. Speed always seems right, no major fluctuations like you are reporting. Perhaps the average speed takes a little while to settle down, just ;like the distance to empty estimate does.

I think that the average since last trip reset rather than even per journey therefore you must have been doing some amazing speeds to get to 250 average i know the trophy is fast  :156:  but if it is fluxuating at all it must be in error even if you could do that speed.  not ever looked at average speeds so dont know if it is a common problem.  I do check the top speed on the sat nav everyso often before resetting it so no one else can check  :016:

Sorry for asking the obvious,
but are you sure it was Average SPEED and not Average MPG that you were looking at ?

I can't think of any reason, other than a fault,
that would give you an Average SPEED of 250 MPH !

Are you saying it would be normal to read 250 avg mpg?

... That would be nice wouldn't it ?  :156:

No, I'm not saying that would be "Normal", but it would be technically possible, if, for example,
the gauges were reset, and then you immediately coasted down a long hill,
whereas to achieve an average of 250 MPH, the hill would have to be near vertical !  :745:

I think the most likely cause would be faulty electronics / sensor(s) that need resetting / replacing.
