I guess it depends on why you want it but I've got a Sigma 1009 that I use as a trip meter because mine will not reset.

They are cheap (<$20) and you can use a Radio Shack rare earth magnet stuck to rotor, at least on a K75S, as a pickup.

Works great and I always know how many miles I have on that tank of fuel.

... on my way to the MOA rally in St. Paul

Hello Nick, thanks so much for your reply and your recommendation. I'm a beginner and have much to learn.

No idea of which one is better. But I saw the right one in Kickstarter some days ago. It is a new product and is getting crowdfunding in Kickstarter.

You can search "InkCase Plus" in Kickstarter.com or check in the following link for more information: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...-android-phone

It seems it is a cool product. I'm considering to have one for my mobilephone.
