I went through mine a few years ago. Not much of a write up, but better than nothing.

If you search Airguide you will find a bunch of threads.

Did you change them to black on white? Did they look brand new? Mine work great, just starting to get faded...

I will say this, realizing it's not topic for your intent.. the PerfectPass Three-Event GPS unit is the ticket... It's pricey but it's a great feature for skiers... I had to save up some milk money but it was worth it...

Those GPS speedos on Classic Works' site made me think of the PerfectPass...

I just took them apart, cleaned them up and put them back together. New o-rings came from the local Ace Hardware cardboard parts bin. I repainted the needles too.
