Accelerometers. It's basically like the old G-Tech.

The old Rev/Speed meter used to derive its info from the vehicle speed sensor in the transmission. It allows you to calibrate it for different tire sizes and to diasble the speed cut. I've had mine for years now; no complaints.

The new unit from A'Pexi seems to do the same stuff, but has an optional accelerometer that you can buy to give you further information about the car like lateral acceleration and HP calculation. The thing that makes any of these accelerometer systems more accurate is the correct input of your car's weight, including driver. If you can, go weigh the vehicle at a truck stop with scales or find someone with some race scales who's willing to help.
