So the Govt lecturing us on why the 2-3 buffer was dropped "That speed is the limit - it is not appropriate to have a buffer" actually signs off on a manufacturing standard of +- 10%.
Here, that problem is solved simply by removing the '-'.
So the speedometer always has to over-read by some amount, I'm surprised yours isn't the same.

The quoted US spec may be old. I'm given to understand that with newer cars here the speedometer may never read slower than the car is going.

Good point. I think I saw somewhere that the 900S has that feature - must chase that up.
But I have used a 3790Nuvi Garmin GPS in the 1998 Ford for many years with the Ford Cruise Control.
Great results. Dropouts in the tunnels though.

10 years, many dashcams
For speed i use the Waze like local app ( speed traps ) on my phone, i normally have that on for longer drives, not cuz i speed on purpose, but i have no problem drifting both up and down in speed when i drive.
So +10 or -10 km/h are no problem to do some times, which can be problematic as i do my best to be right on the sped limit.

Good example in my latest upload, i don't know why but right here on this 80km/h road i often speed a little, and at first i taught it was due to the road slope a little, but that's not it cuz i tend to speed here in both directions if i am not careful.

BUT ! i dont want any speed warning bing or bongs, i just need to get my head out of my ass and pay attention,,,,,, and it have also gotten better on that stretch or road, but still room for improvements.

It is old - 2005.
But the legislation might be current and thus still enforceable.
Never underestimate the stupidity of bureaucracy.
I mentioned it to illustrate the disconnect of holding the motorist to a standard or speed limit yet knowingly not provide the motorist with the instrumentation to do so.
