Default GPS Standalone Speedo

I've been lookin around on the net and can't find what i'm looking for.
I'm wanting to find a GPS Speedometer, preferably with a max mph recall.
I don't want a navigation style system just a speedometer.
Something small that is stand alone and don't have to hook into the bike,
and that i can make a bracket for if i want to mount it to the bars or somewhere. and be removable.
i'm just lookin for something to run on long trips when i hit towns that i know are anal about 1mph over the speed limit.
and no i don't want to nor am I going to mount a regular speedo.

i don't use nice phones, can't keep em, i can get a cheap nokia and keep it for years but get something cool or nice and it's broken within a month. but it does seem like there should be an app similar to what i'm talking about.

I bought this one for my bike and it works great...
Extremely simple hook up. The best thing is you get
rid of any speedo cables, sensors...etc.

thanks rotten, would be cool to mess with everyone and get the 180mph one... they might think it would really run that fast or assume its a tach and think you really have one hell of a motor at 18,000 rpm.

Yeah, the antena is a little magnet connected to a wire that plugs into the back of the speedo, and yes I cut mine down to about a foot and a half and ran it down the steer tube to the bottom tree.
