Recalibrate Speedometer?

OK - so after 6 traffic stops and 2 citations since I've had my new tires on, I've decided I need to recalibrate the speedo on my truck to compensate for the larger tires. I know that power programmer does something like this but I'm not sure if they have one for a Tacoma. Any better ideas?

can't be done with the Taco. the best you can do is swap speedo gears depending on what you have now, tire size, gears, etc.

or, just spend the $80 and get the Dakota Digital

yes, but unless they have finally come out with one for Tacomas after '99, it won't work.
and they are around $160

Their application guide says it works for 98-03. So they must have updated it.
