GPS Speedo?

I have been having issues with intermittent speed readings on our Raymarine ST50 and 2092? paddle wheel speedo. As you will all know, its obsolete equipment and I don't want to cut a new hole in the hull for a replacement paddle wheel.

I'm not so much of a racer but in light winds it can be difficult to feel minor speed changes when trying to trim the sails, hence I miss my speed display. Late last season I did try an app on my Iphone but the screen times out and the update rate was too slow.

I'm looking for a "cheap" GPS speed display hand held or panel mount that will work in the 0-10 knot range.

Any recommendations?
