Speed - The GPS Speedometer

Speed - The GPS Speedometer


Speed is a drop-dead simple speedometer for Android that uses the location data from the GPS to provide a near-accurate representation of how fast you're actually traveling.

Featuring lush graphics and a clear, legible display, Speed is the perfect bicycle, boat or train speedometer. Both kilometers and miles per hour are supported, and a landscape mode for widescreen operation. Simply tap the dial to switch between miles, kilometers and knots.

If you're on Android 3.x or above, double-tap the dial to flip it upside down so you can reflect it off a surface (like a windshield) as a heads-up-display.

NOTE:
As this works using the GPS, you will have to be moving at a certain minimum speed for it to register, and from testing it seems to be 5km/h. Ergo walking won't normally make the dial update unless you have super-accurate GPS coverage.

Some phones have better GPS than others; if you're having problems using Speed feel free to send us an email with your make of device and what ROM you're using and we'll see if we can help!

Recent changes:
• Entirely new UI
• Heads Up Display mode on double-tap
• Supports 720p devices (like the Galaxy Nexus) and tablets

Poor functionality for the money There are plenty of other speedometer apps that do a LOT more for free, and a couple of them are ad-free too.
