This speedometer uses the GPS from your Android device to measure your speed. You can adjust the maximum speed displayed according to your activity like driving a car or motorbike, cycling, running, walking, etc.
The indicator on the center bottom of the dial becomes green when your device receives GPS information. A red indicator is displayed when your current speed can not be measured.
On some devices the GPS reports the speed in regular intervals, the Nexus 4 and 5 seem to use 0.9km/h as minimum interval which result in rather "jumpy" movements of the needle when you display the speed in the interval 0-10km/h (Walking).
This app prevents your display from going into sleep mode.
The accuracy of the measured and displayed speed depends on a lot of factors like GPS (availability/quality of signal and accuracy) and the processing speed of your Android device. GPS data refreshes at a typical rate of once every second.
This app is by no means a replacement for calibrated speed measuring devices and should be used for recreational purposes only. The developer cannot be held responsible for the correctness of the information displayed.
