"Great My 79 Firebird speedo only goes to 140 kmh. ;). This worked perfectly."
"Within 1 mile per hour +/- Great Job!"
SpeedBox was one of the very early Speedometer Apps for the iPhone. Take advantage of my experience and the refined algorithms that can get a much greater accuracy from the iPhone then a lot of other apps. I regularly update my application to make it even more accurate and usable.
Users have already used our application to verify the accuracy of their car's speedometer or they tried measuring the speed they achieved while skiing. Can you come up with more ideas? How about measuring the speed of the airplane you travel with?
The "GPS strength" indicator in the top left corner should display a green dot. You can tap this indicator to display the current GPS accuracy.
Please allow the application up to a minute to find enough satellites to work correctly.
If you get a message to enable GSP, please go to ”Settings > General > Location Services“ on your iPhone and check if the little switch is set to "On" for Speed Box as well as for "Location Services" in general.
ATTENTION iPod touch users! Unfortunately this app doesn't work very well on the iPod touch and the iPad WiFI (without 3G) since these devices are missing a GPS!
If you've got any wishes or suggestions for new features, please let me know with the contact form on this application's website (see link below).
I am already working on the next update!
What's New in Version 7.0
* All new design
* Map view with current location
* Display average speed
* Higher accuracy
* More information on distance, max and average speed on settings page
I removed the annoying rating screen. If you like the app please give it a review on iTunes, I just LOVE to read what you have to say!
This is an awesome app for what I use it for ... Running, cycling, and driving a vehicle with oversized tires!
Running ... Gives me my distance, top speed, and average speed! An awesome thing to have on my phone when someone says they run faster than me, or they doubt what I can actually put out.
Same thing for running goes for biking too, except this time I use the altitude portion a lot more! I ride my bicycle in the mountains a lot.
I drive a truck, and recently I put oversized off-road tires onto it. My speedometer ended up more than 5 mph different at interstate highway speeds, which could have easily ended me up with some ticket problems. Also, my gas mileage seemed to decrease slightly, but when I tested the truck odometer against the distance on this GPS app, I discovered that instead of my gas mileage dropping a lot, I saw a very slight improvement! That was a big relief!
Thank you for the work you've put into this app.
- Would I change anything? -
The only thing I wish I could add to it is an option for users to enter and edit "speed limits" on the stretches of road they're traveling! That way, you could store the speed limits by location either on the app itself, or on a server that the app can connect to when the user is in those areas.
Kinda of useless
I got this and paid $3.99 for the promise that it could alert me when going over the speed limit, advertised as “warning signal when driving too fast.” I have plenty of other apps, like Waze or Google Maps, that can show me how fast I’m driving. But the feature I bought it for is essentially useless: you have to set a speed “limit” manually, and it will beep if you exceed that speed. But that doesn’t help at all when you’re traveling through towns where the speed limits change frequently. Based on the app description, I thought it would adjust the alert to the speed limit of my current location, but it does nothing of the sort. Bottom line, this is $4 for features I can get for free elsewhere. Buyer beware.
Exactly what I was looking for
This app is a great tool to have when your speedometer stops working especially when the speeds you must travel range from 25 to 70 and the trip takes over an hour - gave me REAL peace of mind and no concerns of getting s speeding ticket. I agree that "speeding" alert could be better and adapt to where you are but I set mine to 65 and it beeped and flashed and worked as expected and given speed traps in 25mph towns I try not to go much beyond the posted value - I was satisfied and felt 3.99 was well worth avoiding a ticket. Thanks!!!
