‣‣ What's the cost of my driving?
Cost monitor will tell you! Based on gas price for a gallon or litre, MPG or litres per 100 km it will tell you what the cost is as you drive. You can add an extra cost per kilometre or mile and this will also be included! Useful for all cost aware drivers and for sharing the cost with your passengers.Both UK and U.S. MPG are supported.
‣‣ Where I've been? How long did it take to get from A to B?
Speedometer records your trip statistics even when GPS tracker is switched off. When you need point by point data to see on the map later or export to Google Earth, speedometer gives you the first class GPS tracker, a robust and swift one.

What's New in Version 1.5.2
! As always, new features should not get into your way unless you need them!
** Waypoints **
Now You can create waypoints as you drive. Waypoints are not mute, you can attach an audio note to them and photo. Creation of a waypoint may be as easy as double tap on speed digits. Hold the speed digits until menu comes up asking for what to do on a double tap.
** New menu **
Now you can see and control all of the app main functions in one place and with button sizes that you can't miss. We hope you'll find this new menu a great addition especially for landscape mode on iPhone and of course, iPad. A handy option to open this menu is to double tap on speed digits.
** Rally computer **
This is not a 100% substitute for a $200 rally computer, but may serve you well in many occasions. The idea is, that instead of a map, you can get some selected counters to be shown in quite bigger fonts. To switch rally mode on, hold the "MAP" arrow and release. You'll see options to switch to rally computer or back to a map. Double tap on a big counter will switch to the next available value. Hold and release on an upper distance counter will open more options for distance correction.
** Live map. Lock up north, remember the scale and viewing angle **
Showing the map with area ahead of you on top is still our preferred way. Though having map top always pointing to north is quite convenient to many map experts. There is an option added in "Advanced Settings" > "Map Settings" to lock the map on north. In addition to that option, the map zoom level and viewing angle are now remembered.
** Even more options for the live map **
Just hold your finger on a live map until menu with options appears. You can choose if waypoints should be shown on the map, if map should track your location or not and open map settings.
** Vibrate instead of or in addition to the sound alert **
Option is located in "Advanced Settings" > "Alert sounds" at the bottom of sounds list. Useful for scenarios when you keep iPhone in your pocket and still want to be alerted.
** Designed for iOS7, still supporting iOS5.1 and iOS6 **
We applied iOS7 specifics where required. As iOS 7 gives you an extra control in system settings to decide if app can access location services in background, we now give you a warning that some of the functions might be unavailable when you disable background location access for speedometer.
** GPS black box control **
It is possible to switch the black box off or clear its data. As black box function is connected to GPS tracking function, you will not be able to switch black box off or clear it when GPS tracking is in progress. End your current track first to be able to fully control the black box.
** Single GPS track sharing and export **
You can share a single track via email, facebook or twitter and export it to Google Earth (kmz format). An option is also added to see the track and its statistics on a single screen. That's probably the best option to share from.
** Option to disable GPS error popups **
Every GPS error message now has an extra "Ignore" button that lets you disable those popups.
** Miscellany **
All export formats are now pure comma delimited so you can open it in Excel with no extra effort.
Built-in iPod player now handles headphone disconnection in a better way.
Maximum length of detailed GPS track is now 16 hours instead of 8 when built in GPS is used.
We are eternally grateful for your support and kind reviews! Your reviews are the driving force for bringing you new features and improvements!
Great for auto restoration
I restore vintage cars and almost always change the gear ratio or transmission for modern driving conditions at the owners request. This app lets me quickly determine the correct speeds when it is not possible to get a speedo adaptor or correct speedometer gear for the car I am working on. So far it has been spot on for all the parameters.
Excellent app, highly recommend
My earlier lukewarm review was about a different app and way off the mark. This one has outstanding features and customization choices. Lost the tach and speed readings on my '98 Tacoma, hard to get repaired. There's a slot just behind the steering wheel where you can rest an iPhone and lean it back right over the regular gauge and turn on this Speedometer App. Absolutely perfect replacement!
If only it could detect the posted speed limit
I just started using this app two days ago. Yesterday, I went on the interstate with the preset limit set to 55 and the app was “honking” at me constantly. It was very annoying and bothered me so much that I ended up deleting the app while driving (not the safest thing to do). I drive in many different speed zones daily…I can’t be changing the presets constantly.
Otherwise the app is very good, so I give it 3 stars.
