Speed Alert lets you monitor your speed and sound an audible voice or sound alert when the desired speed is exceeded. Use to audibly alert yourself that you exceeded a speed limit by 5 mph/kph. Support mph (miles per hour) and kph (kilometers per hour).
Speed Limit and manual alerts are now supported. By default, Speed Limit is used and determines the speed limit automatically for the area you are driving in. If you use manual you can set the speed limit manually.
*** The app uses Open Street Map Nominatim to acquire location speed limits. The speed limits are informative only as some areas are very accurate as others are so-so. As OSM fills in more areas around the world accuracy will improve. ***
This designed for cars but can be used when running or walking also. Alarm speed minimum is 3 mph or 4.8 kph.

Ratings and Reviews
Very useful for monitoring speed while driving, running or walking
This app is extremely accurate and has two audible alerts for notifying you if your set speed limit has been exceeded. This of course if when you have the alert turned on which is a single click. I like the voice alert especially for areas where the speed limit is crazy around me such as 25 mph coming out of out commmunity. I trun alert on before leaving my community and one passt the area turn the alert off. This gives me a nice you have exceeded your speed limit at regular intervals until I slow down below the speed limit I set. This app is simple to use, accurate, and voice and sounds alerts are very good.
