"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 5.2.4
* Finally squashed all bugs resetting the distance. I am so sorry for this, guys! :(
* Correctly convert km to miles when switching units
* Optimization for iOS7
Changes from earlier versions include:
* Added green accuracy indicator back. Grey means accduracy not high enough for good speed reading, Orange is kind of OK, but might be a bit off
* Tap and hold the odometer on the main screen for a second to reset
* Directly set threshold for speed warning by tapping the value on the settings page
Please rate or review my app in the AppStore if you like it. This helps me enormously and I just LOVE to hear from you guys!
All around useful.
I really enjoy using this app. It works all over the world for knowing how fast ones train is traveling to the ferry when out in the middle of nowhere between countries.
It is also very useful in being able to guess one's arrival time based on current and previous travel speed. This is especially true if your hydrofoil can maintain top speed due to rough seas. :)
I got this app when I first had access to gps in my iPhone and still use it with my iPhone 6.
I use this app on my Ski boat. My mechanical speedo broke 2 years ago and I was going to replace it. I never thought I could use GPS on the water. I tried other apps and they were not accurately and I was unable to see the app clearly in the sun. This app works perfect I can see it in the sun and it give a set top speed warning for getting the right speed for guys Wakeboarding and Skiing.
Would be nice to have a background refresh
Everything works great in this app while it's open, but would be awesome to have a version that could keep recording distance and speed history while in other apps or when locked.
