Unsure how to assess its accuracy
I have a Prius. Checking it against those road-side police boxes, I figured it was reporting about 1 mph high. Speed Box also suggests that the Prius speedometer is reporting high. But the app isn't consistently different. With the Prius at 70, Speed Box varies between 66 and 69. As the car changes speed, so does the app but at a different rate. So I don't quite know how to assess what is going on. The precision is only to the nearest mph anyhow so if the car rounds up and the app rounds down, differences are to be expected. Plus who knows what the Prius technology is anyhow- calculated or measured - sometimes it feels like the car speed is fluctuating while the display remains constant. Some damping or hysteresis in either or both of these possibly?
It would definitely beat a broken speedometer but I would say don't depend on it for an exact instantaneous speed.
Has saved me money
When I was looking to purchase a fishing a boat, I had a lot of trouble finding out the speed of the boat from the sellers. Everyone gave estimates that didn't seem right to me. I found this little gem in the App Store and tested it out in my truck first and it was dead on. So I rode in a few boats that the sellers over estimated the speed. I was able to show them this app and actually got a boat for a little cheaper due to the speed being off.
I use this app any time I carry a certain amount of weight in my boat to see how much it slows me down. It helps estimate time when meeting people at a camp. You'll find a use for it down the road.
VERY helpful. Great app
This app is great! I bought a moped with a speedometer that didn't work and didn't want to spend the money on getting one put in. This app is very accurate and I tested it in a car to see if it was accurate or not an it was! I now use this app everytime I go somewhere on my moped and just bought a Nite Ize phone holder for my handle bars. Great app and saves me ALOT of money. I would recommend it to anyone!
