By Stanislav Dvoychenko
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
A high quality Speedometer app with the same sophisticated brain inside as our paid version. When you go over a preset speed limit, the large digits change colour from green to red and the device emits a loud sound to alert you! Great for avoiding speeding tickets!
‣ Easy to set and configurable speed limits
Set speed limits with 4 fast and configurable presets. Presets only need a single tap and are the safest way to set the limits!
‣ S.O.S. Flat tyre or worse?
Our speedometer shows your current location and you can share it easily (sms/text, email) with car assistance services, ambulance or friends.
‣ Know your car's limits !
Does your car become sluggish on those steep climbs? Is it possible you got too high in mountains ? Our built-in altimeter will provide you with accurate readings that indicate your height over sea-level.
‣ In a dispute for speeding?
GPS Black box gives you point by point time, speed, location and altitude data for the last 20 minutes of your travel. You can email its data as an excel or csv file. Or you can surely switch it off or reset at any moment.
‣ Need to know where you are?
Integrated map shows your location and a tracking "tail" behind you.
∙∙ UNIVERSAL APP. Speedometer for iPhone and 3G-iPads. Retina graphics included.
∙∙ 000-999 SPEED AND LIMIT RANGE. MPH, KMH AND KNOTS. Maximum, average speed, distance traveled.
! You can use this app on your iPhone 3GS, 4, or 4S as well as on any iPad with 3G. **App will not work properly on iPods and wifi only iPads as they don't have GPS chip (External GPS module is required).
! Please note that as with all GPS apps, continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Drive safely and avoid paying those speeding fines! Our speedometer is the ideal watchdog companion no matter what journey you are going on!
Full version of the speedometer gives you ability to work in background, GPS tracking, waypoints, trip cost computer, professional taximeter, 30+ customization options and more. Be sure to check it out in the AppStore!
* A bit of instructions: If speedometer doesn't show you the speed, just be sure to be under the open sky to have GPS signal. Under the open sky, within 5-10 seconds GPS indicator will become green and speedometer will start showing the speed.
** If you wonder why gps speedometer may show 3-5 mph (3-8 kmh) less than a car's speedometer, you can take a look here: http://goo.gl/wtLvT (tomtom's discussion thread).
*** And here is an amazing article http://goo.gl/p5zfMi explaining why GPS might show you 80ft (or -80!) altitude when you are laying on the beach. Don't throw the app or iPhone away just because of that! :) Let us use the article's last sentence here: "Those who use GPS altitude to aid in landing their small plane should have their insurance policies paid up at all times".
What's New in Version 1.6.1
iOS 9 ready (also means iPad screen multitasking). iPod player for iPhone 4S & iPads. Native support for iPhone 6/6+ screens. Map scale ruler and 2 positions for a full screen map. Updated Google map. And more!
‣‣ iOS 9.
Not only we updated the app to play nice with the new and gorgeous Apple system font, but we also made sure speedo works with the iPad MULTITASKING (screen split) feature.
‣‣ iPod player for iPhone 4S & iPads.
We were not greedy when disabling that for iPads and 3.5" iPhones, it was a question of managing the screen space and we nailed it for this release!
Map now supports two full screen modes.
New one will keep iPod player on a screen, so you can have a big map and still control the music. Google map has been updated to the newest version so you can use all of the memory and performance benefits coming from the Google’s continuous work.
‣‣ Native support for iPhone 6/6+ screens.
What to say here? We are sorry for delaying that for so long! Now delivered!
If you have a moment to pat us on a shoulder with your review, we'll really, really appreciate that! We will be so happy to know how do you use the app and if there is anything we should change. Like would you prefer a different alert sound? Would you mind if we change the map from Google's to Apple's one? We are missing a feedback from you on the free app and it makes its evolution really harder.
And don't forget that full version of the app moves forward quite fast! Here are some highlights for what's new there:
‣ Speed limits MEMORY and 8 speed limit presets.
‣ Speed cameras IMPORT & ALERT (and not only speedcams, guys on a "Chicago -> La Plata" historical train use that to automatically announce stops :)!)
‣ New alert sounds.
‣ Separate sound volumes for alert and voice notifications.
‣ Offline and custom maps.
And many, many more!
This is a fabulous app. No problems, works as advertised. Without question, is the best speed app out there, and highly recommended.
I got several speeding tickets recently, and needed to find a speed limit app that would sound an alarm if I went over the speed limit. This app is fabulous for doing that!
- First, you can create 8 different speed limit alarms, and...
- Second, you can actually create speed limit points on a map to automatically adjust your speed alarms!
- Third, you can share your speed limit map database with other users, or use other's speed limit maps, but I haven't had a need to do that.
This app is well thought out, with many functions integrated into it. I use it every day for my commute, and after using it for several months now would be lost without it. I really find it to be one of the greatest apps (and one of the greatest values) in the entire Apple app store.
Great app, and very highly recommended!!!
What I've been looking for...
Exactly what I have been looking for and I'm still on the free version. Speed/GPS/music controls - all on one screen. Plus if a dodgy cop says you were going faster than you know you were - this app keeps a record of how fast you were going with time, date, and location. The only thing it doesn't do that my "real" GPS would do that came in handy is display what the speed limit is. But everything else more than makes up for that...plus there are other bells and whistles to get into. Claps all around for this one.
The speedometer in the company owned Freightliner that I was using malfunctioned and this app saved my bacon. As I've checked it against other speedometers I've noticed that the tire tread effects the accuracy. I now use this in every vehicle I drive (and when my wife is driving, lol).
My only minor complaint is that more than once I have accidentally touched the speed format without realizing it and looked down to realize it was registering knots or km.
After using the free app for several months, I am buying the full version. 🙂
