About this app

Maps Speedometer (formerly known as Navigation Speedometer) shows your current speed in Google Maps/Navigation or any other app, like Navigon, TomTom, Sygic, CoPilot, Skobbler, WhatsApp, Chrome. It automatically detects when Google Maps/Navigation or any other app of your choice is active and shows an elegant overlay with a speedometer. It is also possible to show the speedometer when you connect to an other Bluetooth device.

- No advertisements!

- It automatically shows and hides, depending whether a Bluetooth connection is active;
- There is also a manual mode, to control it via the notification bar manually;
- Choose between miles, kilometers per hour or knots (mph, km/h or kn);
- Hide it for 10 seconds by touching the overlay;
- Adjustable transparency;
- Adjustable size;
- Adjustable position, just drag it anywhere you like;
- Adjustable colors and styles;
- Can be used with any app installed on your device

Maps Speedometer can only show on your phone screen while connected to Android Auto. There is a special activation mode to do so. At the moment it is not possible to show an overlay over the Maps app in Android Auto. Android Auto currently only supports audio or messaging apps (within some strictly defined boundaries).
We hope that Android Auto will become more open to allow apps like Maps Speedometer and Maps Speed Limits to show an overlay on Android Auto, but at this moment there doesn't seem to be any incentive at Google to do so.

Please contact us if this application does not work properly on your device.
We will try to fix the problem for the next release.

This app uses Accessibility services. This app will only use Accessibility services to detect the current active app, so it can show the overlay with the apps chosen by you in the configuration.

Display system-level alerts
This app will remain active in the background (no battery drainage) and shows an overlay on top of Google Maps/Navigation while active.
Draw over other apps
With this permission the app is able to detect if Google Maps/Navigation is active.
Precise location (GPS and network-based)
Necessary to read the speed from the GPS chip in your device.

Navigation Music Controller, an app to display music controls.

Installed this on my Honor 9 and followed all instructions to the letter but the speedometer will not show up on anything, not even its own app let alone Google maps or Google maps go. Update: after a lot more searching and head scratching I discovered drop zone permissions in the phone manager app. in there is the speedometer button to switch on drop zone. Now it works, at last.

Works great on my Android tablet with Google Maps, including "Start Driving" (no navigation) mode (where Google Maps speedometer option doesn't work). I like that I can make speed display much larger and easier to read than Google Maps speedometer.

5 months on Pixel 3: Superb app. With Android 10 running flawlessly in Google Maps + Waze + MapFactor — all of which, indeed, have their own integrated Speedometers. Fact is the degree of customization / control of display in this app remains outstanding, seriously augments the navigators, and justifies its modest cost. Bravo Dev — and here's hoping you continue to develop it!
