Great utility! Great utility, very simple to use (no menu selection required to change speed warning - IMHO a basic safety requirement, but only one I've found!). Two requests - Option to turn off the warning noise, and a digital display alternative with speed + average speed shown.
Great idea, annoying nag This is the only app I've found that makes it easy to adjust speed limits on the fly. That alone makes it the best. However, the nag screen for the paid version pops up every 30 to 60 seconds. Worse, the app doesn't function while the nag screen is up. Still worse, the app loses GPS lock while the nag screen is up. These combined faults make it difficult to evaluate the app to determine whether I want to buy it.
ACCURATE SPEED CHECKER I went in search of a speedo app after having problems with speedometer on my motorcycle, tried a few and either did not work or had a messy confusing user interface. This is a great example that apps should stick to a specific purpose and be as simple and clear as possible. When you launch the app you get to set your speed limit or if you so choose you can select no limit. The speed was very accurate and confirmed my suspicion that my speedometer was out by about 10mph.
Lrd.Forster GPS speed accuracy is always going to be a fundamental flaw when actually travelling at 70mph the the gps app would report anything from 65 to 70 mph I initially put this down to varying accuracy depending actual satellites above, but later thought gps maps on a horizontal plane as you never travel on that plane but either up or down hill the speed will usually report underspeed. It may even be a combination of both. This flaw could be reduced by using accelerometers and maybe then an accurate speed measurement could be made. The oedometer is obviously calculated from the speed, but after a single 352.1 mile journey according to my car's milometer the app odometer read 328.7 which is nearly 10% error proving my point of accuracy in general this app will not stop you getting a speeding ticket. I would have rated this app 5 stars if it had been accurate at speed measurement.
Doesn't work in background I love the bigger settable buttons for changing the speed limit. I would buy this if I could set it and go back the navigator. It would also be helpful to have a speed icon on navigator to show the speed and clicks to get back to set a new speed limit. Very good start to a great app. Setting the speed and having it remember for the next trip is a great enhancement too. That is a good enticement to buy it which I will because these little towns with very slow speed limits are out to make money.
Simple and smooth. I love how easy it is to change the alarm speed on the fly with just a simple touch. And while it does not integrate with google maps the alarm makes it still useful when not visible. Also like it does not record speed average and max. It can be incriminating in the wrong hands.
Addded option to display status bar, added cosmetic tweak to dials.
