GPS Speedometer is a simple GPS Android app, which will show you your current position, speed in both miles per hour (mph) or kilometers per hour (kph), your latitude, longitude, altitude (in meters or feet), your total distance traveled and map of your area. You can use the app in a car, boat, motorcycle, bus, train and bike.
The speedometer also features a very nice intro effect, as well as some options like screen size and toggle speed units (in miles per hour or kilometers). It is called "glowing", because it leaves the impression that the dial and pointer hand(needle) seem to emit light, like on some newer sports car's dashboards.
Velocity of consumer GPS receivers only report 2D (horizontal) speed on their readout. Depending on the different hardware on some Android devices and the outdoor conditions GPS measured speed may not always be accurate.
Some features of the speed app include:
-Shows you your current GPS position - Longitude, Latitude and Altitude, as well as your top speed.
-Your current speed and your maximum velocity, according to the satellites. GPS receivers display speed and calculate the speed using algorithms in the Kalman filter. Most receivers compute velocity by a combination of movement per unit time and computing the doppler shift in the pseudo range signals from the satellites. The velocity is smoothed and not instantaneous speed.
Google Maps for newer versions of Android (4.0.3 and above)
-Added Google Maps view. With a single click you can view your current position on the map, which may help you navigate to your current destination. Very nice looking!
-Both the analog and digital speedometer views can be either in miles or kilometers per hour.
-It shows the gps accuracy in meters and feet. The actual accuracy users attain depends on factors such as atmospheric effects, sky blockage, and receiver quality. The lower the value, the more accurate the readings are.
Units on dial
-Show both km/h and mph on the dial, or only the selected units. For example, if you live in the US you would like to show only mile per hour, if you live in Bulgaria you will want to set it to kilometers per hour. But if you travel regularly from England to France, for example, you might want to set it to show readings in both units.
*Permanently set to KM/H or MPH
*Move to SD card
*Set screen size
