Review from Gary Coupe
I wanted a simple GPS app to show speed & distance info, using minimal space & resources. This app is the best I've found in over three years of trying several GPS Speedometer apps across four Android handsets. After using the free version for a short period, I was more than happy to pay £0.99 for this Pro version, simply to support the developer. Getting extra features is a bonus! Quick to launch / establish GPS lock, responsive & stable whilst using minimal storage space. Also easy to use. Quite simply does what it claims to do - no more, no less - just what I was looking for, and still my preferred app for this purpose over 2 years since first installing the free version.
January 20, 2015Pleased to hear that it gives you what you need Gary, and thanks for your support!
An awesome app that does everything it promises! Absolutely worthwhile to spend the ridiculously low fee for the Pro version, as all the little extras you get with it are useful AND cool. Especially useful is the Speedlight feature that changes the current speed reading to a color of your choice when you reach a speed of your choosing - very helpful to let you concentrate on your driving. Been trying to get help - cannot get GPS screen on half the screen off! NO answer on FB!! Help!!
A great app with lots of useful information on the screen and the miniature overlay allows you to use Google maps at the same time. Speed barrier sound is a handy extra. Although an option to not use Bluetooth would be a great option as my phone's connects to my car stereo for calls and bit but I listen to the radio and therefore can't hear the audible warnings. If Google navigation can achieve this you could to ;-) I didn't need to but I bought the pro version to support development of the app.
Just one thing I'd like, gets it a fifth star. An average speed mode to help with driving between average speed cameras. It would display average speed and current speed at same size, maybe different colours, average would have one decimal place, there'd be a start button which would restart average when you go past the first camera. You can reset the average already, I know, but it resets other things and is too many button presses and is too small for this purpose.
I do love this app. There is one update I would really like to see. My old phone does not have an ambient temperature sensor. So instead, it shows my phone's battery temperature. I would really love it, if it would use information from my weather application. It freaks me out, every time I see it. Other than that, it is the best speedometer application that I have found yet! Please make it get outside temperature from weather app!
Hats off to James! It's been sadly rare, in my experience, to come across an app that obviously has had quality time & energy go into it. I can't wait for my "Huddy" to arrive. $1.63?!..I'd have paid 20x more for this, happily. THANK YOU!!!!
A nicely designed application with everything more or less where you'd want it. It is largely intuitive to use and the display features are very good. The speed displayed does not quite tally with other GPS devices I have access to and I have chosen to use a measure of speed offset, to bring it into "true". I would have given this application 5 stars except I have found the support to be non-existent. I emailed the creators a month ago with some issues & questions and have heard nothing from them since. That is disappointing.
