Monitor your speed and sound an audible sound or voice alert.
Alerts can be by actual road Speed Limit (Open Street Map) or done manually.
Supports mph and kph.
Speed Alert lets you monitor your speed and sound an audible voice or sound alert when the desired speed is exceeded. Use to audibly alert yourself that you exceeded a speed limit by 5 mph/kph. Support mph (miles per hour) and kph (kilometers per hour).
Speed Limit and manual alerts are now supported. By default, Speed Limit is used and determines the speed limit automatically for the area you are driving in. If you use manual you can set the speed limit manually.
*** The app uses Open Street Map Nominatim to acquire location speed limits. The speed limits are informative only as some areas are very accurate as others are so-so. As OSM fills in more areas around the world accuracy will improve. ***
This designed for cars but can be used when running or walking also. Alarm speed minimum is 3 mph or 4.8 kph.
To measure distance covered try our iMeasurer app.
On an iPhone, if the app is switched to landscape mode, the map is hidden. Turn back to portrait to show the map again.
When the Alert is on, the speedometer will have a red border.
By default, the speed units are mph (miles per hour). Mph and Kph are available in the settings. Alert voice and sound are available in the settings. Mph is the default speed units and voice is the default alert sound.
The default Alert Speed is set to 55 mph with a speed range of 0 to 120 mph. When the speed units are set to Kph, according to the speed limit and speed range are set to reflect kph. The Alert Speed is marked on the speedometer by a red dot and the current speed and speed units are shown in the middle of the speedometer. The current speed is always shown and monitored.
To turn a speed alert on, use the slider to select the desired alert speed then click Turn Alert On.

Use Speed Limit/Manual to toggle between actual road speed limits and manually settings speed limit.
Use Day/Night to toggle between colors that work well in day or night.
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Ratings and Reviews
Absolutely Useless 😖
This app will only set an alert for a specific speed limit and not a plus or minus over or under the current posted speed limit. Therefore if you are driving downtown and the speed limit is 35 mph and you want to be alerted at exceeding 5 mph over then you set the alarm for 40 mph; not 5 mph. Since you must reset this on every new road or turn or speed trap it is completely useless since you will be spending more time messing around with your phone rather than driving. What a disappointment. This is a lame version of what could’ve been a good and useful idea. Thank you for wasting my time and please do not write any more programs.
