"The Clear of speedometer apps."

"Intuitive controls and… brilliant simplicity"

"...the safest speedometer app to date."
— Natacha Pavlov, SickOfTheRadio.com


The easiest possible way to set your speed limit alarm: just touch the screen anywhere and drag vertically.

Use HUD mode to reflect the speed on your windshield at night.

Avoid speeding tickets by knowing your actual speed. Did you know that most car speedometers are inaccurate? They can be up to 10% out due to varying tire sizes and lack of calibration. SpeedGlow gives a highly accurate speed reading with your iPhone's GPS chip and the help of over 30 global orbiting satellites.

Pinch to bring in more details, and expand to remove them.
Drag vertically to change the speed limit alarm.
Two finger tap to use HUD mode.
Swipe to change LCD color.

Choose from 6 glowing LCD colors to match your car's dash lights.

SpeedGlow cuts the usual distractions and gimmics of common speedometer apps, and shows just your speed with a beautiful glowing LCD font.

MPH or Km/h speed, 24hr or 12hr clock, portrait or landscape modes, with auto-interface rotation or locked.

SpeedGlow uses the GPS chip in your iPhone to determine your speed; mobile data is not needed.

What’s New

Version 2.0.1

Good App

I've been using SpeedGlow as my speedometer in my car for several months, so I felt it was time to write a review. It's a very simple, clean, & to the point app. It shows your current speed in either kph or mph, and it displays big numbers if you orient the phone, portrait-wise. It's very legible, which is good. When I'm driving, I don't have to squint to see how fast I'm going.

This app is good, but I feel like it could be better. I wish there was a way to choose what font & exactly what colors to be used. I like the LCD font used, but I wish I could use another font to match my car's speedometer more. However, that's just a minor thing.

The tutorial drives me nuts at times. If you accidentally touch the tutorial icon while you're driving, it'll sometimes force you to go through it. The other night, no matter how many times I pressed to skip help, it kept looping through all the steps, and I had no clue how fast I was driving. I'm not sure if it was a bug, or if my iPhone's touchscreen was acting up, but it was very extremely frustrating.

Sometimes, I also feel like the GPS isn't as accurate at times. Or perhaps, it is accurate, but just refreshes slower than I'm used to.

All in all, I still think it's a good app, better at displaying the information I need clearer than other speedo/HUD apps out there. Definitely worth checking out!

App is crap

Expensive for what it is. Cheap looking not to mention there is no app or way to see what top speed is. Literally just numbers.

Great App....

I love this App. I've paid for others and none have really hit it on the mark like SpeedGlow. That being said, there are two things I would really like to see. 1) The color options are good, but because I use this on a motorcycle, the black background tends to give me a lot of reflection. The addition of White backgrounds (or some other light colors) and contrasting font colors, would make it a better experience for me.
2) The brightness control that shows in the previous version's notes as a "coming soon" feature... again, night driving would be a bit better if I could dim the brightness.. while in cage or on motorcycle. It's been a year since the last update... how soon before this comes out?

Great work Chewy.... I beg for a few more updates =))
