SpeedMinder exists to warn you when you are exceeding your speed limits.
It can also alert you when approaching regular Police Speed Trap locations.
It can tell you what speed to drive when you pass one of your speed limit signs.
It can also alert you at TurnMinder signs which you have placed near turns that you may forget or that are hard to see in the dark.
If you are like a lot of people, you receive most of your speeding tickets in areas where you regularly drive. So most of your risk of getting a ticket may be alleviated by manually storing, one time only, a few speed limit changes/speed trap locations in a database. This allows you to be alerted whenever you drive past them and warned when you exceed your limit for these signs.
SpeedMinder alerts you if you are speeding, based on you driving past the signs that you enter in the database. It can alert you by playing a police siren sound (or a custom sound of your own) while displaying a flashing onscreen alert banner. The sound will get louder the more you are above your personal 'OK Over' speed which you have chosen for that specific speed limit. Additionally you can add a vibration alert, with or without the audio alert.
When you approach a SpeedMinder sign that changes your speed limit, you can optionally hear a friendly voice tell you what speed to accelerate or decelerate to and see the speed change instruction that appears on the screen. The new speed that you hear or see is based on the ‘OK Over’ setting you have chosen for the new speed limit.
You can adjust the volume of the audible alerts. We find it best to have the 1 mph over siren volume such that you can notice the sound but it is not intrusive. You can also adjust the SpeedMinder Master volume and the volume for speed sensitive alerts. There are many settings that allow you to hear only desired SpeedMinder alerts. SpeedMinder plays all these audible alerts even while listening to iPhone music or using another app, however while you are talking on the phone, SpeedMinder only plays a fixed siren sound when you are above your limit.
SpeedMinder handles special speed limit signs too, not only Time of Day limits but night limits, truck limits, weekday, Time of Year and more.
To create your database, when you come across a speed limit change that is not on your SpeedMinder Map, simply SWIPE sideways anywhere on the map, at which point a speed limit table appears. When you are safely able to do so, TOUCH and hold the NEW SPEED limit value. At this point you will hear the value of the speed limit you are touching, if it is correct, SLIDE UP into the green banner to save it. The sign will be located on the map, where your vehicle was when you did the initiating swipe sideways. This method of adding signs works well in a dynamic situation with minimum diversion of your attention and is not prone to entering the incorrect value for the new limit.
SpeedMinder uses many features to preserve battery yet can still provide audible speeding alerts whether the App is on the screen or not. However, continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life so you should put your phone on charge while driving. Use either a USB cigarette plug with a normal charge cord or an in-car charging cradle for your phone. Good ones can be purchased for $15-$30.
The most effective way to increase battery life is to disable SpeedMinder while you are not driving. Do this by touching the DISABLE X icon.
By using SpeedMinder you are agreeing to allow our free use of and the automatic transmission to us of, your SpeedMinder signs and settings files. No personal information is gathered.
We are confident that SpeedMinder will end up as one of your bottom 4, always there, icons!
Happy ticket free driving!
Ftp problems fixed.
GPS location manager more robust.

Ratings and Reviews
Best app ever?
Wow! This app works great - exactly as described! It was worth every penny I paid for it and more.
My commute every day has many different speed limit zones. Keeping up with them is a distraction away from driving safely. After I entered the speed limits (which was easy and quick) the app keeps up with them for me and allows me to concentrate on driving safely.
Many thanks to the team who put this together.
Don't buy ths app
I thought this app already recognized speed limits of most streets and freeways, but it does NOT. You first have to imput speed limits all the streets and freeways you drive. Then, this app works as a speed limit warning system. Ovbiously, this app is totally useless when you drive the area you have not driven. $3.99 for this?? No way.
