Description

A high quality Speedometer app with the same sophisticated brain inside as our paid version. When you go over a preset speed limit, the large digits change colour from green to red and the device emits a loud sound to alert you! Great for avoiding speeding tickets!

‣ Easy to set and configurable speed limits
Set speed limits with 4 fast and configurable presets. Presets only need a single tap and are the safest way to set the limits!

‣ S.O.S. Flat tyre or worse?
Our speedometer shows your current location and you can share it easily (sms/text, email) with car assistance services, ambulance or friends.

‣ Know your car's limits !
Does your car become sluggish on those steep climbs? Is it possible you got too high in mountains ? Our built-in altimeter will provide you with accurate readings that indicate your height over sea-level.

‣ In a dispute for speeding?
GPS Black box gives you point by point time, speed, location and altitude data for the last 20 minutes of your travel. You can email its data as an excel or csv file. Or you can surely switch it off or reset at any moment.

‣ Need to know where you are?
Integrated map shows your location and a tracking "tail" behind you.

∙∙ UNIVERSAL APP. Speedometer for iPhone and 3G-iPads. Retina graphics included.

∙∙ 000-999 SPEED AND LIMIT RANGE. MPH, KMH AND KNOTS. Maximum, average speed, distance traveled.

! You can use this app on your iPhone 3GS, 4, or 4S as well as on any iPad with 3G. **App will not work properly on iPods and wifi only iPads as they don't have GPS chip (External GPS module is required).
! Please note that as with all GPS apps, continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Drive safely and avoid paying those speeding fines! Our speedometer is the ideal watchdog companion no matter what journey you are going on!

Full version of the speedometer gives you ability to work in background, GPS tracking, waypoints, trip cost computer, Siri shortcuts for applying speed limits and controlling track recording, 100+ customization options and more. Be sure to check it out in the AppStore!

* A bit of instructions: If speedometer doesn't show you the speed, just be sure to be under the open sky to have GPS signal. Under the open sky, within 5-10 seconds GPS indicator will become green and speedometer will start showing the speed.
** If you wonder why gps speedometer may show 3-5 mph (3-8 kmh) less than a car's speedometer, you can take a look here: http://goo.gl/wtLvT (tomtom's discussion thread).
*** And here is an amazing article http://goo.gl/p5zfMi explaining why GPS might show you 80ft (or -80!) altitude when you are laying on the beach. Don't throw the app or iPhone away just because of that! :) Let us use the article's last sentence here: "Those who use GPS altitude to aid in landing their small plane should have their insurance policies paid up at all times".

Dave hhhhh ,

This is truly a great app, and if I could charge mileage, I’d be using it every day.

OK, first of all this one star rating is only going to last a week. I just wanted to show my displeasure at removing the heads up display from the free version. It is truly a great app, and I will change the rating to reflect that next w. It is very useful, especially when your speedometer stops working !Things have been challenging and my truck’s speedo quitting was just latest small hurdle for me. I had the entire instrument cluster out, and was relying on your app as my only instrumentation a couple of months ago. I considered deleting it, but decided not to. The App is so well written, and works so seamlessly, it would be a shame. When things get better for me, I will pony up for the full version! The truck has been repaired, but I still miss the heads up display while driving at night. Congratulations on building such a fine App.

PS , heads up display is back, so I changed the rating to a five star ! I do hope to get the full version soon, thanks. I actually heard from the developer on this. He told me that the heads up display was there. Maybe it was a glitch or maybe it was my OGP (old guy problem) Such is life.

Developer Response ,

[New reply - 4-Dec-2021] Hi Dave, thank you for updating the review! You know you can charge for your miles in the full version: MENU > MODES > Taximeter mode. This allows you to setup fares and having trips that you'd charge somebody else for. BUT, please also see my other app (under my business account): "Taximeter 55" - this is a more specialised app for those who earn by driving, taxi drivers, towers, etc - it allows you to issue a receipt and have more daily/weekly/monthly stats on your earnings - also takes VAT into account when needed. If you write me to stan@blocoware.com, we can discuss more which app would be a better match for your needs. Yours, Stan, the app developer.
[Old reply] Hi Dave, there should be some mistake here. Heads-up screen is available in the free version, no changes here. When you open the app, please look for the reverse-arrow button in the top line of buttons, tap on it to get to the heads-up screen. Or, tap on a MENU > MODES > Heads up screen, this will get you to the heads-up screen as well. Write me to stan@blocoware.com, I'll be happy to help more.
P.S. If you open the heads-up from the main screen and it is not a reverted/mirrored screen - then it means that you used the full-screen mode before and the app remembers that as your preference, just tap twice on speed digits in that screen to get to the reverted/mirrored screen.

IOS 11 bug? (Edited..nope, it was the car’s computer)

I really like the app. Simple to use. Gives you a good check where to set cruise control when on the Interstate. Lot of easy to use features.

This is an edited review:

Originally rated a 3 star. Had an issue on a trip that the speed indication reads exactly 1/2 of the actual speed. ie going 70, it reads 35 MPH. Deleted App, reloaded to most current version. Tried several different settings on iPhone etc. still acted the same. Wrote a review and within 15 minutes received a reply from Stan and we began some troubleshooting procedures.

Short version is that the iPhone was connected to the Cadillac XTS USB port in the console compartment. When I disconnected the cable and ran the application it worked flawlessly. As soon as I plug the cable back in, the display showed 1/2 of actual speed.
iPhone 7 iOS version 11.3
Tried wife’s iPhone 5 with IOS 10.x
Same result.
Plug my phone into a cigarette to USB adapter in the application work fine. Bottom line is that the car’s computer system was giving erroneous input to the phone and application.

This App is awesome. Just beware of any time you are using a navigation app and you seem to be getting erroneous responses, be sure that you were not connected to the car’s computer system.

Two things:
This App is ***** (5 star)
And Stan ROCKS! !!

Developer Response ,

Dear Jim, thank you for contacting me via email and it was great experience to troubleshoot the issue with you. Let me recap the outcomes here. Turned out that the problem was in "DIRECT USB" port in Cadillac XTS. While connected to this port, location information was overridden by the car and was erratic. When connected to the simple charger USB port, everything was alright. Thank you again! This way we know that this is not an app or iOS 11 fault and have a hint to Cadillac users to avoid use of a "DIRECT USB" port if they want location to be provided by iPhone, but go a simple charger USB port. Yours, Stan.

Very accurate. Love it. Hate the cost.

First off...... Those of u say it’s inaccurate... get a real phone. I drove by one of those police radar signs today. And it said exactly what the police radar said. Well I like it. Just wish it cost less. In wouldnt use it a lot. I just put bigger tires on the back of my street truck. So therefore it acts like putting a different gear ratio in the rear. The speedometer in the truck reads lower now then your actual going. And thanks to this app. I know my speedometer is 3 to 6 mph off. If truck sais I’m doing 45 I’m really going 49 50. And I don’t need to get another ticket so this app helped me. I haven’t even looked at all the options it has. But it’s definitely a cool app. Ohh it has a heads up display so u can have it reflected of your windshield at night.
