Speedometer by HUDWAY offers a brand new way to control speed when driving. A remedy against the speeding tickets, the app keeps you aware on what speed limitation is set for the current road section and alerts when you're exceeding it.
The app is straight and handy, with no tricky settings. Launch the app and place the phone onto the dashboard close to the windshield (if you want to use it in Head-Up Display or HUD mode and see the reflection on the windshield), or into the mount (for standard use). It's specifically designed to offer you a safe and non-distracting visual assistance.
Perfectly works in the background — tracks your speed and gives sound alerts when you're exceeding, even when you're using some other app (for example, some navigation one).
HUDWAY Speedometer is a good company in any journey as it:
Knows current speed limitation (both within cities and on highways);
Works in both standard and HUD mode. HUD mode allows using your smartphone or tablet as a projector. Just place your device close to the windshield, and the screen image will get reflected and displayed on the windshield. Keep your eyes on the road — everything you need is displayed right in front of you!
Doesn't require much attention. The app is designed to be comfortably used without direct focus on it. Your peripheral sight will be enough to keep you aware.
Alerts on sped limits, as well as on speed cameras and radars.
Doesn't need Internet connection to work. Needs Internet only at first launch.
It simply works. And does it very neatly!
1. On a clear day, the device screen brightness is typically insufficient to give a decent reflection for HUD mode. In that situation, you can use the app in standard mode with the phone fixed with some mount, OR stay HUD using our HUDWAY Glass accessory (learn more about it at hudwayglass.com). At night, in dusk, or in dull weather the reflection is normally well-discernible.
2. When driving, make sure that your smartphone or tablet is well fixed in some mount or on some sticky pad, and doesn't prevent you from clearly seeing the road.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Ratings and Reviews
A lot of good and some not
This app is the best of ours kind, perhaps seconds to none, but, yes! A big but, the app speed warning is very annoying only because it more often than not does not know the true speed limit even though I updated the database consistently forcing me to set the vision speed for 10 miles over which then fails you advise me when I'm just 5 over which is a unique feature to this app. The only other thing is it will suddenly say I'm going much slower than I actually am including going 0. It worked better as a free app but will be the best app anywhere if they fix things up.
Only works on highways
Found that it does not work on side streets or city streets. If the app does not know the speed, just show - - instead of showing 55 or 60 on a residential road where it is really 25. If other apps can tell me what the side streets are,why can’t this app. This one does a much better job of alerting when it knows the right speed.
Developer Response ,
Hi! Sorry for this trouble you faced! We'd be grateful if you could contact us at email@example.com and share the locations you input. Thank you in advance. Have a nice day!
Good but useless
It is a good app but it doesn't run in background. So if the app is running and the you hit the home button and locked the iphone, it won't alter you when exceed the speed.
