"Within 1 mile per hour +/- Great Job!"

SpeedBox was one of the very early Speedometer Apps for the iPhone. Take advantage of my experience and the refined algorithms that can get a much greater accuracy from the iPhone then a lot of other apps. I regularly update my application to make it even more accurate and usable.

Users have already used our application to verify the accuracy of their car's speedometer or they tried measuring the speed they achieved while skiing. Can you come up with more ideas? How about measuring the speed of the airplane you travel with?

The "GPS strength" indicator in the top left corner should display a green dot. You can tap this indicator to display the current GPS accuracy.

Please allow the application up to a minute to find enough satellites to work correctly.

If you get a message to enable GSP, please go to ”Settings > General > Location Services“ on your iPhone and check if the little switch is set to "On" for Speed Box as well as for "Location Services" in general.

ATTENTION iPod touch users! Unfortunately this app doesn't work very well on the iPod touch and the iPad WiFI (without 3G) since these devices are missing a GPS!

If you've got any wishes or suggestions for new features, please let me know with the contact form on this application's website (see link below).

I am already working on the next update!

I downloaded this app for fun

I cannot review this more than just fun. When I first downloaded it I did it because I was told how Greyhound drivers always speed. I was taking the bus to visit family and wanted to know how true this fact was. Turns out the two drivers I had did not speed maybe with gps tracking companies can see your speed, or maybe it was just fear of speeding tickets.

The other thing I used the app for was when riding home one night a friends dashboard’s light burned out, so my friend being in his 80’s did not have a smartphone. I pulled up the app and it worked great for getting us home.

Would I recommend this app. Depends on what you need it for. It does track miles about as well as any other gps app would. It also does speed pretty close, so it is not a fantastic replacement for a dashboard it can be used as a short term fix. The best thing I can say about the app is the max speed warning. If you have a speeding problem and go with the flow of traffic you can set the max speed you want to go and it will yell if you go over. Only problem is the setting does not change if you go from American miles to metric so it yells at you.

This is an awesome app for what I use it for ... Running, cycling, and driving a vehicle with oversized tires!

Running ... Gives me my distance, top speed, and average speed! An awesome thing to have on my phone when someone says they run faster than me, or they doubt what I can actually put out.

Same thing for running goes for biking too, except this time I use the altitude portion a lot more! I ride my bicycle in the mountains a lot.

I drive a truck, and recently I put oversized off-road tires onto it. My speedometer ended up more than 5 mph different at interstate highway speeds, which could have easily ended me up with some ticket problems. Also, my gas mileage seemed to decrease slightly, but when I tested the truck odometer against the distance on this GPS app, I discovered that instead of my gas mileage dropping a lot, I saw a very slight improvement! That was a big relief!

Thank you for the work you've put into this app.

- Would I change anything? -

The only thing I wish I could add to it is an option for users to enter and edit "speed limits" on the stretches of road they're traveling! That way, you could store the speed limits by location either on the app itself, or on a server that the app can connect to when the user is in those areas.

Best app I've had to use on a daily basis that truly helps me out

I had just bout this old car that had been sitting in one place for more then enough days then should be and had quite some time getting it up to drivable order and the only 1 of few minor problems ended up being my speedometer was 15 mph over and also will bounce back and fourth 5 mph bouts was. So what I'm getting at is knowing I had access to this ability on my iou device I was left having to use it in order to travel. This ended up leading to the realization that this up was definitely 100 percent worth paying the pocket Chang to be able to have the ability to use my phone as a tool in witch helps me have a better look and more information then the old basic speedometers wile I drive.
