When you're driving down the road, it's important to know how fast you're going. We all know how unreliable the speedometer is in most cars, so a speedometer app is a wonderful addition to any traveler's iPhone. Plus, you can easily place your speedometer where it's quickest to scan.
What is it about?
GPS Speedometer gives you the freedom of knowing exactly how fast you're going, even if your car's built-in speedometer is less than accurate. It displays your speed using the GPS in your iOS device. It has both car and bicycle modes, and shows you a lot more than just speed. You also get your direction of travel, altitude, top speed, average speed, and 16 different color themes. You get all of that without hitting your wallet, because GPS Speedometer is free on the App Store.
Why we love it
With GPS Speedometer, you have a high level of accuracy so you can always be sure how fast you're going. With both car and bicycle modes, you can use this app even when you're out two-wheeling to see how fast you're able to pedal. You can also set a speed warning to alert you with a visual notification and a sound, so you don't have to worry about accidentally speeding.
