While running, cycling or driving, you can track your own speed. We don’t know exactly why you need it, but just in case, we have prepared a selection of cool applications!
So, that’s right, you just need to install special applications on your smartphone that use GPS. Speed is measured by correlating active location changes over time.
Prerequisites: turn on GPS and connect to the internet. Also, most of the applications support the HUD mode, which allows you to display a picture on the windshield of a car.
- Google maps.
Google maps occupy the first place in the rating due to their popularity (the system is used by over two billion users) and versatility. Without making loud announcements, in 2019 the company added a real-time speedometer function to the application, which perfectly complements the notification mode about current local speed limits. The speed display icon is activated in the settings.
- GPS Speedometer.
As if in denial of its narrowly focused name, the application contains many additional tools, for example, altitude meters (using GPS signals) and noise level (in decibels due to the smartphone’s microphone). The Speedometer Apps for iPhone also have analog and digital speedometers + a map, which displays the current location of the car while driving. The indicator of the maximum available speed for fixing allows you to track even the train!
- Smart GPS Speedometer.
One of the more feature-rich apps on our list. He has two modes: driving a car or a bicycle. Pleased with additional functions that make life easier for the driver! For example, you can check gas prices at local gas stations, find taxi ranks, service stations, car washes, etc. – only most of the chips are not available in the free version. This is a significant disadvantage.
Waze is another Google app that is also a popular navigation assistant. There is also a speedometer option here: the speed is automatically displayed immediately after opening the tab in the lower left corner of the screen. Something went wrong? You can activate the function manually via: “Search”, “Settings”, “Driving settings”, “Speedometer”, “Show on map”.
A simple application, only slightly inferior to the first in the collection. Here you can set a speed limit and every time you exceed it, the application will notify you about it – a useful thing for dealing with traffic cops and their fines! The rest is to adjust the brightness and color of the icons themselves in the application, which is not very important.
- Speedometer PRO.
This thing has been downloaded by over five million users on Google Play, which says a lot! Shows your current, average and maximum speed, as well as the distance traveled. Information about each trip is saved in the “History” tab and can be viewed at any time.
If all the previous applications have one main common function + additional ones and differ little from each other, then Zpeed is a website in any browser for those who do not want to fill up the smartphone’s memory. The user interface is simple, there is not a lot of functionality, so it will be extremely simple to figure it out. The speed is displayed in numbers, there is no analog speedometer (Bike Speedometer App iPhone). Just don’t forget to set your location permission!
