I had to make a unscheduled trip to Florida and my speedometer had just stopped working in my car... I didn't have time to fix it, so I looked at my phone and said "I wonder if there is an app for that?" Well needless to say, there is... And I don't think I will ever worry about getting my car's speedometer fixed now!!!
This is not a full review of the Android-Speedometer App. It is simply a hands on review to give people an idea of just how powerful of an android application this really is.
So here is my two cents on this amazing little FREE app:
While driving down to Florida in the dark, I was messing with a Speedometer App on my iPhone. It was pretty basic. It just looked like my dashboard speedometer. It showed me my speed but that was about it... So I asked my brother use his HTC Droid Incredible and search the Android Market so see just what apps were available.
He found Android-Speedometer and that is where the fun began. It had a big, easy-to-read display that seemed to keep perfect speed readings with every push of the gas or brakes. He then found the HUD ( Heads Up Display ) button and pushed it. After that he placed the Incredible on the dash and we instantly fell in love with what we saw! A beautiful speedometer displayed right in the reflection of my car's windshield... We had never even thought of a speedometer application even existing just minutes before and now we felt like we just traded my cheap little Honda Civic for some sort of Cadillac or something. Its simply amazing!
It really saved the day by allowing my to still drive the speed limit (umm... ok, maybe a little faster then that ). No really it did exactly what we needed it to do since my real speedometer had stopped working, but it also made driving SO MUCH MORE RELAXING... No more looking up and down at the cars speedometer! You simply move the phone forward or backward on the car's dash until the phones display positions the reflection wherever you find it to be most convenient and to your personal liking. Its that simple!
What a difference it makes on long trips! It definitely takes some of the strain out of those late night road trips. Plus there are all types of settings you can adjust to you liking. Things like a clock, custom font colors, speed warnings (to keep you from going to fast), stop watch timer, compass, Google Maps integration, distances and times, records, statistics, satelitte views, power saving mode and much, much more.
There is also a pro version that removes the ads that are on the menus of the free version. The pro version is currently just over $2 so it won't break the bank!
I highly recommend downloading this free app if you like driving at night. I must warn you though that you may have to get used to cars slowing down next to you to see how you have your speed displayed on your windshield! It looks so cool that people can't help but to be nosey :)
