Settings overview:
* "Run in Background" mode allows iSpeed to run in the background.
* "Auto Stop In" setting will stop iSpeed from running in the background if it does not come to the foreground in the selected time.
* "Battery Saver" mode will automatically lower the GPS accuracy when running off the battery, helping to improve battery life.
* "Auto Pause" option will pause the trip timer when you are not moving, allowing you to measure travel time instead of total time.

- An iPod "Now Playing" view shows when a new song starts. Showing the song title, artist name, album name, and album artwork.

Works on the iPhone running iOS 8.1 or later.

The map view and weather requires a data connection to display information.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Have a safe trip!

Pros and cons of iSpeed Speedometer app for iPhone and iPad

iSpeed Speedometer app good for

Data agrees with car odometer much better than other navigation apps Ive used. Also the layout is well done. Recommended.
Nice app and the constant weather information is a nice touch especially since it changes to the current area you in. I really like this one out of all the different ones Ive tried. Good price. If your looking for a speed app then I recommend this one. Lots of features and options/settings. Doesnt kill your battery like some of the others. Hope this helps in your decision. Im on iPhone 4 iOS 4.1.
Having a car without a speedometer sucked until the iphone. But being a phone junky in the car I kept having to switch back an forth from speedometer apps and phone calls etc. This has definitely helped out big time havent found another app close and I have really tried out a lot. Wish they could include texting, phone calls and traffic to maps. Maybe in the update. Thanks.
This app is fantastic! I have been driving my Trail Blazer for 2 yrs. with no gauges at all. I have been super lucky to have made it without a ticket! I tried this out yesterday and it works great. I am thrilled to now have some help judging my speed!!! You guys rock!! Thanks for the peace of mind! Keep on inventing more apps, cause you know what we need!
