As long as there are speed cops around there will be people trying to beat them one way or another. Some have radar or laser detectors and police scanners fitted to detect upcoming radar traps. This enables the driver to drive as fast as they like and only adjust when a speed cop is detected coming up. Not very safe! Before that there were the old CB radios announcing 'rubber duckies' and 'snakes in the grass' to warn of upcoming police action. In truth, the only safe way is to drive the correct speed limit. Speedometer s54 is a free twofold motoring app for your iDevices that not only warns you to regulate your speed to the correct limit but also connects you to GPS technology. Now you can know exactly where you are going as well as avoiding expensive speeding fines legally.
Don't worry about exceeding the speed anymore! With Speedometer s54 you can set the speed limit and drive calmly as this motoring app will warn you when you go beyond it. Moreover, the application will tap into and track your GPS coordinates and draw movement trajectory, pointing your current location on standard, satelite or hybrid maps to gauge your speed. It monitors your speed in either MPH or kPH and you can tell the app to alert you if you exceed a pre-set speed up to speeds of 120 MPH making the app great for longer trips where the speed limit is constant, rather than, say, trips on a back road where the limit changes every few miles. Once you set the alert it will send off a shrill beeping noise when you exceed the limit as well as providing a red, graphic alert on the device’s screen.
With speeding fines going up and up as well as driving bans affecting your ability to work and travel it makes more sense to drive within the speed limits rather than taking your chances with illegal and dangerous scanners and detectors. Speedometer s54 takes the worry out of being caught violating the speed limit. And as an added bonus, this new version shows device's real-time orientation to magnetic fields allowing even more accurate readings. The US$1.99 add-on to the free app will provide integration with Google maps so you can track your whereabouts at any time. What's more, there'll be no more rubber duckies and snakes in the grass to worry about.
