So I created this free app to learn a thing or two about Android programming under Java. Since the app was fine and worked well I created a Google Play account and uploaded it there. Hope you like it .
If you would like to report a problem or give me some advice please, let me know
GPS Speedometer & Flashlight
It acts as a normal speed gauge, which you may find in any car, showing the velocity of the vehicle you are in.
There is also a flashlight available. You turn it on and off by simply clicking the green button, located in the top right corner of the app.
NEW: In miles per hour (MPH), there is a "Preferences" menu now.
Some features of the speed app include:
-Shows you your current GPS position - Longitude, Latitude and Altitude, as well as your top speed.
-Your current speed and your maximum velocity, according to the sattelites.
-The pitch and roll of the vehicle you are in (the device must be in upright position according to the vehicle)
-The analog speedometer dial can be either in miles or kilometers per hour.
HUD - heads up display
-You can switch to HUD mode, which will show you your velocity digitally with large green numbers.
Mirror HUD mode
-A mirror view of the digits, allowing you to put your phone on the dash of the vehicle, so that the readings of your speed in kilometers per hour can be reflected from the windshield at night.
*Tested both on Samsung Galaxy S III and a Chinese phone with Android 2.3.4
