What's new in beta version? What's next?

Beta version 1.9. 

The first beta release of version 1.9 is planned for March 15th, 2018. What to expect?

Option for showing whole current track on the main map

Whole currently being recorded track can be shown on the main map (Google, Apple, blank and offline). As always, you can "pin" any previously recorded track to the main map (light blue), while current track will be shown in red:

By default this option is off. To enable, open common map settings and you'll find new options down to the bottom:

New in version 1.9 is also ability to hide the "tail" completely. If you choose to show the tail, option to show the whole currently being recorded track as a tail will be available.


  • Performance of viewing and exporting huge tracks is greatly improved.


Following areas are being considered for version 1.9:
  • 0-X acceleration
  • optional automatic tracking
  • tax reports
  • trip planner
  • OBD?
  • dashcam?
  • routing instructions in trip planner
  • routing in the map
  • routing in the HUD
  • optional real time speed/location sharing with parents/family/friends
Plus ideas you'll keep adding, as always! :)

  • Route planner and optimizer.
  • Automatic tracking.
  • Tax/reimbursement reports.
  • Tags on trips and tracks.
  • Monthly stats (also as infotainment). Mileage by year/season/month/week or tag.
  • 0-X acceleration timer.
  • KMZ waypoints IMPORT so waypoints' images can be imported.
  • Time limited speed limit signs.
  • OBD2
  • My suggestion would be if it could be possible to automatically upload the black box logging in regular times to e.g Dropbox folder. (Stefan via email)
  • Land meter. Indicates the angle of car slope or tilt — pitching and rolling
  • Lean angle for bikers
  • Turn by turn navigation - online Apple. Many, many +1s.
  • Own vector maps
  • Apple watch app

Repository of ideas to grab from

Small to mid size items

  • Indicator to show if you are going up or down. Maybe having elevation green if ascending and red if descending (Cannery rogue via review).

  • I love this app! It has all I need for driving at quick glance/ touch as I trek across the state and back to visit my fiancée doing her residency. The full screen map mode is my favorite with the music controls on the side. My suggestions would be, in order of importance. 1) Please have the option to put the map in a true night mode, not just make it dimmer. See how Google Maps does it for reference. 2) In full screen map mode please give the option to adjust the size of the speed. It is a bit small now, so a few options would be nice. 3) Again in full screen map mode, if I could move the music controls to either the bottom or the right side I'd be very happy.

  • I want to be able to record on camera at the same time with the GPS in speed (Garry via email)

  • Choose the default view to the initiation of the application .... the top would have a speed limit database and to link alerts to the database (with% in user choice ). (With manual selection maintains the view). michel.dani23 via review (French AppStore)

  • Analogue speedometer with adjustable top speed (Zach Grasley via review)
  • Hi Stan, I hope u don't mind but I have come up with a new suggestion that may make Speedometer very appealing to car enthusiasts like myself. Adding a dyno bhp graph functionality. You have everything you need, the starting speed, input a few things about the car weight etc and you can work out the estimated whp/bhp graph from the accelerometers remember to allow for inclined/declined. (Brian via email)
  • Is there any way of suppressing the notifications I get on the iPhone like texts and calendar alerts! These come up and cover up the speedo readings. Thanks (Stewart via email).
  • - calculate mpg based on a button to note a fill up with gallons added as an input and tank capacity as a stored setting (Kurt via beta invitation)
  • Large speed display at the top then below that across and not as large but easily see able, distance, time travelled, may be compass, music and menu only. I'm not sure about altitude. 
    Speech control music would help. (Viken via email). 
  • Play/pause button being right next to the flag (starts new track) dropped my current data unintentionally with no option to resume track from the track list... Separation of the buttons and ability to resume tracks would be nice. (Justin via email)
  • Deep search in the app (waypoints and tracks)
  • Auto background on power cord on/off
  • MPVolumeView (easier selection of the sound output)
  • Add counters reset confirmation dialog to avoid incidental reset of counters.
  • Give a chance to download only the missing zoom levels for the offline map!
  • More options for a speed limit announcement - beep instead of voice, lets say (Waze does it this way)
  • Option to keep speed limits in a dedicated collection
  • Dedicated lane camera type
  • RADAR View (view cameras monitored approach on a live map on in a dedicated "radar" view with no map). Now done by a waypoint monitor panel.
  • SPOTIFY integration
  • Categorize track optimization modes as driving, sport, research
  • Raw log and sessions replay for the accelerometer and tilt/roll data.

Mid to huge size items

  • Automatic speed limits - try OSM data (planned for beta in November 2016)
  • Route planner. Optimize route between multiple waypoints.
  • Auto miles as a free in-app
  • Wifi back/rare view camera to be shown automatically when switched on.
  • Turn by turn navigation - online (Google + Apple). Many, many +1s. (Scheduled for after iOS10 release).
  • Vector maps
  • Turn by turn navigation - offline
  • COST tracking module
  • Community cloud (doing research now, building a base: going the Erlangy/NoSql/Postgre path)
    • keep data, settings
    • cost and reports
    • follow community members on a map
  • Gas prices information
  • ETA to waypoints (+ in a different way - based on a recorded track)
  • Apple watch app

The list above is based on YOUR ideas and developer is totally open to accepting new ideas. You can add your ideas or give +1 (important to set priorities!) to existing via your reviews or emailing the developer (star button). Here is a review link for a FREE or FULL versions.
