BlackBerry Speedometer App for Internal and External GPS

Comments

Skylab Mobilesystems has launched a speedometer app that uses the GPS to track your speed and display it in a variety of units including m/s (meters per second), km/h (kilometers per hour), mi/h (miles per hour), knots (identical with nautical miles per hour). Skylab has suggested that this app isn’t very effective when walking in the city, because tall buildings might block or reflect the GPS signal. The GPS works best in an open area outside, which makes this app perfect for a hobby such as boating.

Features include:

  • Hooks up to internal and external Bluetooth GPS receivers.
  • Shows current speed provided by GPS receiver.
  • Large digits for easy reading when you’re on the move.
  • GPS can be turned on/off manually.

This speedometer app is very reasonably priced at $2.99. More information in the store.
