    Can you PLEASE update the app so that the 0-60 and 1/4 mile times are recorded with 10ths of second included? IE – 6.49 seconds – not just whole seconds? I love this app but don’t like how I always get 6.0 for my time. The “fastest droid” app can do this and your app is better (besides this one feature)


  • Mike, we can’t get milliseconds as the GPS receiver reports the position only once in a second (at best). However, we’ll see how these modes can be improved in the future versions.

    I’m new to using GPS apps on my phone, so the problem may be “between the chair and the keyboard”.

    Phone/Software info:
    version of software: SpeedView 2.5.2 Free
    phone: HTC Droid Eris
    OS: Firware: 2.1 / Baseband: / Krnl: 2.6.29…. / Build #: 2.37.605.4 / Software #: 2.37.605.4

    I’ve been using the software to track my walks. (approx 2.5 to 3.0 miles), then I export and email the results to myself. On my laptop, I open the file with Google Earth.

    The problem is that about half the times I’ve used the software, the last 2/10 mile or so isn’t displayed in Google Earth.

    Is this a setting I can control or some other factor I need to consider?

    Thank you for your assistance.


  • Rich, this is quite weird. We’ll look into this, and no, I think it’s not related to any settings you can control.

    Thank you Stephen. I was also thinking it may be related to my location relative to Cell phone towers and/or GPS units. But it doesn’t happen all the time.

    What are the headers for the GPX log file saved? Example: lattitude,longitude,name,desc etc.,

    @Andrew Thanks for the quick reply! Found out its latitude first and then longitude! :)

  • Andrew

    Yep, sorry, my bad. Too much work going on :)

  • I’m extremely delighted that I determined this specific article. This’s exactly the advice I had been searching for.

    Was the 0 to 100 km/h time implemented for non-US and non-UK users? I’m in Australia and nothing appears :(

    Hi, i am using the Pro Version on Xperia X10 and it is a very nice app, really good work! But one minor thing – is it possible to add a feature for selecting the background ? In my opinion the readability on sunny days would be better with a mono-colored background :)
