Cell phones can certainly do a lot nowadays. You can use them to browse the web, take pictures, play games and even make phone calls. It never even occurred to me that you can also use them as speedometers that measure your speed and distance.
I recently came across DigiHUD Speedometer which does just that. It uses your phone’s GPS to perform its magic and works so well that I’ve invested in a cell phone mount for my bike just so I can continue using it without my hanging on to my phone.
The only downside is that it uses your phone’s GPS and won’t work without it. Prior to embarking on my two-wheel venture I need to make sure that the GPS is on and that my phone can pick up the signal, which takes some time but the wait is worth it. This app is a real marvel.
