GPS & Speed.

Recommended Posts

As known many speedo readings are inaccurate and can be at a slightly lower speed than read. 

On motorcycles forum someone said I could do a GPS with my phone if so can one of you tech gurus here tell me how to do it in easy non-technical language.

Thanks.

Not sure whether I got it right:

you want to use GPS to measure actual speed?

Not so much interested in route planning/map?

There is a multitude of apps for reading GPS data which incl. location, time, speed, direction.

On my Android phone I use "GPS Test" from "Chartross Limited".

As my chair stands still, not much to see right now :biggrin:

Up here there are still roads so quiet you can drive from milestone to milestone (1 km actually) and (stop)watch the time.

Drive 80 km/h shown by speedo, drive 1 km, 45s would be exactly 80 km/h.

(1 min = 60 km/h)

After having changed tire size on my car it is quite accurate and not "allowed/desired":

showing higher than actual speed is the rule/law in Germany and maybe other countries (like 7%).

Thanks I guess I ask for help because on motorcycles forum they reckon you can check how accurate your speedometer reading is.

Thanks again I guess that is something I can do if I got someone good with a stopwatch. 

The problem as I see it is pressing a phone screen to get readings I don't see how they do it on there own.
