NavMeter allows you to display speed, altitude, compass, and coordinates indicator over the navigators that don’t provide this informations (like the Google Maps one).

Open NavMeter and enable auto activation. Then open Google Maps and start the navigator: the speedometer will appear; drag it wherever you like with your finger. Tap it quickly if you want to make it disappear for few seconds.
Every time you will start the navigator, the speedometer will appear where you placed it.
If you don’t want it to appear anymore, just disable auto activation.

When the indicators are active, a notification appears. You can toggle between day and night mode and hide indicators from that. If indicators had been activated manually, you can also switch them off.

Indicators are fully customizable: you can edit color, dimensions, shape and transparency. You can choose the unit of measurements you prefer and you can decide if display them or not.

By default, Indicators are activated automatically only with Google Maps navigator. You can activate them with any application simply going to Settings and selecting “Other apps”.

NavMeter features a HUD also that you can activate from menu. Open it and place your device under the windshield: speed, time, altitude and compass will be reflected in it (it works when it’s dark).

NavMeter features a Tasker plugin which provides some actions to enable and disable auto actvation and indicators and to change night-day mode.

Just what I was looking for It is amazing to activate manually worth the price.

Sylvain Saurel

Excellent app NavMeter GPS Maps speedometer is an excellent app. Very useful !

Josh Robert Nay

It's okay in the free version but isn't really useful unless you decide to get the full version

Nicolo Riva

Really nice! It's a little nasty the thing about the full version but never mind...I love it

Dana Kaplar

Free, but.. Not useful without the full version

Archit Patel

Very nice app This is very good application. It is having very good graphics.

Adam Freeman

This is a really well-designed app!

Shane Poelemans

Broken! App closes as soon as I open it please fix asap, no update available ?

Sergio Bastos

Great app, works well and ui is great and easy to use. One thing that would make it virtually perfect would be an option to edit the opacity of the overlay so that you could partially see through the overlays in other apps as sometimes can block crucial info on maps. Keep up the good work!

David Mijares

I love it Expensive for a simple feature, subscription model for ONE feature?

Kriangkrai Aroontheerapoj

Good plug-in for Google Maps

J Scott

Really useful all in one navigation solution!

Steven Whitney

Metric only No conversion easily found

Yusuf Islam

Good Great idea but on Note 5 it never starts automatically. My old Note 3 & 1, no problem

Simon Nobes

Excellent! This is a great addition to Gmaps and any other navigation app that doesn't monitor your actual speed. Ettore Zaffaron, the developer, is a great communicator and responds to questions and suggestions quickly and with care. Well worth the price if you want to be warned of exceeding the speed limit too.

Bala Sundarraj

KMs to Miles? Only KMs? How to change the units.

Ari Nogueira

Does what it says Nice app, works very well. I recommend to everyone. I just suggest to the developer to update the speed limit file because the one used right now by has a little less mapped streets in North America, but works great!

Hari Duseja

Works very well Also app size is so small. Great.

ElDoRado Tab

Very nice and useful app, recommended.

Barbara Anna

Nice Nice navigation application. Good design and easy to use

Iron CapeGames

Excellent app, very usefull.

Aznor Azizul

Amazing app and it brings a lot of value

Pedro Rincon

Everything is good with the app, however the compass jump from N to S from NE to W, I'd like to receive any tip to fix this problem, because I'm thinking is a good and very useful application.

Mike Blt

Excellent app, exactly what is missing from Google Map! And if last version 2.5 adds tolerance for speed limit is even better. Well worth $1.99 to get all the features!

Jim Irvin


Chase Connolly

Great It's really a good idea for an app. I did have some trouble understanding why there should be in app purchases, but the owner responded quickly and clearly and now I get it. I hope this app makes it far. Only reason for four star is that the app itself doesn't look eye catching, maybe some look improvements, more colors?

Diptiranjan Biswal

My Long waiting is over Works as I desired.. The best part is this app Developer is very positive about users feedback and suggestions. Thanks.

Eric Reed

Exactly what I was looking for. Why these features aren't built into Google Maps, I have no idea. I wanted my speed display and direction while using a navigation program. Customization is easy. All of the indicators work on my phone with Google Maps. Future feature: would be nice to calibrate or set the compass options manually. Just a request App works great, added three indicators, customized the colors and sizes. The automatic function is awesome, the indicators only show up when the map program is actually navigating. Highly recommend, adds great functionality to Google Maps.

Jon G.

I really like the multipurpose notification in this app

kishna chauhan

Very usefull Very handy and use full app

Eugene Nepomniashchyi

Updated "When I use Google maps (just Maps w\o navigator) It does not hide indicators when Maps is in background." Actually there is a way, App called "Maps speedometer" does that thing right. You may look into it. Thanks and let us know if you fix that.

Oleg Golovin

Superb application. It takes speed limit data from Here and display for Google Maps. It still has some design issues, for example a general setting of speed units that should change them for "Speed limit" gauge is hidden in "Speed" settings menu. But the author supports the application and answer questions here really fast, so no doubt this all will be fixed.

Liam W

Easily see GPS speed and more I wanted a good way to see my travelling speed according to GPS when navigating with Google Maps. This app does exactly that, even displaying the speed automatically on navigation launch. It seems totally reasonable that the developer must pass on the cost of subscribing to speed limit data service. Displaying limits not something I need, so the app is totally free for me, even ad-free. Excellent work, Ettore! ☺

Anton Fourie

Excellent! Dumped my paid-for Ulysse Speedometer for this app. Will be happy to pay for some refinements, like tracklogging, customising the display and having the direction in degrees. Love it!

Paul Coppage

Excellent I would still be using if my map app hadn't updated to include it.

Zean Droid

I'll give it a 5 star when they add distance so I can see how far I've gone

Ian Prescott

It Works, but.. Simple, straightforward and (almost) perfect for me but British speed signs are in MPH.. would be 5* then.

Anders Frihagen

A Nice program ...does What it says on the box..

Hussein Al-Jiboory

Inconsistent Most of the time not starting when navigating with Google maps

youssef mohamed

Loved it Very usueful

Donald Willians

Liers The app is free but if you want the speed limit you have to pay

Michael Firebaugh

If I could take away this one star I would. You hot my hopes up. Made it seem like I could use the app without paying. If I could take away this one star I would. You hot my hopes up. Made it seem like I could use the app without paying. I'm broke man. That's why I looked up free. I don't even care about the speed limit. Just how fast I'm going. Why can't I use it without the speed limit???

John Johny

Wow..Great app Its cool app for maps but it needs more improvments such as more accuracy and immidiat showing of speeds it showd show new speed changes as quickly as the speed of travling changes..and it shuld free for speed limits too. Making Free app with quality is always awesome

Nathan Simmons

Makes Google Maps even better! I love speed limit integration into map applications and devices but sadly Google Maps doesn't have this - until now! For the price you get very regular updates and 99% accurate speed limits along with other measurements (speaking from experience, I found 9 roads in 10 to be the correct limit).

Johan Willem

Worked fine until update on 1 July now it won't start. 》Thank You for the update, fixed start issue. Great App!

Able Whittaker

Golden, just what I wanted! Very impressed, had a paid app for this previously and it no longer works with my S7. This app is perfect for what it's meant to do, very happy. :D

Neil Aris Castro

Awesome add-on Love the versatility and customization fits my needs for GPS data

Brian Rasmussen

This is a great app. I would give it 5 stars and would be willing to contribute if the HUD were configurable (choose which components to display) and if there were a widget to turn on the HUD.

Hussein Al-Jiboory

Works well Exactly what I was looking for

Liam W

Hieu Nguyen

Great app! I hope that the app allow to enter a "negative value" to Speed Limit Tolerance. Because, GPS Speedometer value is always lower than real speed. Thanks for this useful app! Update: Zaffaroni replied and added the featured I commented. Worked great! Thanks for your great app!

Asif Ali

Good Thanks again for your help in making our way to the UK, so I am looking for. the only thing that we are a bit like the idea is that the new year, but I have a great.

James Groleau

Works great. I would like to see an option to show degrees 0 - 360 in place of compass direction.

Matt Sargent

Works great under Marshmallow. Previously had some problems with auto-start, but the Marshmallow release lets me turn off the "optimization" on an app by app basis, and now it works flawlessly. Only suggestion is for more color options, to better match the Google Maps graphics.

Rick Wade

Preliminary observation What I want is the speed limit to overlay on Google Navigation. I wonder, though, how much Here maps charges apps like this to use their services when this app charges users $1.99 per month while the app Maps Speed Limits, which also uses Here, charges $0.99 per year.

Trevor Aiston

Felt bit misled Only worked with Google maps and no audio alerts. Cancelled subscription

Larry Dalsoren

Please fix this paid app Why does this app keep appearing in the notification, every time i exit out of an app this app is linked to this app hangs in notification, even though foreground mode is unchecked.

Tom McWilliams

Great app on the phone. Would like it to work on my connect car radio with Google Maps and Navigation.

Cynthia Burch Horton

Half the time it doesn't show up when I'm running Google maps/GPS.

Hussein Al-Jiboory

Works well Exactly what I was looking for. Would have been nicer if I could change the color and background transparency.

Peter Dziubek

Definitely need to pay to use..... unless there's a magical button somewhere.

Trevor Jones

Speed Can't get speed limit to activate
