What's Awesome About Speedo Minder™ ?

Just To Name A Few Reasons.....

FAQs and Answers


1. What Speed Limit data does Speedo Minder use?


- Speedo Minder uses OSM Maps API for online speed limit data, to give you your local speed limit.

2. What is OSM?


- Open Street Maps is an open source mapping data set. It’s free to use and relies on community members for updating and correcting road data. Anyone can join and improve the road data in their area. Note the “O” icon on the main page is for OSM.

3. Why do I have to be online?


- You need the phone to be open to the sky for the GPS signal and online to receive the OSM data refreshing every 20 seconds.

4. How much data am I using?


- The packet of data sent to the OSM database server is tiny.

5. What happens if I don’t get Open Street Maps speed limit data in my area?


- If you find the bottom circle is not populating with the local speed limit it’s likely because OSM is not updated for that road. After 3 x 20 seconds ‘Searching’ cycles, the app will pop up an option for manual input of local speed limits. Alternatively, tap the OSM icon to bring up Manual Input of Speed Limit from the icons available and choose the correct limit for your road. If you wish, you can join the OSM community and update your local roads. When you believe OSM is available again simply tap the OSM icon again to go back to auto OSM API speed limit updates.

6. What happens if the Open Street Maps speed limit is wrong for a road in my area?


- If you find the bottom circle is populating with the wrong local speed limit it’s likely because OSM is in need of an updated for that road. For now, tap the OSM icon to bring up Manual Input of Speed Limit from the icons available and choose the correct limit for your road.
If you wish you can join the OSM community and update your local roads.

7. Why is there a speaker icon in the top left corner?


- Occasionally you’ll want to temporarily silence the alerts. Tapping the speaker icon will pause alerts for 30 seconds.
You’ll see a line across the icon for 30 seconds.

8. What happens when I tap the OSM icon?


- See the Answer to Question 5.

9. Why do I need to give permission for location services?


- The app needs your GPS location in order to know the local speed limit data for the bottom circle.

10. What are the best settings in configurations?


- Drivers will find their own configuration to best suit their driving conditions, however setting the ‘over-speed’ to +3 and the ‘Repeat Alert Frequency’ to every 4 seconds will work for most drivers.

11. When will the BLE device be available?


- The BLE device is in prototype and soon will launch on Kickstarter. You will be offered a free App upgrade if you buy a BLE vibrating Device.

12. What are the Connect and TestBuzz buttons for?


- We are using Connect and TestBuzz while developing the BLE Vibrating Device.

13. What is ‘Run in Background?


- If you need to answer a call the app will continue to ‘run in background’.

14. What is ‘Run in Foreground?


- This is a feature for future updates.
