    Hey, not sure if this is the right place to post this up, but I figure there's going to be a lot of you coming from other non-Android handsets.

    I've got a TP 2 - good ol' WinMo. I've grown pretty attached to it and there's a couple of apps I'm -really- going to miss and I hope a couple of you know of some good alternatives:

    GPS Speedo(.exe) - Just a single exe file, all it does is make the whole screen white, with large black numbers in the center. It used the phone's GPS to measure your speed (in MPH or KPH). Any Android equivalent?

    NanoGroove - Grooveshark for the phone... What was nicest about it is that it was kind enough to leave a file on your storage card called groovy.mp3 that happened to be the last song you played with Nanogroove. All you had to do was rename the mp3 to keep the song forever. Any equivalent for GrooveShark (or music downloading) for Android?

    OBDGauge - Datalogging of OBD II cars via serial or, in my case, bluetooth. I used this to datalog my car, or when I'm working on tuning other vehicles. This one is kinda indespensible. I'm really hoping someone will know of an alternative to this one. It connects over bluetooth by connecting via BT serial port.

    GAlarm - Excellent alarm app. I use my phone to wake me up every morning. This will re-play alarms after 10 minutes, unless totally dismissed, even require a simple math problem to dismiss/snooze the alarm. I don't have such high requirements I just want a good morning alarm clock style app that will wake me up every morning.

    I'd say I'll miss WMWiFiRouter/USB tethering but PDANet should do the trick, and FroYo is supposed to have an app too (bet the carriers kill it).

    So anyone got any idea where to get equivalents to these programs? Or maybe ask in here about some apps that yourself may be looking for!

    GPS Speedo is just that. Search for it in the market. When you get the phone of course
