    I know there are many apps that work as a speedometer, but I'm specifically looking for a widget that displays speed based on gps.

    Is anybody aware of such a thing?

    Thanks

    I found one by searching "speedo" or "speedometer" and something called "Speedometer Widget" came up.


    Hope this helps!

    I can't believe I never found that. But I don't think I ever searched for "speedometer" widget.

    That's exactly what I was looking for.

    Thanks!

    Been trying it on my rooted DroidX and it never runs (yes, GPS is enabled). It just says "Off." Other non-widget dash programs are running fine.

    Neil,

    Did you touch the globe icon in the top-left of the widget area? The widget has on/off control so the GPS doesn't run all the time.

    Damn, I got to start reading the instructions :p I didn't realize that the globe turned it on and off. Thanks ;)
