    Just downloaded speedwatcher, a great app to monitor your speed while driving and get notified when exceeding the selected speed limit. Works just great for me...

    You have to adjust the speed limit manually? It doesn't know what it is based on where you are?

    SpeedHUD does the same thing and is free.

    You just have to set a speed it warns you at. Nice idea I guess, but while driving you would think its a good idea to watch the speedometer from time to time...

    I have two apps on my phone that can tell my speed:

    -> GPS Speedo - It gives me a nice large display showing my speed, average speed, and max speed. It can be reset rather quickly as well. It displays in landscape mode. Free in the market.

    -> GPS Status - It provides all of the necessary GPS information, longitude, laditude, orientation, heading, speed, and altitude. It also shows the pitch and tilt of the phone and contains an accelerometer. Displays in portrait mode. Free in the market.
