High precisionRNS:: logo

RNS:: Speedometer GPS is the first GPS speedometer for Palm OS. It provides fairly accurate readings based on the GPS data received from the satellite system. It can measure the instantaneous speed of any moving vehicle.

The ordinary speedometer in your car is normally not that precise - tolerance of a 10% error is allowed! Further inaccuracies might occur due to wear on tires, or their actual size if replaced. Conditions such as temperature, pressure, and vehicle load might add to that. Finally, car speedometers are intentionally set to show a little bit higher speed than the actual speed of your vehicle - this is supposed to help you obey speed limits.

Skins supportRNS:: logo
RNS:: Speedometer GPS can be greatly customized with the use of skins. You may switch them at any moment to get a brand new look of the application. We have created several high resolution skins for your Palm device:
Standard skin for RNS:: Speedometer GPS Golden skin for RNS:: Speedometer GPS
Digital skin for RNS:: Speedometer GPS Antique skin for RNS:: Speedometer GPS
Modern skin for RNS:: Speedometer GPS Silver skin for RNS:: Speedometer GPS
