Hi everyone,

We're excited to announce that Google Maps on Android will soon  display your speedometer information - so you can see how fast you're going right within the app.

Speedometer is available globally for Android users. 

This feature is ON by default, and here are the steps to turn if off if you want. 
  1. On your Android device, open the Google Maps app.
  2. Tap Menu Settings Navigation settings.
  3. Under "Driving options," turn on/off Speedometer
If the speed limits feature is available in your location, the speedometer in the app will let you know if you’re driving too fast. The speed indicator will change colors if you go over the speed limit.

Note: Speedometers shown in the Google Maps app are for informational use only. Make sure to use your vehicle’s speedometer to confirm your actual driving speed and always be careful while driving.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Safe Driving !

I don't need a spedometer on the app when I can clearly see that on my dashboard.  If you want to add something useful, allow users to add known locations of automated traffic enforcement cameras and devices a.k.a. speed and traffic signal cameras.

I'm skeptical about its accuracy.

Noticed this the other day. Maybe add a audio warning beep or notification if you are spedding 5 or 10 MPH over the posted limit? This addition would be especially helpful around speed trap notifications. Thanks for the additional function though!
