Provide a speedometer and compass widget which can be used in Car Dock Home v3, or any other widget supporting app, while in car mode.

Uses the gps for speed and bearing. It does not use compass sensor in device, so you will have to be moving to see any change in direction.

Tap the widget to bring up prefs screen... Options are:
MPH or KM/H display
Font for speedometer reading
Color of speedo and compass
Background color of the widget
Transparency control of that background.

You might not see speed unit change until the next update from the GPS. If the gps is not sending updates, "NO GPS" will be displayed. Updates are requested from your phone at maximum update frequency. When not in car mode, it will also show "NO GPS" as it does not receive gps updates outside of car mode.

    App hasn't been updated in over 2 years. Incompatible with Nexus 7.

    Does the job nicely, new fonts make it easy to view. However as requested by others, please remove the compass or at least make it optional, I've no use for it plus it makes the widget unnecessary wide, without it the speedo could easily fit into a 1x1 space which would be a terrific improvement.
