‘iHud’ Will Tell You How Fast You’re Going Without Endangering Your Life

iHud — Utilities — Free

You can pop into iTunes and find several dozen apps that will use the GPS in your iPhone to create an accurate speedometer, but most of them have a major problem: You have to look down.

But iHud tries to solve that issue. You open it, and your velocity appears. It reads backwards, but if you place your phone up under your windshield, the reflection will look right, and you won’t have to look away from the road to check your speed.

I’m not sure how you keep your phone from sliding off your dash when you turn, but that’s for the engineers.

    Evan, I don’t know about your particular car there in Nebraska, but my car here in California, and all other cars I’ve ever ridden in or driven everywhere in the world have a built-in speedometer that tells me how fast I am going. Why on earth would I need an iPhone app to tell me that?

    could anyone explain to me how the mirrored 3 is supposed to look right on my windshield? it is supposed to be mirrored upside down, not left/right…. this would look totally wrong in the reflection…. i don’t get it :)
