Google has gone from being a simple search tool to a whole cloud of tools for the user, from the option to save files, photos, browser, search engine, email, to map and satellite applications.

The Google Maps application  has features that greatly help the user to travel on alternate or little-known routes, the traveler to see maps of other countries, and even as a guide to dangerous streets.

This is the speedometer function, an option that is available for all Google Maps applications updated to date.

Differences between Google speedometer and car speedometer

As already mentioned, the speedometer allows the driver to know the speed of the vehicle. But what distinguishes it from the speedometer of the vehicles themselves is the ability to know the speed limit of the roads. With these two data, the application marks through the user interface if the driver has exceeded the established limit. This is done through the speedometer itself, which will change from red to black.
