Information:
Please leave some feedback, the more detailed the better.

This beta will run till 12/12/2010, at that point the file will be automatically unshared and deleted. So please download and give feedback.

About the application:
This is just a basic heads up display application with a bit more info than the ones that I was seeing on the market. It displays your current Speed, direction and time in both regular display and a HUD mode(where it flips the image vertically). To enable hud mode simply tap the screen. To switch back, just tap the screen once more. You can also change the speed units from MPH to KPH by tapping the settings button in the bottom right corner. This application makes use of the GPS for speed and direction, and the internal system clock for the time.

Please note, the application may not function as intended, in this case please leave a reply with what happened, and any steps required to reproduce the error.

Thanks

Updated the beta build to which will most likely be the final beta before release(any major bugs pending of course)

Changelog:
*Added settings menu to switch between KPH and MPH
*Properly calculates correct speed based on setting
*Fixed large number showing across screen
*Added speed type display below speed

You have to unlock your phone and then use xapdeploy which is part of the SDK in the dev toolkit for Win Pohne.

BTW installed just fine and it appears to be working as intended with the exception of instead of stating 0 when you are not moving is states NAN?

Device: HTC Surround
Provider: Telus

Works on my device with no flaws however I wasn't moving so I'll update my post when I get a chance to try. The app did display "0" and not "waiting for GPS signal" so I am assuming it is communicating with the GPS properly.

Thanks for that bit of feedback, it seems I fixed the previous issue of it displaying "NAN" when you were still, if it isn't displaying waiting for GPS that means it should be finding your location properly. Let me know how it goes after trying it out while moving. if all goes well it should find its way into the market.

So when I am moving it shows a 6-7 digit number that runs off of the screen, seems to change when I change speed but the number makes no sence.
