Simple app for keeping the running pace or breaking speed records.
enter the target speed and alert levels and the app speaks the
difference of current speed to target speed in kilometers/hour. Just put
on your bluetooth headset and you have a much cheaper version of Recon
There are two different alerts, one when you are slower than target and one for faster speeds.
You can set different pitches of speech for both alerts so you can recognize which alert you are hearing.
You can also set "safe zone" around target speed where no readings are read aloud.
Software uses GPS location and haversine formula to calculate speed. Doppler data not used, sorry.
If you set output filename, app also logs the measurements to file.
app uses no network. Therefore you might need to install first some
other app that uses Google Text-to-speech and installs it. I chose the
"no network" road that you might feel more safe with app. No ads.
UpperFarLimit: Speeds >= TargetSpeed + UpperFarLimit are not read aloud.
UpperPitch: Speech pitch for faster than target speed alerts.
UpperNearLimit: Speeds >= TargetSpeed + UpperNearLimit are read aloud.
TargetSpeed: One setting to set the target speed.
LowerNearLimit: Speeds <= TargetSpeed - UpperNearLimit are read aloud.
LowerPitch: Speech pitch for slower than target speed limits.
LowerFarLimit: Speeds <= TargetSpeed - UpperFarLimit are not read aloud.
Measuring interval: GPS measuring interval in seconds. Depends on your hardware.
Log File: File name for log file. If empty, no log file.
Interval: Sets how often alerts are read aloud. When set for instance
to 3, every third GPS measurement is read aloud. Every measurement will
still be written to screen and to log file.
