Hi,
After an upgrade to Telmap on my Blackberry last week it is now showing my speed in the bottom left corner...

Which is nice except that it shows that I am travelling at about 30MPH when I'm standing still and as soon as I'm moving it shows random figures up to 400+ MPH...

I didn't realise my little Citroen C2 was that quick... Laughing

For me it's been a good indication. I assume it's down to the GPS signal accuracy / reliability.

I think the speed is a factor of 10 out, 400mph was really 40mph. A typo somewhere in the code that displays mph
