Pitot is a GPS/GLONASS speedometer for your SailfishOS device. It will show you the speed of your device in big, friendly letters. It supports all orientations and has a bunch of different units to display the speed in.

Note that due to the inaccuracy of the builtin GPS receiver on the Jolla, the following problems may occur:

  • Speed is measured in increments of about 0.25 meters per second, so between 0.25 and 0.5 there are no other values.
  • Speed values may fluctuate rapidly depending on the quality of the GPS fix.
  • Sometimes the device's GPS receiver thinks it is moving at a constant rate, even though you have stopped.
  • Getting a GPS fix may take a long time.

These are issues with the device's GPS receiver and/or QtPositioning implementation and cannot be fixed.

To run this app, you need a Sailfish OS version with Qt 5.2 (Uitukka or higher).

Wish list: an option to start/stop gps automatically when no other gps app is running.
