Pre-loaded Blackberry Maps - Speedometer - Blackberry App World

My inital thread was off base...  I did not realize what the Accelerometer did until further research.

 

The Blackberry Maps that came pre-loaded on my Z30, used to display the speed at which you were traveling and now does not.  I tried to leave a review, rather than post here, but Blackberry App World keeps telling me I need to download it first, before I can leave a review. 

 

As stated, this was already pre-loaded on the Z30.  I see that they have a free speedometer app, but the preloaded map should display the speed you're traveling like it did with my old Torch 9810.

So, this worked also displaying your speed on your Z30, and now does not?

I tried it for the first time last night, and the blue arrow followed my progress as I drove home, but did not indicate the speed I was driving

Correct, I don't believe it will.

 

Other apps will do that. Search your app world for speedometer, there are probably a dozen free and paid apps.

Re: Pre-loaded Blackberry Maps - Speedometer - Blackberry App World

I have downloaded one of the free apps.  It actually works quite well.  But you might as well have that feature on the maps...  It had for the 9810, why not for the new phones?
