aSmart HUD +SpeedCams

aSmart HUD + is simple and clear vehicle digital dashboard featured by

  • HUD mode
It visualizies your
  • current speed
  • average speed,
  • time,
  • heading,
  • altitude,
  • trip elapsed time,
  • distance/time and direction to stored Home location,
  • weather forecast for nearest 48 hours the with 3-hour time interval,
  • maximum reached speed (during the current trip or all your trips), maximum altitude and maximum distance to the starting point of your trip.

    Also it shows
  • color coded distance to the nearest known fixed speed camera;
  • it's speed limit (if known);
  • it's position, relatively to your moving direction, what gives you an idea is the camera in front or behind you;

    On approach aSmartHUD+ will give you sound and visual warning. Warning also will be given in case your speed exceeds the speed limit set for that camera.

    The database includes an information about speed cameras in
  • Europe (whole EU)
  • USA
  • Canada
  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • Brazil
  • South Africa
  • Unated Arab Emirates
  • Singapore
  • HongKong
  • Kuwait
  • Russia
  • Thailand.

    NOTE: It's not guaranteed all speed cameras in your area are included into the database. However, we will release database updates right after the new information will become available.

    The light version of this program without speed cameras database is called "aSmart HUD". You can read more about it here.

  • Tapping the "HUD" icon mirrors all the text, so if you position the iPhone horizontally under your car's windscreen you can see perfectly readable half-transparent reflection of the picture displayed.
    We love this mode! We found it much more convenient compared to traditional car dashboards (especially on the roads of Western Europe, which are full of speed cameras and where you need to watch your speedometer all the time). And last but not the least - it just looks cool.
    Note: this mode works pretty well at night time and twilight, but on direct sunlight the screen brightness can be insufficient.
    A couple of YouTube clips, demonstrating how it looks like: night and rainy day.

  • You can edit the speed cameras database by adding or removing cameras. Also you can change the camera speed limit.
    To get acess to database editing screen tap the "pencil" icon on the "nearest camera" distance indicator. Note, when the GPS satellite signal has low precision the icon is dimmed, and mode is not available.
    To store the speed limit change tap the button where the speed limit value is displayed.

  • "aSmart HUD+" can keep track on 4 speed limits, giving a warning (sound and visual) each time you crossing it. Normally, it's legal speed limits within cities, local roads and high-speed motorways. "Never exceed speed" is the speed you should not exceed under any conditions. For example, it can be a technical limit of your vehicle or the point where government can arrest your driving license.

  • In Photo Cam mode you can quickly take a photo of what's going on the road. Photo will be automatically saved into the Photos Album. Small preview of last recent taken picture is in upper right corner of the screen.

  • The speedometer image, map and a some of other useful information will be placed over your photo.

  • You can access the Google Maps by tapping the "Map" button on the main commands menu.

    Transparency of the Maps could be adjusted by dragging the slide bar on the screen bottom, so you can use speed reading and map at the same time. All standard gestures (like zooming and scrolling) are supported.
    The "pin" button locks map center on your current location.
    You can easily switch between Street, Satellite and Hybrid map types.
    Note: this function uses the internet connection, so depending on your connection plan additional charges may apply.

  • In "ECO" mode, "palm tree leafs" on the left side (if look in Landscape mode) indicating how smooth and economical your driving style is. Every 5 minutes aSmartHUD checks the collected speed data and changing it's color depending on the speed statistics. When you safely driving on highway keeping the constant speed the indicator is green, but if you change the speed often it turns red, reminding that the situation is petentially dangerous becouse you accelerating too sharp. Also, smooth driving results in lower fuel consumption and more harmless for environment.

  • Weather forecast is provided by Norwegian Meteorological Institute and the NRK. "aSmart HUD" uses the 3G or WiFi connection do retrieve the data, each weather update takes about 40-80 kilobytes. You can disable this feature by switching the "Display weather" to "Never". If "Every 3 seconds" option is on, the display will de switched between the weather data and "Distance to Start" in cycle.
    Next two switches define time intervals for the data display. "+3 HR" will show the forecast for the time after 3 hours since cucurrent moment, "+9 HR" - 9 hours, etc.
    Temperature units (C, F) are selectable on the "Units" tab in Preferences.

  • "Landscape" and "Portrait" screen modes supported;
  • You can switch off speed cameras detection by tapping on "nearest camera" info. Indeed, if you are too far from it, it's better to use the screen space for something more useful.

  • "Camera" icon on the "compass" circle indicates the position of the nearest camera. If the camera icon is on top of the screen, it's in front of you, if it's on the bottom, camera already is behind.

  • To get acess to database editing screen tap the "pencil" icon on the "nearest camera" distance indicator. Note, when the GPS satellite signal has low precision the icon is dimmed, and mode is not available. To store the speed limit change tap the button where the speed limit value is displayed.

  • Three different compass styles.

  • By default compass show the direction where you are moving, not the direction your iPhone device is oriented. That means it cannot show your course in case the speed is zero. You can change this behavior by switching on the "Use 3GS Magnetometer" option on Preferences/Display screen tab (option is available only on iPhone 3GS or higher).

  • Trip time display: time elapsed since application startup.

  • Moving time display: time of your trip minus time spent for standing on traffic lights, fueling on petrol stations, etc (i.e. all the time when you are not moving and the speed is zero);

  • Direct distance/time to Home location display: the time is calculated on a basis if your current speed, and should be understood as "minimal time necessary to get to stored Home location on a direct line with current speed". Home location can be reset by tapping the "lightning" icon, located next to the distance;

  • You can select current iPod playlist, skip/rewind/pause/play music items, set the music player in Shuffle or Repeat mode.

  • Speed history log chart is placed on the bottom of the screen. Speed log chart refresh rate and chart style (bars or dots) can be selected in Preferences. With the "Limit Bars" chart style enabled the color of the bar depends on the speed limit you are driving within. Green, if below first speed limit (city), yellow if below second (public roads), etc.

  • Tap the speed indicator to switch into speed fullscreen mode. Cameras info is available there as well.

  • In Preferences, you can specify different measurement units (miles per hour, kilometers per hour, knots and meters per second), display color scheme, speed log chart refresh rate and chart style (bars or dots). With the "Limit Bars" chart style on the color of the bar depends on the speed limit you are driving within. Green, if below first speed limit (city), yellow if below second (public roads), etc.

  • Switch between 12/24 hours time display;

  • Try to switch "Speed camera limit units" to "mph" if you driving in UK or US;

  • Several sound options available: "Electro", "Beep" (just another sound to mark the speed limits) and "Morse", when a3DTrack HUD+ beeps morse-code for "ONE" when you crossing the first speed limit, "TWO" for second, and "THREE" for third. The startup sound is morse-coded word "HELLO".

  • Location Info (longitude and latitude, GPS measurement precision) and some more data is available on separate screen. You can adjust transparency of the "Location Info" screen to use both views at the same time.

    Also you can see the maximum reached speed, altitude or distance from start, for you current trip or for for all the trips you ever did.

  • Several display color schemes are available.
    Green theme:

    Red theme may suit the BMW and Audi drivers:

    While Blue theme looks better in Volkswagen Golf or Passat:

  • Troubleshooting a.k.a FAQ
  • Limitations
    • The program is running only on GPS-enabled iPhones 3G (second generation or higher) with iPhone OS 4.2 or higher. No iPod Touch, 1st-generation iPhones or minor OS versions supported.
    • The precision is affected by the satellite signal quality. On open-sky spaces it's pretty good, but under other conditions can noticeably decrease. Also, after startup it requires some time to locate the necessary satellites, so during first minutes of running the measurement can be less effective. If unsure, use the program only for reference, don't rely on it for 100%.

  • Thanks to everyone for your suggestions about additional functionality, there is a big chance they will be implemented in next version. Please forward your requests or bug reports to
