I use OsmAnd when riding my bicycle.

I would like it to display my current speed in a corner of the screen or somewhere similar.

It should not interfere with normal use of OsmAnd, in particular it should not be a different screen.

Is there a way to do this in OsmAnd, via an option or plugin or custom fork or anything?


In OsmAnd:

  • Open the navigation drawer (swipe from left or bottom left button)
  • “Configure screen” (Gear icon)
  • “Right panel” should have a line for “Speed”, tick that.

The speed will be shown, somewhat small, in the top right list. I think standard is to show only the number of satellites, but there are a few items that can be shown there.

Eta: I also set “Trasparent skin” at the bottom of the “Configure screen” list. Makes the speed &c. a bit less obtrusive.


You could use an "overlay" like e.g. Ulysse Speedometer, Map Speedometer, GPS HUD Speedometer, DigiHUD Speedometer, or Navigation Speedometer:

DigiHUD as map overlay Ulysse
DigiHUD and Ulysse as map overlays (source: Google Play; click images for larger variants)

Though above screenshots are not from OsmAnd, the overlays work the same there :)
