Google Maps recently gained the ability to display your driving speeds. The speedometer can be useful when you are constantly looking at the Maps while driving. Plus, if your vehicle’s speedometer is broken, this can be a useful little addition!

How to enable speedometer in Google Maps

To enable speedometer in Google Maps, follow these simple steps:

  • Open the Google Maps app.
  • Tap on the three-line button (hamburger menu) on the top left.
  • Now tap on Settings.
  • In the Settings page, scroll down and tap on Navigation settings.
  • Scroll down to the Driving options section and toggle the Speedometer option on.
  • Now, enter your destination and start navigating. Your driving speed should show up once you start moving.
If you don’t see the speedometer option on your device yet, make sure you have the latest update of Google Maps installed. This feature was rolled out back in June this year, and it is available for all Indian users now.
