Fix: Why Don’t I Have Speedometer on Google Maps
Some users have reported that they are unable to get the speedometer option on the Google Maps app. So, for those peoples, I would like to tell them that they should update their Google Maps app. Why? Because this feature is available in the latest version, not an old one. But, if you have done that and still you are unable to see the option of Speedometer on Google Maps app. Then, let me tell you one more thing that speedometer feature is available in the selected countries only and that is Argentina, Australia, US, UK, Canada, Brazil, Sweden, Belgium, Portugal, Czech Republic, and India. However, if your country is not on the list then don’t worry because Google is doing the work to add your country as well.
This was all about how you have to enable and use the Google Maps speedometer feature. If your country is not supported by Google Maps right now. Then, you can wait until it gets supported by Google Maps. However, if you still want any speedometer right now then you can use many third-party speedometer apps for the same purpose. I hope this guide has helped you a lot in this thing. If you know someone who badly needs this guide then do share it with that.
