Android-Speedometer : Simple speedometer app and widget with speed camera warning and offline maps from OpenStreetMap for Android 2.2+ (and some 2.1 with different problems – use at your on risk ;-))
(screenshots in German but app in English)
For problems with offline maps i have to contact the MapsForge team for help. I only use there framework. Therefor I could not help directly.
Tip: on small screens hide timer or compass in settings
numeric values for:
– speed (km/h, mph or kn)
– altitude (from GPS or webservice)
– cyclometer (km, mi, nm)
– digital clock
– max. speed
– average speed
– route recording and speed trend diagram
– accelerometer with variable start and stop speed
– time to distance (eg quarter mile)
– location (link to map available)
– available satellites and accuracy
– anchor alarm (leaving radius alarm)
– Headup-Display (HUD = MIRRORED view)
– automatic night mode
– custom font colors for day and night mode
– landscape view
– widget for homescreens (Widgets do not work properly if app is installed on SD card. If you want to use the widget you must install the app in the internal memory of your device, if not App2SD is full supported.)
– save location and start pedestrian navigation to it (find your car)
– gpx, kml and csv file export and send for data exchange (e.g. with google earth)
– spoken speed warnings (any number of adjustable speeds) or spoken speed (NEEDS to install Text-to-Speech!!!)
– speed camera warning (radar) for many countries with metric units (no US or UK)
– map view with online maps from Google Maps or offline maps from OpenStreetMap (MapsForge)

Android-Speedometer user reviews:
One of the very good features is that the app runs in background. So one doesn’t have to stare at screen all the time. Although this means higher power consumption.
Love the heads up display.
Nice app with lots of nice features. Also thumbs up for civic in a video (:
