Fastest Max Speed

 

Hi all,

New to the forum - love it so far.
Just bought a Nuvi 680 and was pokin around and came across the airline post.

Thought it might be fun for people to post their max speed attained for braggin rights and all. Did a search for this kind of post and didn't find anything so I appologize in advance if this topic has been started already.

So far mine is 51.4 mph, but it will be increasing.

Long way to go

You've got a long way to go. People are taking them on airplanes and beating your speed by over 10x.

Oh yeah

Yeah I was kinda jokin about the 51.4 mph since I only turned it on for the drive to work yesterday.

I've seen about 16.7x that amount on a downhill mach run. I'm sure some old Blackbird pilots/austronauts have some great pics of doing some moving across the ground.

Best quote about speed I ever saw was from an old Blackbird guy, "Did Nebraska today in seven minutes. That's the only was to do Nebraska."

Mine is 581 mph on a flight

Mine is 581 mph on a flight to Cancun. Think I saw someone posted a higher one yesterday

The fastests i've seen is 1.4M which according to Google equals 1065.69 mph (but alot of that is altitude/pressure/temp dependent if I recall - I always sucked at the reverse ICE-T calculations).

But no photo of it yet so it don't count, but I'll try to take my new toy to work with me sometime.

Fastest Max Speed

Right now mine is showing only 102 mph. I don't know how that happened since I drive a 1997 Nissan pickup!

Not doing anything worth a darn.

Max Speed

Perhaps we should distinguish between terrestrial speed and air speed!

Anyway my max is 625 mph of course on a commercial flight to Chicago.

Officer I'm sorry I was going the wrong way on that one-way street but my GPS told me to turn left ... Oh, I'm still getting a ticket, okay then the GPS will see ya in court!

I agree, air and land speed

I agree, air and land speed can't be compared.

Max land: 103
Max air: 544

I can just see it now..... Sorry officer I just wanted to have the fastest recorded land speed to post at Poi Factory.

622 MPH Air Speed

My Zumo 550 has seen 622MPH while on a flight from ElPaso to Denver. I have yet to top that on the road...

I had 660 on a flight from Denver to Indianapolis once. I was pretty impressed.

Max Land Speed

Faster than a Cessna 152

at 128 mph you were going faster then a cessna 152's Vno speed (maximum structural cruising speed) of 111 kts or 127 mph. Way to go!!!

That musta been at 3:00 a.m. on a Monday morning because that's the only time it wouldn't be crowded.

"You can't get there from here"

Do I need to change a setting?

I was on a flight from Philly to Orlando and back and could not get my Nuvi 360 to lock onto enough sats to record a top speed. I was in a window seat and everything. Do I need to change a setting or something?

I guess anyone driving (not flying) over the legal speed limit installed speedtrap POIs? or is there one posted?

Hummm....

Did it get shipped on the concord?

I got 154 mph in my S2000

It was a dumb statement

Yeah, I guess my statement didn't make much sense! LOL.

I've used my Legend on several flights and I usually have to put the unit right against the window to get a signal.

F-16 perhaps?

mjshaw11 wrote:

The Concord is too slow. F-16 perhaps? Supposedly they top out at 1500mph.

I suppose the top speed logged is just some fluke, but for now i'm leaving it in there.

Concord

The Concord was capable of Mach 2 which is around that speed, but I was just being sarcastic I highly doubt it was a speed recorded from shipping.

Red Light Warning

On my trip home from Memphis this AM we flew over Chicago. We were already slowing down for my destination of Milwaukee. Because of discussion on this web site, I decided I would try my Garmon 350 out, and follow the trip home. I was alarmed (Audible warnings!) that we blew or should I say flew through a Red Light down below at 432 mph!!! I have to remember to turn down or off the volume next trip. P.S. I did get some strange looks from other passengers too. smile

So proximity alerts don't account for altitude...

That's funny. smile

To all the speednuts out there (including me)...

Dear speednuts (including myself),

It is important to remember the following chart:

Speed -> Cops -> Tickets -> Higher Insurance -> Less money to buy the next map updates (or a new GPS) -> Confusion while driving in unknown place -> GPS NO HELP!

Happy speeding!

I disagree...

Speed -> Driving Smart -> having a 'rabbit', radar detector (a good one), CB, and common sense -> no tickets and no higher insurance.

Drive stupid, then I agree with the above.

I thought you have all of that hardware, but you still got tickets. Maybe it is the second item that was missing. lol

Well... You obviously do not drive often in NYC/NJ/CT area, so you don't know the tricks of the cops here... Inspite of all the stuff in your list they are gonna get you one way or another smile

So I'd vote for the "Smart Driving only" option!

Cheers!

Of course, radar detectors are not legal in Virginia.

Correct, RDs are illegal in

Correct, RDs are illegal in VA...enough said.

Yeah, NJ cops are tricky. NC cops are too. Instant on radar is a killer!!!!

I got my ticket for being stupid! I didn't flow my own rules and I got busted. The sad thing is that I didn't even know that I was speed the last time and was concentrating on my GPSr. I heard the RD go off, but ignored it because there were so many stores around.....that was my stupidity!

Wonder why?

Just thinking that it would be easy for them to add an option to a GPS where you could set a speed and an alarm would go off if you exceeded it. Would be handy on long distance rides on the freeway.

Fastest Speed

I did not do it - my sister-in-law was the culprit. 90.7 MPH (passing another car on the freeway). Of course, she did not know about it. When my brother got in the car and checked, she heard about it.

Cruising speed

90.7 is cruising! I just drove from LA to Orange County cruising between 90 and 95. Next week I'll be in PA, from what I understand a zero tolerance state. I guess I can live with driving the speed limit for a week.

John, Nuvi 65LMT, Mac User

I turned my Nuvi on while flying

I got to 701 mph from LA to Chicago. We were behind schedule so the pilot cranked it up. We were in Kansas at the time. Kind of cool to try to find a restaurant and it's recalculating all the time due to speed. Alright...I'm a nerd and proud of it.

Didn't think of a plane

and here I was thinking 108 was up there. Next time I fly I'm takin' the Zumo. surprised)

fastest land Pick Up

I have a 2005 Dakota V8, and it appears that it at some point went 526Km/h, according to my C330......yes people it's the fastest truck in the world (and i haven't had a chance to take the C330 on a plane yet)

Fastest Land Pick Up

Hi

It may sometimes happen that the Satelite Reception is broken, maybe close to High Power Electricity Lines, driving underneath a bridge or paarking garage etc.

What then happens is, when the reception is regained, the GPS calculates the time from "Lost" to "Start" and it may give you these ridiculous readings. - Strange thing is, it will do that SOMETIMES, and not everytime! - According to some people who SAY they know, it all has to do with the positioning of the Sats at that particular moment!

There's 3rd party software available for TomTom's that has that feature - TRIPMASTER. What's more, it's free! smile
