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.

Thanks, but I want a speed

Thanks, but I want a speed alert no matter where I am at. It seems that they only alert if you are near a POI, which I already can and know how to do.

You need a TomTom...

...asianfire, that's what you need! smile

Then download and install TRIPMASTER - it'll alert you at ANY speed, anytime, anywhere! wink

Clocked it, but my wife freaked out...

I clocked mine at 109 mph on the way back from PA on I78, but my wife freaked out and zeroed the data (reset the unit)...
She says it is evidence smile

Frankly I did not even feel the speed... But then that's what they say about bimmers... and in my defence I was following smile, not leading.

trick GPS into giving u exxagerated maxspeed

lenny7 wrote:

My Legend Cx came out of the box with 1492mph on the odometer for max speed. I haven't reset it yet.

I used to fiddle around with my GPS. It's a Garmin iQue M5 (PDA + GPS) where I can turn the GPS off by keeping the antenna close and only turn it on when needed (by flipping the antenna open).

I found out that when antenna was closed, I changed the unit's time (faster or slower), then drove to a different location (a different city/town) and flipped the antenna back on.

Upon acquiring GPS signals, the unit found out that:
1) I have moved my location since it was last on (eg. 50 mils)
2) It also fixed the date/time that I fiddled with and corrected that back to the "actual" time given by GPSs.

From that, it some how got confused that I traveled a looooong distance in a very short time and gave me a couple thousand mph (I don't remember the number since I've resetted the maxspeed).

If anyone tried this and worked, can you let me know? Just curious.

That makes alot of sense and could explain some of the speeds acquired. I travel for business and quite often when I'm traveling to the airport in another city, I'll just turn it off. The next time I turn it on is usually at home. When it syncs up to the satellite, it thinks that you traveled that far in a couple of hours and calculates it as such....or maybe I'm just to tired right now to logically explain this.

Ponder this...

Studies have shown that the more time you spend on the road the more likely you are to get into an accident. Common sense tells you the faster you drive, the less time you spend on the road. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to deduce that the faster you drive, the fewer accidents you will have.

I have you beat!! 136 on Georgia 400 even shot the booth at this speed. BTW that as in a Lincoln Mark VIII

I'd love to test...

You guys have to tell me where can I get to this kind of driving without 6-7 cruisers right behind me... I would love to test the limit of my bimmer... smile

I like the way you think! Wonder if I could talk my way out of a ticket with that excuse.

I doubt it, but you could

I doubt it, but you could try. Hand over your GPS to the officer and show him/her that your average speed was low, and your top speed proves that you don't deserve the ticket!

Good idea

Thats a great idea but knowing a few cops in my area i think it would rarely work. mostly just cause of their attitude but im with you though i wish it could work everytime. not that i get ticket often but just incase.

Hilarious reasoning

Max speed over 1,000 MPH

Not sure what caused this reading, but I've got one over 1,000 MPH. I know the plane I was in wasn't going that fast. I'll snap a photo and post when I get a chance.

Speed

Some times speeds not right

I find that sometimes speeds are not correct. I would believe it has something to do with reading jumps or so. I once got a top speed of 82 mph in my work Freightliner truck when it is capped at 65 mph and chokes itself as soon as you go 1 mph over so...........

Red Light Warning

Did you get the tag number of the plane that blew by the red light camera sir? look like he was going 432mph. That is too funny

It's down right dangerous to hold lose object while on roller coaster doing several G's. The lose object can fly off and hurt other bystanders.

One car will last you a lifetime

. . . if you drive fast enough.

it was on a up and down

it was on a up and down roller coaster it was not going in circles are making sharp turns.Besides i would not want to hurt my gps with someones head?

Hey Diving Cop, You are right. I believe most of the people in this forum are law abiding citiens. However I have no doubt that even you sometimes have the desire to push the gas little bit more and feel the speed... I bet everybody has felt the rush!

darn

I was looking forward to get a speed recording on my trip to Amsterdam this pass week but gosh! I forgot to pack my nuvi. the plane posted about 600mph though... maybe next time.

Max speed

I know this is old, but we just got back from Dominican Republic, air speed 912Km (567mph), old land speed at home 177Km (110mph).
I tried to plot a route from the D/R to home, (it actually has some of the roads for the D/R) it had a calculation error, I guess G-man can't swim...

It will definitely work.

Here is a list of airlines which approve/disapprove of the use of GPS receivers during cruise. Remember to always follow all instructions by any crew member. Those always supersede anything else.

Autobahn

Before I had a GPS, I was making 140 MPH in a 7 Series and being passed by a Ferrari or two. Guess I will have to go back and try again.

Cheers

There is one that would meet the challenge head on

Miss POI, there is always one that would meet the challenge head on. Not me though, Fastest I did was around 90, won't even jiggle the needle of record-meter, no need to brag.

Taking GPS on Commercial Airplane ?

Are GPS units allowed to be turned on during a commercial airline flight? Just wondering given the strict TSA rules.

Depends on the airline

Whell, I wouldent comper air speed to ground, and I hate to brag. but my top speed in a car according to my streetpilot 7200 was 187mph at 04:00 on us 75.
there is a picture to prove it. myspace.com/shlom511

No offense, but I'm not sure that's something I would brag about. You find that we try to stay on the legal side of things around here.

Max Speed....lost

I had my 147 (land) storred and my unit reset. sad

I peaked at that speed due to an aerodynamic limitation on the A2 between Hannover and Berlin. Two complete stops en route and I still averaged 103 for the trip. The whole time I'm thinking "they'd shoot me if I did this at home".

Speed

Speed doesn't kill, stopping very quickly kills. If speed killed there wouldn't be a single living race car driver.

My max speed is 143 -- and my last wreck was in 1979. I've owned two Mustang GTs (a 1989 and now a 2006). Both of them have 140 mph speedos and I've pegged them both. I-10 in the Chihuahua Desert (between Sierra Blanca and Van Horn) is a great place to test your top end!

999mph

(Supposedly) new out of the box, mine read 999mph. It must have had quite a ride to Best Buy. Reset it, and it hasn't seen over 85mph since sad

Motorcycle

OK, so fastest true land sped recorded was 208mph on a hayabusa, but a week later I had one 255 and was in a Ford Focus ( Commuter car), no way the focus got faster the then hayabusa.

All land speed here though, speedometer runs out at 190, but I past that, Friend bike he did work to, wanted me to see how fast I could get it, so had GPS on and reset to get the best I could for accuracy.

"Fastest Max Speed"

I decided to check my max speed yesterday (25JUL) and found that it recorded 244 MPH. What makes this interesting is that I did not take it on an airplane (the StreetPilot 2720 does not have a battery source) and I know I did not drive my Mustang at 244 MPH. also, I understand errors with GPS systems, because I work with them. I just wanted to share this; maybe I'm not the only one "setting land speed GPS records". Furthermore and not related, I love my 2720 even though it inflates my ego by 244MPH:)

126 MPH

On a recent cruise in the 2005 Z06, I wonder what 5th and 6th gears can do?!?

GTP

Mine changed today

from 267 MPH to 1893 MPH. The only thing I can figure is that today I was returning from Shreveport to Dallas and I kept losing satellite reception every few minutes. It would come back on and then lose it again. This happened for about 2 hours.

Not doing anything worth a darn.

I bet that would do it, the

I bet that would do it, the GPSr thinks that it took you seconds, not minutes or hours to move from one stop to another.

Speed Kills?

I think the impact is what kills! My top speed was 186 mph on a GSXR Race prepped 190 hp motorcycle - legally on a closed race track on the half mile strait. Then kick the tranny down 4 gears for a 30mph hairpin turn at the end. Talk about abrupt changes in speed. Then go around for another pass. I did not have a lap timer at the time so I had my Zumo mounted instead.

The best part was the State Police sent a squad of motorcycle troopers to come ride with us and give us riding tips, it was fun racing with those guys.

Wait till you hear this one ! Top Airline speed recorded !

On a nasty flight from Tampa, Florida to Buffalo, NY this spring, With a lot of sudden ups and downs my Nuvi 360 recorded a top speed of 666 mph !!!
The unit seemed accurate and always knew where we were. But this is no bull, I can send you a jpeg of it if you like. (kinda freaky !) No wonder I got scared on the flight............
