Congrats... But Cellphones are not the best GPS to be using pick yourself up a garmin. Cellphones arent always accurate. Also I hope it didnt take you 6.2 miles and 13 mins to get 80mph.. Could easily be a spike..

Congrats, but as mentioned, iphone gps is NOT accurate for this use, get a real GPS like a Garmin.

When I downloaded the app, I thought it would not be to accurate and as I have the means to test it (I run a car dealership and we calibrate speedo's for emergency vehicles) I tested it with a calibrated vehicle. At 70mph it was reading 69.8mph over the vascar markers we use locally for reference. I am pleasantly surprised.
As for the 6.2 miles / 13 mins - I was just messing around and looking at the beach etc before nailing it!
Still going to get a Garmin and double test.
What it has made me realize is that in the UK we hardly ever have days flat enough to go that fast - Maybe 5 days a year if you are lucky on the south coast - and maybe,the money I spent on my ski could have gone on a holiday or two!!

BTW, what year, model of ski and what mods have you done.
You should consider putting all of this a signature.
Good job, be safe......

The app is "Max Speed" by On Core Software. In the Apple App store.
