The Google Maps speed limit function shows users the speed limit of the road they are traveling on and warns them if they are exceeding it. Google Maps also shows users how fast they are driving, but recommends that users check their speed on their car’s speedometer. The speedometer in the app is for informational use only and users should not rely solely on it. The speed limit is displayed in the lower left corner of the map during navigation, just above the bar showing the estimated time of arrival (ETA) along with other information.
Google Maps first made an on-screen speedometer available to users in 2019. Before that, it was available to some users in Asia, Europe, South America, the UK, and the US. Gradually, the on-screen speedometer was made available to more users globally. Besides, Google also displays the speed limit of the area that the user is in. However, the speed limit function is currently not available in all regions. If speed limiting is available in your area, here’s how you can enable it. Google advises users not to depend on the speedometer on the screen.
