Alert or a notification when the car travels faster than speed limit posted on the road. Or when the car exceeds high speed limit set point.

Thanks for suggesting this, Wojciech. I agree it would be a super handy feature to have in the Automatic Pro!

This is an excellent idea. Could this be exposed via IFTTT quicker than adding it to the App?

I'd like a log of everytime the car exceeds a certain speed and the max speed that was achieved. So IFTTT would enable me to log it to a google spreadsheet.

In IFTTT for each trip, I can get the number of seconds over a certain speed: Duration over 70, Duration over 75, Duration over 80.

Ah, got it. So it's for retroactive inspection rather than real-time speeding ticket avoidance. :) 

You can still see the number of minutes spent driving over 70MPH for each trip in the Web Dashboard

I'm interested in setting threshold for my kids. I would like a notification when they exceed a certain speed. Ideally it would have an accelerometer and be able to alert on turning and braking hard. Ifttt would be acceptable to me as well. A few second delay is no big deal plus i can do more automation with an event that way.

Hi Jason, while we don't have an IFTTT trigger for max speed in our Pro IFTTT channel, this data is exposed via the API so you may be able to build a custom alert if you're so inclined. Here's a relevant page in our Developer site. Not to say this won't ever be built out in the app and/or our Pro IFTTT channel but I can't say when that would be if it were to happen, so in the meantime... :)

So, how can we get access to this alert?  It looks like in the link you provided that its possible.  Im no techie, so i need it plain and simple if possible :-)

I too would like to see a speed notification once a certain speed limit is exceeded.

Hi Jay,

Unfortunately that is not an available feature with Automatic Pro. As Amy mentioned previously, you would have to build a custom alert via our API, but I can't provide instructions on how to do that.
