Top speed or exact speed

I would like to view the top speed of a trip or the exact speed at a certain mark of a trip.
This could help to fight a speeding ticket when the officer lies or exaggerates.

Thanks for the idea Jeremy! We do plan to expand on the data we provide our users in the future. This would certainly be useful information to provide in that situation.

Thanks for the feedback, John. I've shared it with the product team. You *can* check specific trips on the Web Dashboard and see how many minutes a driver was driving over 70MPH, as well as where on the route they were doing so. I recognize that's not exactly what you're asking for but it's at least one bit of additional data. 
Since you are able to get the speed information of the car, it is really simple to implement the max speed of any trip.

That would really be helpful and give a lot of parents a strong control and comfort over their kids behind the wheel.

Hi Mercedes,

We have already shared this idea with the product team and we plan on expanding the data we provide to our users, but I don't know if speed with be included, unfortunately, and I can't provide an ETA.

Out of curiosity, is adding speed tracking a technical problem or is it a liability issue? It seems like most of your customers want this feature, but your company has been reluctant to add it.

Hi Kelly,

It's not that we have been reluctant to add speed tracking, it's that we currently have limited technical resources, so we have to be very picky about what we are using those resources for. We are very well aware that this is a popular request, and as we have mentioned, it has been share with the Product Team. If there are any updates we will be sure to post them.
