Adjustable Speed Alerts means no more fines

Nothing ruins your day like a speeding fine and so GOFAR has built in a handy adjustable speed alert into Ray that acts as a helpful reminder when you nudge over the limit.

No one likes speeding fines whether you're a new driver or if you just really rely on your car.  And if you drive for a living - as a courier, sales rep or Uber driver - then you absolutely can't afford to lose your license.  

There's good safety reasons for keeping to the speed limit - higher speeds make crashes more likely and more severe.  And Governments and police forces are taking action to improve road safety all the time (and issue tickets of course).

One of the team passed three police cars on a trip to his parents on a rolling motorway where it was quite easy to pick up speed on the downhills.  On telling our engineers they decided to quickly build a nice little feature that allows you to set a maximum speed threshold.  It's really handy if you drive on the highway a lot.

You adjust it in the app in Settings > Ray Settings > Speed Threshold.

Just swipe left or right to set whatever maximum speed threshold you want in the car and Ray will start "blushing" when that speed is exceeded (whether you're in the car or not).  It's that simple.

Do you have any ideas for Ray?
