ok record so far 42.8mph, according to alpinereplay

i really think it has to do with the mountain you're riding groomed or not bumpy or lot of moguls etc. considering all these I can't see myself reaching to 50mph ,

Last run of the weekend at Holiday Valley in NY, I hit 45.4 MPH...if it was steeper or longer, I think I would have been ok going a little faster...but not much.

Mine is dead on too when in the car.

However, I think the accuracy might not be so good in the short term. If you drive a mile at 65mph I think the phones are ok (I tracked mine).

But at short bursts it's not so accurate. I don't think anything short of a radar gun is going to be accurate.

Me, my buddy, two iphone 5s, same application, roughly same top speed and I'm 15 mph higher than his.
