Automatic Speed Based Volume Control of your Iphone

So I was doing some research and I found a new APP out for the iphone that lets you control the volume based on speed. I setup a separate profile for surfing and wakeboarding and so far it works awesome. Slow the boat down and the volume drops to a pre-set level, speed up above a certain speed and it raises up to a louder volume that you set. Very easy to use and only $.99. The speeds are pre-set so using the km instead of miles works a bit better because surf speeds are so close to 10mph and wake speeds are close to 20mph, so I set them to turn up at 10km and 20km instead. A decent use of a buck! The app is called Vol Adjuter (I think it's actually a spelling mistake). ONLY drawback is you have to use Bluetooth or the headphone jack, you can't use the outputs from an ipod cable. I added Bluetooth in my boat so this is perfect for us. Here is a link.

I'm assuming it uses its own GPS to figure out how fast you're going. ??

Nevermind. Read the description closer.

If you are looking to spend 180x as much, I found this product by accident. I really like the idea, but it's way too $$ for me to justify.

Agreed this is awesome if it works as you say!

fyi - if you search for apps from your phone it is called "Volume Adjuter" - they appear to have spelled Adjuster as Adjuter...

Thanks, will try it out this weekend. My stereo has some auto volume control as well, this one seems to be better... Kinda like the delta between perfect pass and zero off...

I totally read this wrong:

Automatic volume based speed control off an iphone.

Damned, I was thinking someone had cracked the secret to using their smart phone to do speed control.
