Integration with Siri.
(PRO) Siri shortcuts for tracking and speed limits help to keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road! + give you more than 8 speed limits!
Starting from iOS 12, app donates Siri Shortcuts for starting and stopping GPS tracking and for speed limits:
To let the app donate shortcuts to Siri:
Start and stop a track > this will donate Siri a New Track and Stop Track shortcuts.
Apply speed limits by tapping on speed limit presets > this will donate a “Speed limit X” shortcut to Siri for every speed limit X preset that you tap.
To donate “NO LIMIT” suggestion to Siri, tap on “NO LIMIT” several time.
You might need to tap 2-3 times sometimes to let Siri add the shortcut suggestion.
Once Siri knows about the shortcuts that the app donates:
Use a built-in Shortcuts app on your iPhone to add Siri commands:
- Open Shortcuts app
- In the top-right corner, tap on a “+” button.
- Tap on “Add action”
- In the search field type in “speedometer”, all possible action that speedometer donated to Siri will be here:
- Tap on an action to add.
Now there is a quirk that I’m experiencing that you need to close the action screen now and then tap on a “…” button on the new added action to return back to the action editing. This adds a Siri command that you can use with your voice:
This it what you tell Siri in order to execute this command in the app. Without the extra close/open step above this voice command was not appearing to me - possibly a bug or an omission in iOS 15.
As you returned to action this, it also a good idea to tap on an execute button here:
Siri might ask you if you agree with allowing the app to run this action/command, confirm with “Allow” and now you are good to invoke this by voice at any time. Looks like this extra “Allow” step is not needed after you’ve added several actions/commands for the app.
This should be it, some extra steps are needed in iOS 15, but still looks like a straightforward process. At least we don’t need to record the command with our own voice command anymore.
In iOS 13 open a Shortcuts app, tap on a Gallery tab, scroll to “Shortcuts from Your apps” section, pick “See All” and you’ll find the app shortcuts to add here.
Now locate speedometer settings in the iPhone wide settings screen, #1 in the image above. Tap on a ‘+’ in the “Suggested shortcuts” section (#2) and assign your own voice command to these shortcuts. Selected shortcuts will move into section #3 and you’ll be able to command “Hey Siri” + voice command that you chose for each of the shortcuts.
PRO tip If you need more than 8 speed limits, just configure preset(s) with different values -> tap -> add new speed limit command from suggestions section to Your saved Siri commands. This gives you ability to create as many “voice speed limit presets” as you need! A great reason to love Siri even more!
