Default trolling speed app for smartphone

I just upgraded my phone to 4g smartphone, looking for a speedometer app for trolling speed, does anyone know of a good one that's a free download.
Crap this I posted in the wrong department, probably should have been in electronics.

Just look in utilities category on the app store. I have used Navionics on my iPhone. As good of an app that it is, it will never beat a good gps chartplotter or handheld for accuracy.

I think the navionics is around $10. For a free one just search the marketplace for GPS. You might have to try different ones until you find one you like. There are a bunch of them.

Default Waste of $10 IMO

I got the $10 navionics app (great lakes) when I had my 3G, when I up graded to 4G I didn't bother transferring. I never used it when I had it. Waste of 10 bucks if you ask me. Go with the free stuff first and see how you like it. It's what I should of done.

I did the market place free app thing, I had no idea there were so many free apps, just about anything I can dream up is there! The free speed-pro speedometer app don't want to download, it just says download in progress, it's been going all night, I tryed getting out of it and trying again but now it reads download in progress right from the start, I get frustrated easily, the touch screen is kinda aggrevating when I go to slide the page and push just a little too hard, (I guess) and open a file instead, I'm in a learning curve yet and looking for any advise I can get, my old 3g slider phone, I could fully operate 1 handed texting and all, this one seems like 1 handed operation is a tough to master, it's the touchpad keyboard I'm having trouble with, and seeing the screen without my readers on. Thanks alot for all your replys are helping me.

There's an app called chomp, that categorizes apps nicely. It makes finding the app to fit your needs much easier.

Yeah, there's an app for finding apps.
