We have all heard in the news of the rise of car manufacturers lying to drivers about their car's performance, but what happens if you own an old car? Do you even have or use a car in London? If not then you might not care.

Anyway, come and find out how I used an Android phone, an embedded bluetooth sensor, Google Maps and a whole load of Google Cloud Services to figure out what was happening under the hood. Plus, for an extra bonus, we will go into detail of some the Easter Eggs and features that now available in Google Maps App as well as some other fun things you might not know about Google Maps. You'll never look at a Google map the same way again!
