Affordable, Accurate, Reliable
These three little-ish words; affordable, accurate, and reliable describe our development goals with Taximeter. We wanted to bring a cost-effective GPS based software meter to unregulated markets throughout the world. Taximeter was first released on Android™ Eclair back in 2010 and since then has been regularly updated with additional features suggested by its users. The OBD-II interface places its accuracy on a par with that of any hardware meter utilising CAN bus as the source of its vehicle speed sensor pulse. We are well aware that thousands of drivers rely on Taximeter on a daily basis and they can rest assured that here at Planet Coops, we have their best interests at heart.
Imagine some of the savings you could make by switching to a software meter...
Reduced installation costs
Use a single device as a phone, MDT, meter, POS terminal
Adopt a BYOT (Bring Your Own Taximeter) policy for new drivers
Application Programming Interface (API) for integration with third party dispatch systems
Mobile receipt printing (Planet Coops’ POS Print application and a compatible Bluetooth mobile printer are required)
Data logging – log GPS position, meter state and fares to the cloud (incurs a small monthly charge to cover our server costs). A basic online tracking facility using MapQuest™/Leaflet is also available should you choose this option.
Supports Samsung Multi Window™, LG Dual Window™ & Android™ Multi-Window
Best taxi meter app! It is the best taxi app out there. I have tried all of them in the market and this is the best. Keeps a log of my trips. Works together with PayPal. I can email receipts to customers from the app. And I can even print out receipts with the POS Printer app and a bluetooth wireless thermal printer. The developer responds fast to any question. Thanks Planet Coops!!
AAAAAMAAZING!! EXCELLENT! BEST METER APP! I downloaded this app. I was a little skeptical at first because all the other meter apps on Google play were lousy. But not this one! TAXIMETER from Planet Coops is the best. The settings and features work great and are very customizable. I have been a taxi driver for 10+ years in the USA and this app is better than a regular meter! I first used it with the gps data only and tested it to make sure it works correctly (tested in my taxi) then I bought BT OBD2 and it’s even better than I thought! GET THIS!
Great app, well designed and clever features which are always updated… 5*****!
Excellent App Extremely well thought-out. Works as well and as accurately as a regular taxi meter. Had one e-mail question for the designers in the UK (not a gripe, but a question about whether it will run on a Wi-Fi only tablet). They responded immediately (and by the way, it will run on such a platform). Well worth the money!
Great app I love this app. It’s really better than the actual meter. All my customers love it and is super accurate. Thanks a lot for hearing and fixing our concerns. Great app and support!!
Excellent app. I install taxi meters and this is an excellent app. We use it in all our airport sedans and other unmetered cars. This is the best app I have ever purchased. Easy to set and use. The features are great.
Works great lots of tools and controls. Best app ever.
Brilliant app Contacted developer one day, he added the requested fare spreadsheet next day, can’t ask for better service than that for an already great app.
GS3 Great app. Works perfect.
I am a taxi driver, have been driving for 15 years and this is the greatest app. I highly recommend this app.
Very good, and proved very accurate when a comparison was carried with an official Manchester UK calibrated taxi meter.

This app is great! I have been using it in my car, on several devices, and in other cars in our company’s fleet for 2-3 years! It is simple to use, and accurate! Not only that, but if you have a question/problem, the support team responds very quickly! Don’t waste your time with free apps that are garbage!
It works very good, it is accurate – used it with with a real taxi meter.
I am a small fleet manager who heard good things about Planet Coops and their Taximeter app at a few conventions. I was a huge fan at first install. I found out that their app did not support Dual Window on my LG G Pad F 8.0 tablets that some cars on my fleet were using. Within 24 hours their development team sent me a beta version of their app to test. It worked perfectly!
This app is everything it says, programs like a real meter and is dead on accurate. 5 star app for sure.
Been using this app in my cab for a few days now, testing against the vehicle odometer and it’s spot on. Going to work on getting the boss to standardize out across all drivers.
