What does vehicle speed have to do with retrieving a users location???

It's not meant to retrieve a location from cratch, but to maintain a location when GPS is lost. If I'm travelling down the interstate and lose my gps, based on vehicle speed the program should now be able to estimate where I am rather than stopping at the last point where I had a signal.
