Systems, methods, and computer-readable media for providing feedback to a driver are provided herein. Vehicle speed or acceleration data can be received for a location on a route. A current acceleration value for the location is derived using the received vehicle speed or acceleration data. A preferred acceleration value for the location is determined based on a preferred speed or acceleration profile that is specific to the route. An indication of a correspondence between the preferred acceleration value for the location and the current acceleration value for the location is then provided. The indication can be, for example, a graphic comparing the preferred and current acceleration values. Based on the indication, a driver can adjust acceleration to conform to the preferred acceleration value.
