â€œThere is a police checkpoint up ahead, baby!â€ shouts the voice of Austin Powers. The free App â€œTrapsterâ€ turns any iPhone into a GPS police locater. Keep an eye on speed traps, red light cameraâ€™s, speed cameraâ€™s and police checkpoints, before they get more than an eye on you!
The must have application is available on the â€œTrapsterâ€ web site, http://www.trapster.com/iphone.php, or in the App store. Once an email is verified on their web site, the App is up and running.
Click on the App and set up a custom voice, like a â€œsultry femaleâ€ or â€œArnold,â€ to tell you when you get within .5 miles of a police car. You can customize the program to vibrate or make noise, you can check traffic in real time, or log a trip with the flick of a thumb.
Once the App is running, a GPS map shows any police, or camera activity as far as one wants to track. â€œTrapsterâ€ automatically determines where you are, and aside from satellite it depends on users to locate and report police with a thumb click on the iPhoneâ€™s screen. The police shown are color coded to display reliable sightings, with many reports confirming the sighting, semi-reliable, with a confirmation, and unverified reports.
See a cop, click the screen, and help numerous drivers avoid the unavoidable speed traps!
