Junk in my opinion ... no live update or even any real update. very dependent on other user actually taking the time to post up where they saw the traps.

friend has it. Dont know if he has actually driven the same routes it says police are on. But speed traps have to be reported I believe so theres a website you can go to that has them listed.


I am ready to meet my maker but is my maker ready for the ordeal of meeting me...

I use it when traffic is backed up... and rarely wrong. There's always someone out there, with and iPhone or such, making updates to something. Would explain the traffic...

Bingo.. used it one trip and havent since. Combine that with user error and having to stare at your phone while driving/riding and its just not a good execution of a great idea.
