- Real time speed trap alerts: get alerts for red light cameras, speed cameras, police radar/laser speed traps, mobile speed cameras, checkpoints, and road hazards.
- Audio alerts: as you approach a reported trap a spoken voice alert will play, and on-screen icons will animate, according to the type of trap (for example "Live Police!").
- Virtual Radar(TM): the dynamic alert area is based on your GPS location and narrows and elongates according to your speed and direction of travel.
- "Push" notification (iPhone only) for speed traps: automatic alerts sent even when not running Trapster.
- Customizable alerts: from the options menu, select setup to customize which alerts you want to receive, when you receive them (ie. .5 miles away), and how often you want to receive them. You can completely control the alerts experience for every trap type supported by Trapster.
