A while back, I was using this application called Trapster and didn’t have much luck with it as it was a bit buggy, then in beta version. Now that trapster is out of beta and has gone live, it seems to work a lot better on my 8310. If you never heard of Trapster before, it’s a simple and easy to use application that alerts you on your Blackberry about speed traps or spots where you might get hit with a speeding ticket which is not only a good idea but usually will persuade users to be more careful and slow down a bit.
The application works with the help of users: they report speed traps to the Trapster database using a Blackberry with GPS and the location of a speed trap, and it is instantly updated so if someone else using Trapster passes by the same location, they are alerted before they get caught speeding.
Trapter is available for the Blackberry and other smart phones. You do have to create an account, but the service is free for all who sign up. Then you can also contribute reporting speed traps, speed camera locations etc.
Trapster for the Blackberry is available at http://www.trapster.com/blackberry.php
As a quick note, Trapster does state that it might not work on Verizon GPS enabled devices as it does on most GSM devices.
