Please Login to Remove!

There is an app called Trapster which is available via App World that is similar to a radar detector. It uses a database of user provided information to alert you if you are nearing a speed trap.

Trapster's your best bet. The BB itself isn't going to detect radar. The best solution would really be to use both Trapster and a good radar detector as Trapster isn't suitable for tracking all radar sources (such as constantly moving units).

As for one who has used trapster. Am definitely not a clear fan, it's slow, doesn't load and hardly picks anything up.

Best bet if to buy an actual radar detector.

I agree with you. Plus in my area it's shouting "Police usually hide here" every minute ad I've yet to see one cop.

It's just not reliable enough.

Agreed. Unless they make a radar detector that is bluetooth enabled. Haha
