Handy little app


Like the fact that it connects to the radar detector and how it functions. Would be nice to have a night mode on the map viewer, Little bright using it in the dark. Haven’t really used the app much while driving, just really on the phone being connected to the radar detector for threat alerts in the area. Does not seem to use much data. When the app is running it consumes battery life since it does not screen save, but you can exit the app and it will stay running in the background to update gps, speed, etc. Be nice like I said to have the night mode maps though. Other than that I like the app.

GPS Info unreliable

Yahoo fantasy is better......

If you're using this app in conjunction with Cobra's BT enabled dashcam, don't expect accurate results. In fact, don't expect any reliable results at all. I received this unit as a xmas gift, the camera is decent but after dozens of attempts to get my GPS/speed information to sync with the video, it fails every time. The turn-by-turn directions feature in the app is poor as well, just use google maps or something else. I also hate that the app wants GPS enabled all the time (even when I'm not using the app) instead of having the option to use GPS only while using the app.
Maybe the focus is all on their radar detectors (I don't own one)?? Hopefully more development will be put in to it. I'll adjust my rating then.

Still works as of this writing!


I have notifications turned on, i'm still getting the Speed Trap notifications pushed thru whilst on the road. Lots of times when I go to add Live Police at a location someone else has beat me to it. Download it!

Only thing I'd wish is for a recent update for obvious reasons.
