Sure, it’ll help with speed traps, and it’s not illegal in some states and countries like radar detectors. But TrapTap sets itself apart from the competition thanks to its extreme simplicity. Stick it on your dashboard and it connects to your phone and for GPS and internet, and knows the whereabouts of red light cameras, school zones, and what speed limits apply where in over 60 countries. And like Waze it relies on users to mark locations of radar traps, but instead of navigating an app to mark a trap all you need to do is double tap the unit (same applies to marking one clear). TrapTap lights up green when you’re speeding, blue when you’re approaching a radar trap, and red for red light cameras and school zones, acting as a timely reminder to potentially spare you a ticket, or worse.
