Let me start by first saying I, we, do NOT condone speeding, but I have to acknowledge that most of us still speed from time to time, especially when you’re driving a twin-turbo 3er.

Trapster.com is a website that I glanced at a few times and I saw some potential in it. Here is the description of Trapster, straight from the source:

“Trapster users share the location of police speed traps by a simply clicking their mobile phones. The system uses the phone’s GPS capabilities and the Internet to instantly alert other users as they approach the reported trap.”

With the new iPhone release, I knew it was just a matter of time until Trapster will be available for it, and more important, it’s FREE. For those of you that dislike the iPhone(yes, I know there are many of you out there), the Trapster mobile app is available  on navigation devices like Garmin, TomTom, and Dash Express and other cell phones, including Blackberry, Nokia s60 and n95, Windows Mobile, and other Java/J2ME devices.

I know this is a little off topic, but I thought I would share a little tip/trick with you, since I know that those M3s are flying daily on the highways. I haven’t tested the application myself yet, but I plan on doing that this weekend and post a follow up.

    Hi folks, Trapster.com here. One little note. Don’t zoom! We have a glitch if you try and use the iPhone app indoors (no GPS coverage) and sometimes if you mess with zoom. Only a small % of people are seeing it, we have been unable to reproduce it here, but it’s still a bug. It’s already fixed, but the issue is that it takes a few days for the updated version to show up on the App Store. We also had a glitch with the new BlackBerry app with v 4.5 BlackBerry (you would get a red screen) but that is fixed and posted now. Thanks for your patience and please let us know how you like it!
