TomTom iPhone App launched for SA (unofficially)

Uncategorized
Well, according to a recent post on the MyBroadBand forum the TomTom turn-by-turn GPS iPhone application has been "unofficially" launched for the South African market! It is however apparently NOT available through the Apple AppStore, so you are going to have to come up with more constructive ways at downloading it. It's 147.24 MB in size, and works PERFECTLY !!!!! Grab it while it is still available! There is mention that you will need a jailbroken iPhone 3G or 3G[S] to install it however, so for those of you "legit" Vodacom users, you have a while to wait still!

Trapster – Speed Trap Sharing

Trapster – Speed Trap Sharing

iPhone, Technology
What is Trapster? Simply put, Trapster is an application for getting speed trap alerts on your Blackberry, iPhone, Nokia, Android, Garmin, or TomTom device. How does Trapster work? When you see a trap, report it by pressing a button on your phone, or calling a toll free number. Other user's phones will alert them as they approach the trap. Trapster learns the credibility of traps based on how many users agree. It also learns the credibility of each user, over time. So how does it work? Our goal is to make it so simple that you don't need to know. But in case you are interested, it combines technologies such as GPS and wireless location, voice transcription, geocoding, reverse geocoding, and SMS, with a central database server.
