    I heard by way of rumor that there is some sort of application on my phone that I can detect all the cops in my driving area. Does anyone know if it really exists?

    I believe they were talking about Trapster. Free in market!

    Yea I have heard of that also!
    its called setting your cruise control to what ever the sign says!:icon_ banana:
    lol jm
    But iv never heard of it since the droid doesnt have the right hardware to detect radar such as IR like some Cop Radars detect...But you asked where the "cops" where. Unless they all have Gps which they might theres no way to access that info from where ever its sent to (911 Answering place/Police Station).

    Ill be the first one to say id pay up to $50 if such a thing where made.

    Now it doesn't detect ALL cops. Just those people have seen and kindly uploaded their location from within the app. Also has checkpoints, common police hideouts and police cams.

    First off, there's no such thing as a "cop detector". Trapster is probably the closest to what you're looking for but it's still no substitute for proper countermeasures.

    IR is not radar. Totally different wavelengths.

    Oh Nice, thanks. Yeah I figured it wasn't as good as it seems but I thought it was worth a shot.

    Trapster sucks.. (to me anyways).. most of the posts on their are days/weeks old. An app like this seems impossible because 90% of the cops in my area use laser. Which has effectively made my $400 Valentine 1 a fancy paperweight...

    The cop buddy doesn't matter. I'm not doubting its existence. The IR device is a speed enforcement device but it's not radar if it uses IR. Radar doesn't mean "any speed measuring device". It refers to a specific range of the electromagnetic spectrum (which IR does not fall into).

    If it's IR laser there are countermeasures for that as well.

    There are plenty of threads in this very forum with all sorts of suggestions. Are you looking for any particular types of apps?

    You can pick up scatter with the V1 but it's not worth counting on. The V1 is still very useful for intercity and interstate travel.

    If your that worried - dont speed. Obviously, it is not worth it. Cops move. Radar equip vehicles - move. They can get you coming and going. Radar can be in "Stand by" mode until the speeder is spotted. Then, with a flick of a switch, it is on, and you, regardless of what brand of detector you have, are caught.

    The instant on or PoP is not admisable in court because there is a warmup time required.
