    That would require sensors that your droid simply doesn't have. Sorry 'bout that.

    Apps can do a lot but they don't replace hardware. Your smartphone can't pick up radar or laser. If you need a radar detector then get a good radar detector. If you need a laser jammer then get a good laser jammer. Make sure you know how to properly install and use them (do not install like the typical Cobra user). They're not "install and forget" solutions.

    No Android device (currently) can replace either of these.

    RadarActive has an interface for the iPhone and V1, supposedly with possible plans to release one for Android. However, you still have to have a radar detector.

    Cobra? Are you kidding? "Good" doesn't belong in the same sentence with them unless there's a "not" in there as well. They're at the bottom of the barrel and instill a false sense of confidence, which is worse than having no RD at all.

    If you're looking for a dash mount then consider the Valentine 1, Escort Redline, Escort 9500ix or other top-tier model. Performance really matters at highway speeds.

    As for Trapster, it's only as good as the data it's fed from its users.
