Phantom Alert?

Has anyone heard of this? It's supose to be like a GPS that tells you where speed traps, road blocks, school zones, red light cameras and all that good stuff is. I just seen a commercial for it and figured I'd ask. I never heard of it before so not sure how new this is.

I know some of the radar detectors have been incorporating some things like this, but I haven't heard of this device. Got a website link?

Interesting. The app (for phones) or software (for GPS units) uses user contributed data to let you know about all these things. It's an interesting concept--using user generated data, which you get for free, and then charging all users for access to it.

All GPS units in South Korea do this. It will give you an audible tone alerting you to an upcoming speed camera till you slow to legal speeds. It will also show you where speed bumps are located.
