Radardroid Lite User Guide

GPS speed camera warning application for Android devices. Radardroid will give a visual and audible warning when you approach any fixed or mobile speed camera in the application database. Radardroid uses GPS technology to detect your position and speed and searches the speedtrap database to find the closest speed cameras.

 

Requisites

In order for Radardroid to work, you need to enable GPS locations in your device. When the application starts, it checks if GPS locations are enabled and allows you to activate GPS locations if they are not already activated. Even if GPS is enabled in your device, you may not received GPS signals in you are inside a building or an area with poor GPS satellite coverage. If Radardroid doesn't received positions from the GPS satellites, it won't be able to alert you when you are close to a speed camera because radardroid won't know your location or speed. You can use GPStatus application to check if your device receives correct GPS signal.
