GPS POI US, LLC and Radardroid Announce Red Light Camera Alert Android App with Google Navigation Compatibility


The Radardroid GPS POI US Extension is immediately available in the Android Market



DES MOINES, IA and MADRID, SPAIN, February 1, 2011 – GPS POI US, LLC and RADARDROID announce the immediate availability of Red Light and Speed Camera alert software, compatible with Google Navigation for Android smartphones, in the United States and Canada.

No longer do Android smartphone users have to choose between using Google Navigation or a separate traffic camera alert application.  With this new, innovative approach, customers can use the navigation application of their choice while Radardroid efficiently runs in the background.


GPS POI US, LLC Manager Jeff Carpenter explains “We’ve observed other traffic camera alert applications in the Android Market and believe they all have made the same mistake.  They have all put the focus on their application. We don’t think customers want to do that.  We think customers want to focus on Google Navigation or the navigation app of their choice.  They want the alert function to disappear but still alert them when it counts. We do not want to disrupt the navigation experience with a bloated application.  That is why we’ve partnered with Radardroid.  They’ve nailed the user experience with their great application.”


“We brought Radardroid to the worldwide marketplace with the ability to use freely available camera datasets. Unlike Europe, we quickly learned that the options for free datasets in the United States were very limited and of poor quality. That is why we are excited to bring the GPS POI US dataset to our United States and Canadian customers” says Felix Ventero, Radardroid Manager.


The industry leading traffic camera dataset from GPS POI US, LLC is made available to Radardroid customers as an add-on extension to the existing Radardroid application.


The Radardroid application is available in the Android Market in both free and Pro versions. Customers of both versions can purchase the data for a one-time charge. This one time charge includes future data updates.
