About this app

Highway Radar is an application to help drivers be aware of road hazards, cameras, and speed traps. It collects traffic-related information from multiple sources and provides notices on potential risks on the road.

Crowd-sourced alerts: Highway Radar can connect to a sever aggregating crowd-sourced alerts and show them on the map. It also issues audible voice warnings and optionally a beeper to grab the attention. Currently, the application supports alerting on speed traps and road hazards reports.

Aircraft alerts: In some countries, aircraft traffic enforcement is in use. Highway Radar collects information about air traffic around though various ADS-B exchange sites (ADSBx, OpenSky). Then it matches every aircraft to multiple registration databases and alerts drivers only on those which can potentially do traffic enforcement.

Historical data analysis: Highway Radar aggregates data about past police and speed trap reports and estimates the risk of a given area being heavily patrolled. The app also features a heat map that shows places with especially frequent speed trap reports.

Speed and red-light cameras: Highway Radar can warn the driver when approaching a traffic camera. This feature is available in the USA and Canada only.

Extra features: Highway Radar can also show you traffic jams on nearby streets and a weather radar information around you.

NOTE: This application can use accessibility service to launch other application on service start, including activating split-screen mode or preloading the application. The accessibility service isn't used for anything else but launching other applications upon service start, and only if Highway Radar is configured to do so. No data is accessed, collected, or shared in any way though the accessibility service.

Awesome app!!! Came here from rdf and I'm so happy to see how quick the developer is to make changes and better the experience for everyone. It started off great and every update makes it better. No app can match this right now. With waze and the plane alerts you have an enormous database of alerts and unparalled alert distance. Waze is great but half the time it wont alert for me and when it does, its way too close. Highway Radar is super customizable and offers what no other app does.

I like it but what's annoying and distracting is beeping when the speed or red light cam is beeping from the other side of the street where I am not driving at I only want it to beep the side I am driving please find a way to fix that

At the moment it comes 2nd place in my preferred driver aid apps. I'm in Australia and by the looks its gaining popularity. Notifications are being made by users of the app. It doesn't recognize fixed speed cameras perhaps the developers can use the "Trinity 3.0"speedcamera database or something compatible with the southern hemisphere.. Also have an option for metric measurements. Anyhow I like it. And thank you for your work in getting this app up and running.. ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘
