Hi gizbug,

The idea is to provide info traffic where Google Maps doesn't. When you drive the application is collecting your speed and send it to my server which displays the measures on custom tiles my application is displaying over Google Maps.

You can also notify other users for accident or speed traps.

The application is also logging your trip so you can export it and share it with your friends.

There are a lot more options and the best way to understand what my app is offering more than Google Maps is to use it.

Please let me know if something is missing or not working.

No it's a different application. It also includes a service that alarms you in when approaching speedcams and accident when application has not the focus.

This service is also use for the collaborative info traffic.

Hi all,

For now a week, Google decided to not provide Traffic Info for Europe for third party application using Google Maps. This issue is very strange as genuine Google Maps application continue to provide this service. But, US continue to have Traffic Info service without any problem on third party applications.
This issue is not justified by Google anywhere and no date is provided to tell us when Traffic Info will be available if it will ! From my point of view, this issue is due to Navigation service Google is preparing for Europe. It has been written on the net that it has to renegotiate contract with other companies to provide the service.
In the meantime, I decided to prepare a version of Real Time Traffic that provides Info Traffic on top of the Map (don't ask me how it's a secret !).
This version will be beta but pushed anyway on the market in one or two days to allow users to keep on having Traffic Info in my app. Even if the display is not that nice, it will be available for phones having Android 1.6 and earlier versions.


For the ones who what to test this version before it is available in the Market, feel free to send me a mail to the address available on the market and I'll explain them how to get it.

Nice app. What does the little button in the middle on the main screen that turns blue do?

Edit: found out it keeps you centered on the map.

Hi,

Sorry, for the moment my app is not well documented in English but I'm working on it.

The button in the middle allows you to center the map on your location (Follow Me mode). The blue point in the middle tells you if the "Follow Me" mode is enabled or not.
When you touch the map, the "Follow Me" mode is automatically disabled to let you have a look far from your location and the blue point disappears to tell you are leaving the "Follow Me" mode.
The "Follow Me" mode is also disabled when you search for a location using the "Search" menu.

A very cool-looking app (downloaded just now on 16-March), but on startup it has placed me and my Droid Eris (Android 1.5) in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Google Maps correctly places me in Bethesda, MD.

All 3 checkboxes are checked in my Location Settings for "Use wireless networks", "Location Setting" and "Enable GPS Satellites"

Hi jae_63,

By Default, Google Maps locates you in Tulsa (Google developpement labs) if your location can not be found.

Can you tell me if the GPS icon is blinking or not? If it's not blinking, it means the GPS signal is good so press the round icon between the zoom in and zoom out icons to force the map to be centred on your location. After than you may not need to do it again.
If you are not driving with my app it's a normal behaviour even if I do agree it could be strange.

I'll try to fix this on the next releases. Thanks for your feedback.

Please give me feedback as I'm doing all my tests from France and it's good to know how other countries are using my app.

Feel free to make any comment on bugs or anything going wrong with it

The GPS icon was blinking, but pressing on the round icon did the trick. I thought that I had tried this previously (I have subsequently uninstalled and reinstalled your app).

Thanks for the quick help!

This app has no link with trapster as trapster has no crowdsourcing on traffic info and I didn't developped Trapster.

Anyway if something is missing on my app, feel free to leave any comment.

Duh. That is a way of saying, there is already a WIDELY accepted app across multiple platforms that does mostly what this does called Trapster.

No it's a polite way to say "This tread is not about Trapster" and Trapster does not provide the following services:

- No registration required (everything is anonymous)
- Crowdsourced Traffic Info (tell the other user how traffic conditions were when you drove somewhere)
- Instant speed
- Average speed
- Logged users arround you
- Trip management
- Export and share your trips by mail, Google Earth and Google maps
- Nigth/Day mode
- Biker mode
- etc...

I confess I haven't tried this app yet.

I have tried Trapster and it's annoying. It sends me an email every day saying there are updated traffic cams and speed traps - why can't it just send an update direct to my phone so i don't have to sync it to update it?

As for traffic, I just use Google which also does navigation - why add another program? just add any other features as another layer to Google that can be toggled on and off, like Latitude

Hi TambourineMan,

The idea of my app is to have everything in one app as opening several apps uses a lot of memory.

The "plus" of my app is the Traffic Info comming from users. Indeed, while driving with my app you send your position and speed to my server so I can create my own Traffic Info layers to places where Google hasn't any Traffic Info (very usefull when main street are very busy).

Off course I hadded several features any other app doesn't include like trip sharing (look how I went back home to avoid bad traffic conditions), biker mode (they need large display) and so on ...

Why does the app need permission to directly call phone numbers?

My app use this permission to be able to call 911 when you tick the option "make emergency call" while notifying an accident.

I have now tried this app.

I hadn't tried it before because I thought it only pulled in traffic information from other users and and even though I am in a densely populated region (Boston) I could not imagine that there would be enough users yet to get sufficient traffic info.

But it seemed to have full traffic info similar to what I get from Google of Live maps. Duh, I now see there is a setting to allow both Google traffic and collaborative info.

What does the "50" button do?

When it says "Eco" what does that mean? And why does the color change form green to yellow to red?

Is there any way to change it to show mph, rather than Km/H?
