isnt trapster just redlight cameras, speed cameras, etc?

i already have an escort 9500ix that has gps with all that shit programmed in so i wouldnt need that
 
I'm sorry, I misunderstood what you were looking for. Trapster operates based on other users' reporting. People mark known locations that police use as speed traps. As for an actual active police scanner, I'm not aware of such an app existing.

There is one called "police stream" , I have used it a feww times and it seems ok.

I did get to listen to the last Shuttle launch via the app, that was cool.

They update every so often with more channels.

i use droid live lite (app) and steam the scanner feed from RadioReference.com - Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference

What type of Police Scanner are you looking for, a radar detector or a Police/Fire/EMS radio scanner? I can't help you with the former, but for the latter I use PoliceStream v1.2 Application for Android | Communication

this is exactly what im looking for..

thanks very much guys.

Im getting my droid wednesday so i cant try it out now.. for the droid live lite app how do you go about adding streams? what number does it need?

these are the ones im concerned with:

868.98750 WNNM880 M 156.7 PL
Police 800 MHz Car-to-Car FM Law Talk

471.13750 WPNU737 RM 023 DPL
Farmingville Fire District FM Fire-Tac
470.56250 WPKH215 RM 023 DPL
Farmingville Fire District FM Fire-Talk
470.96250 WPKH215 RM 023 DPL
Farmingville Fire District FM Fire-Tac
470.76250 WPNU737 RM 023 DPL

I have droid live lite working and found my local police scanner on the site refercned here. But I havnt figured out how to get the stream from the radioreference site into droid live lite. Can you give more details please?

Edit: I figured it out. I went to the mobile section of the radioreference website and got a link to the mp3 stream i wanted. It works pretty well.

goto the mobile version of the website:

RR Mobile

Navigate to the country/county you want to monitor and you will eventually get to an MP3 link. Paste that link into a favorite as a url in your radio live ap.

I had started a thread on RR about Android Scanner apps:

Scanner Streaming Apps for Android (Droid) - The RadioReference.com Forums

Much the same information you see here already, but I did add some screen shots of the PoliceStream app

Nice! thanks for the info Jef..

if anybody has the policescanner app installed would they mind checking out what frequencies they get for suffolk county, new york? would be nice to know ahead of time.

im looking for suffolk county police, farmingville fire department and possibly suffolk county sheriff if its there.

It doesn't tell me the Frequencies, but I see:

4 for Suffolk County

Suffolk County Fire Department - NY
Suffolk County Police,Fire -NY

Suffolk County Fire and EMS
Suffolk County Police & Constabulary

I added a Map view which shows the stream locations from the app.

thank you so much Jef, exactly what I was looking for. I'd assume the Suffolk County Police would consist of all the county police and im praying that the constabulary might be the sheriffs. looks like im going to have to listen to my towns fire department through droid live or another streaming program.

big + rep to you Jef! thanks

hi, i use police stream like every day, listen to fdny so i can hear what i missed wile on vacation, just wondering what channel you listened to the shuttle launch on? me and my kids would love this

and for the member from farmingville, i live in sound beach and listen to the suffolk feeds alot also. this is a great app. i just wish they broke down what freq were being covered, but at least with the map option, you can select the feed closest to you.

This is fine if you just want some uncontrollable Audio streams, but I have a RadioShack PRO-106 which coupled with Don Starr's WIN500 application provides not only audio streaming audio from my scanner, but also remote control of my scanner. Don Starr only provides a Windows Mobile client at this time so there is no Android app that can do what his Windows Mobile app does.

So, is there an Android programmer that has the RadioShack PRO-106 or PRO-197, or the GRE PSR500 or PSR600 that would be willing to contact Don Starr to hopefully get his Windows Mobile Client source code and port it over to the Android platform?

Here's Don Starr's WIN500 Apps page; Win500: PSR-500, PSR-600, PRO-106, PRO-197 Scanner Software for Data Management, Monitoring, and Control
