The Vlingo has a convenient interface and is very easy to use.
The trapster is an intelligent map-based app that sends you alerts when you’ve exceeded the speed limit. It also notifies about accidents on the road, traffic jams, red-light cameras and other “traps”. This app comes in 6 different languages, it’s voice based and has 9 voice themes.
