Well, I'm very impressed. I got a chance to run this on a drive from GR to Lansing. I had a number of alerts that were 10 miles out. Incredible how nice it is to just run it in the background and when I get an alert, a notification pops up. One tap, and I'm back in the Highway Radar app and can see the cop on the map.
I would definitely recommend this app for anyone that needs that extra distance.
It does take some adjustment to get it set so every VVaze alert in a 10 mile radius isn't setting it off, but with the forward alerts set to 10 miles, side and back both set to 1 mile, I found the app a lifesaver.

I'm assuming this is for Android as I do not see an app by that name on iOS?

To get the app to give alerts you need to enter a server host name, which involves VVaze. Check out this thread for more information on alerts and the app's ongoing evolution. I've been using it since shortly after it came out and really like it. It's simple looking, but it does what it does very well so far.

I really like this app. Used it on a 800+ mile drive from AR to NC and it was useful, now in NC I use it every day on my commute on the way to work and home. It's dead on and has alerted me to cops on 64 during the 15 mile stretch I drive. So much easier to use than WAZE just zooming back and forth to work, plus it gives me a heads up that the Uniden *should* be going off shortly. Love the app.

Ok so if I understand correctly Highway Radar uses the Waze database but focuses more on Radar warnings unlike Waze?

I just installed Waze but would rather something a bit light weight.

It just pulls waze alerts in and allows you to customize the the alert distance and it shows them all on the screen with directional arrows. It also has the ability to alert you to aircraft if they use aircraft for speed enforcement. it's a nice app that keeps getting better and allows more adjustments over the basic waze.
