The main point of interaction is the Dashboard screen, which displays your current heading and speed (both calculated using your phone's GPS antenna and compass).

The app pulls speed camera, red light camera, speed trap, and road hazard warnings from the Internet and notifies as you approach. With the iRadar device, detected radar warnings are also displayed, complete with the band identifier and signal strength.
