Trapster

Anyone tried this out? Looks pretty good albeit potentially a bit of a data and battery drain.

I've downloaded it but not used it yet.

I just installed it today and it is accurate. Spotted a mobile camera coming back from Altona. The application beeps to warn you of a trap within promitity of your location.

You will need to turn it on when driving for it to work!

The level of policing in Oz has become insufferable and turned it into a Nanny State. Not missing that. Do miss Germany ..

Thanks for the feedback guys - must turn it on going home tonight!

Dynolicous is cool. Try turning it on and swing your hand around. Funny - apparently my left arm has 120kw but my right only has 45!

Don't bring up Vodafone.. I have been waiting for my iPhone 3GS now for over 3 weeks & they still cannot tell me when I'll get it. Out of stock in their warehouse is what they told me again today!!

Optus told me there is a waiting list as Apple is deliberately limiting supply - beats me why.....you'd think Apple would flood the market. Saturate the market with punters on 24 month plans and that effectively locks out any other 3G phone manufacturer.

I'll wait til the hooha dies down.

Dunno - I've got an iPod classic which lives in the car. iPhone stays in my pocket when I'm on the road.

Started out wanting to use the iPhone for music in the car but the only time I listen to music on it is when I'm flying. I hook it up to my Bose QuietComfort 3's and I could be anywhere.

Aggie - probably a good idea... although I imagine that I'll keep some of the music on the HDD anyway. But I totally agree.... I have the same QuietComforts... they are amazing... help me sleep... and relax!

Does the 997 have a HDD?

Best thing on a long flight aren't they! I use them in preference to the airline supplied noise cancelling headphones. Makes long-haul economy almost bearable. But not quite!

Yes, it does have a 40Gb hard drive but I'm pretty sure it's only used for navigation. So far I haven't found any options to download music to it but I havent really looked that hard.

Aggie... totally. Hmmm... I hate long haul so anything that will make me feel that I'm remotely comfortable is a great thing!

Well you wouldn't believe it....I walked into an Optus store and they had a few 3Gs 32Gb ready to go - so I took two!

And what a plan!.......$89/month which includes the phone, unlimited calls, text and MMS up to $610/month to phones on ANY network, unlimited calls, text and MMS to phones on Optus up to $640/month. 3000minutes free calls per month to one nominated Optus number (the wife's) and to top it all - 1Gb internet content up/downloads per month! All within OZ of course - does not apply to overseas calls.

Ive now downloaded Dynolicious and aching to give it a go!

The only problem I've had so far is that when I connect the iPhone to my laptop it shows a blue error screen and causes the laptop to reboot. (Not the dreaded "blue screen of death")
