Uniden Packs Radar Detector Inside MapTrax GPS for High-Tech Cop Spotting

Uniden hasn't been long in the GPS game, but its experience in high-end radar detectors goes back years and years. So it's no surprise that, come CES, it will be the first company to introduce a MapTrax GPS navigator with radar detection built in. We don't know much about them yet, like how the radar detection might be represented on a map, or if detection could help mark speed traps on the screen, but damn if it's not a start. People who note the placement of portable GPS navigators have asked me for years about this—"Why can't it have a 'fuzz buster' so I can see where all the cops are?" Well Dad, guess what? You're gonna get your wish. [Uniden]

Damnit I've been saying someone should do this for years. This way it can show you on the map locations of speed cameras, red light cameras, etc and warn you ahead of time. That being said, it's just a step beyond the 9500i as mentioned above. I already own the 9500i and a TomTom 720, but it would be nice to have them both in one unit!
