Trapster.com, which offers speed trap alert apps for most major mobile platforms, has been acquired by NAVTEQ, according to an Autoblog exclusive. The report states that a bidding war broke out, with five parties interested in acquiring Trapster; terms of the deal have not been disclosed. NAVTEQ itself is owned by Nokia.
Nine million users have downloaded Trapster apps, which translates into a lot of crowd-sourced data for NAVTEQ. The existing Trapster service will apparently remain intact, but I’m betting we’ll see it integrated into other NAVTEQ offerings in the future.
