✱✱NOTE: Samsung Galaxy Spica and Galaxy Portal models are now supported with the alternative GPS configuration in the settings menu ✱✱

CamerAlert is a self-contained Speed and Red Light Camera warning system using data from the renowned PocketGPSWorld.com Speed Camera Database. It provides both audible and visual warnings as you approach a camera. Uniquely, when you are in a section of SPECs (Average Speed) cameras, CamerAlert displays your average speed between each camera in the zone. CamerAlert also utilises directional information to reduce the number of "False Alerts", you are only warned for cameras that monitor your direction of travel.

CamerAlert works in two different modes: Map and List. In Map mode the main display is a map with the cameras positioned on it. This can be shown either as "North Up" or "Course Up". The list mode simply shows a list of all the cameras in the area, highlighting the ones that you are approaching.

COMPATIBILITY: CamerAlert requires an Android GPS capable device. It will not function on a device without a GPS connection as it requires a GPS receiver to accurately determine your position. The moving map requires a data connection so users without data capabilities will have to run the app in list mode unless they have data access via a MiFi or similar external data device. CamerAlert is compatible with all Android devices with OS of 1.5 or above.

IMPORTANT: CamerAlert comes preinstalled with a demo Speed Camera Database only. To ensure you have the latest camera data we offer a Latest Database Guarantee which allows you one download of the latest updates after product registration at no extra cost. Please ensure you make use of this offer to download the very latest live data.

PocketGPSWorld subscribers can use their annual membership to keep the camera data up to date by linking their member details in the app. If you are not an existing subscriber you can subscribe in the app to ensure access the our regular updates. A subscription can be used on other GPS devices as well as the Android (maximum of three devices, one of which may be an Android or iPhone SmartPhone). An annual subscription costs £19.99.

Another feature, unique to this app, is that the latest data can be downloaded over the air at any time to ensure you have the latest speed camera information to remain safe.

If you see a camera that is not in the database then you can report it using CamerAlert. This feature can also be used to change information about a camera already in the database i.e. changing speed or direction information. You must register the App to submit cameras.

User reviews of CamerAlert
I've been using this app' since my first Smartphone some years ago and I was using the camera database for years before that on my satnav'. This was one of only 3 apps' that I'd paid for and is used daily without incident. I did a hard reset and re-installed my OS last week and this caused some problems with re-linking my phone with my subscription. The problem (Android OS bug) was explained to me in simple, understandable terms via the customer support team who were both quick and efficient. Customer support also rectified the issues by resetting my account so all is back as it was. The only problem I have with the app' is there's no "night mode" for the droid version. I've overcome this by showing map "near camera". I'm sure this is something the dev' team is working on, so until then I'll make do with my current set up. Though I was lucky enough to gain " lifetime membership" a couple of years ago, I still think the yearly subscription of £19:99 is worth every penny. I would rather spend that small amount than pay a £60 fixed penalty + points. So for those who think the fee is too expensive, think about what you'll save even if it helps you just ONCE.(",) SGS-v1.3.5.548

Stopped working Used to work fine, not now. When you open TomTom with it the only way of closing Tom Tom it is by uninstalling cameralert then having to reinstall it. Will not work in the background

Somewhat broken since kitkat 4.4.2 & Most Expensive App Ever. Archaic outdated user interface. Needs updating. The real cost of this app is actually £19.99 + = £20.58 as the only useful way to use this app is to buy the accompanying £19.99 database - and then you only get updates for... no, not a lifetime subscription... A YEAR!

Rather good This app is rather good, with sensible warnings and a clear display. The updates seem to be quite timely. The only real issue is the annoying warning about the database being out of date. I just want it to quietly update automatically.

Great I have lifetime subscription This is a great app if you have a subscription to the camera database. I am lucky enough to have lifetime one. Even paying £20 a year is a small price to pay for up to date worry free driving. Get it! It is the best database available.
