About this app

✱✱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.

Disclaimer: The use of a speed camera warning device may not be legal in all countries and territories. Users are reminded that it is their responsibility to check the legality of such a device before use.

Just discovered it also calculates your current average speed between cameras! I use it almost every time I drive, but normally have google maps on top and I only see the camera popups. Any chance of showing the speed on a popup while you're in an average speed trap? The thing I'd really like to see, though, is the ability to download the database automatically over wifi, instead of hearing "take care, you are not using the latest database" every week and having to start the download manually.

Best speed camera alert app ever, it gives you an early warning and it can be set. it's a must have app, This gives you freedom on road by not sticking your eyes on the speedo instead on the road. I am using a paid version already three updates. It does need UI improvements the team looks at user satisfaction. When compared to the ones with a heavy price tag on the market. This one is fantastic and works just fine. Fine tune the setting as per your requirement and route. You are a free man!!!.

I've been using this excellent speed camera database for years on Garmins and also on Android phones with this app. It is undoubtedly the most comprehensive database for the UK. The app does not work on Samsung phones running Android 10 with One UI version 2.0 or lower. Version 2.5 is OK. If you have this problem, then try using Speedtrap Alert as a wrapper for the Pocketgpsworld database. Full and clear instructions are on the developer's website.
