Sadly the only difference switching to Always has made for me is the disapearance of the blue bar advising 'CamerAlert is Actively Using Your Location'. Driving into London, alerts stopped 15 mins int ...

I will try the Always option, and see if it improves. Will report back either way. As thereís so few following this, maybe Iím just unlucky or the 6s phone has an issue.

That's interesting. Does CA apear in you Background Apps Refresh list in General Settings? For me CA does work for a while using Bluetooth speaker in one car, Bluetooth entertainment system in another ...

For me, it would great if it could just return to the format before BAR was dropped. It worked brilliantly up to then.

I would happily make more donations if we could get any response from pgpsw he ...

Trouble is, you won't find a better database. If there was another app to which one could load the pgpsw data, that would be magic. Would be grateful if you could report back on any progress.

Still unreliable, sadly. Not seen a response from tech team although Darren did pass message on. Itís a shame. Still using separate SatNav for CamerAlert. It is very frustrating thst we cannot get any ...

It certainly used to be in the BAR list. There must have been a reason.

Are you certain about this? If so, it explains everything.
I have emailed Darren who has passed it on, but so far no news. It is disappointing that there's no response: just a 'We're looking at ...

Thanks, Steve. It may well be coincidence that my problems with CamerAlert running in background have started since it disappeared from the BAR list. I only feel safe now running a Garmin with the dat ...

Don't know about Car Play, but we are just buying a new Ford with latest version of Sync 3 and hoping to make Waze work on that. Will report back once we have tried it.

Thanks again. I think I'll try GMaps instead of Waze and see how that goes. It sounds like everything is else is similar to your set-up in our cars. Would be grateful if you would let me know if you d ...

Thanks for that. One last thing: do your CamerAlert background alerts come direct from your phone speaker or via a Bluetooth speaker? I ask because my experience is that CA running in background seems ...

My experience is that it works for a while, then stops alerting until I bring it into the foreground. Could you report back after an extended run? Would be grateful.

Also, could you check ...

Yes, it works fine in the foreground, but not when running a Satnav app such as Waze.

I am more concerned with the serious problem that CamerAlert is no longer sounding warnings when running in the background on iPhones. Would be interested to hear from anyone suffering the same proble ...
