I have just purchased CoPilot Premium for my Samsung Galaxy S2 running Android 2.3.3.

I have installed the PGPSW speed cams as per the instructions and the cams do show on the map, however I don't get any kind of audible alert when approaching a camera.

Anyone any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Sorry, I don't know the Co-Pilot at all myself.

But looking back through some previous topics I found this one, which proves it's possible.
Unfortunately Darrens link to the blog only goes to their front page, so maybe Darren can remember which blog post it was, and whether it had any helpful instructions.

Do you have "warn when near POI" settings? (as suggested here).

Only teasers, I'm afraid! Hopefully someone who knows CoPilot will be along soon to give you a better answer.

CoPilt Premium is the new one that's just been released. It's a complete rewrite of the software so the current instructions will likely need updating... Thing is it means someone needs to do some experimenting...!

don't think your doing anything wrong, i have the same issues although on a planned journey today warned me of all mobile cams on journey, however on return journey not one alert, even though on same route where i know the speedcams are located. all show on map though, very frustrating, i know from copilot forum they are looking to patch their software to allow custom poi imports but this is something that should work out of the box.

have used this version for awhile now, in my opinion very poor product, you only get warnings on a planned route, so if like me you use it daily for trips you know the route of but just want that added comfort of warnings it will not work. likewise the pocketworld gps database odes show but no warning, would suggest you run camalert alongside which is very good.
