Downloaded this morning.

Had no sound for some reason. Closed the app and restarted - sound working fine....

All seems fine so far. Like the alert banner (can't remember proper name for it) that now appears at the top of the screen on each alert.

Downloaded latest today, was happy when saw one of updates was to add bluetooth support. I turned it on in settings, first camera I came to it worked perfectly though bluetooth in my car like a phonecall. But from then on nothing now.

Found it nothing to do with bluetooth, sounds stops working if I use internal speaker too! This makes app useless now as I use it behind tomtom app!

Two things:

1) We're aware of the issue with the audio and are looking into it. For now you will need to double-tap the home button and force quit the app then restart it.

2) Go to iPhone settings > Notifications > CamerAlert > set to ĎAlertí. Then you get a pop up on screen when in background mode:
Tip: iPhone settings > Notifications > CamerAlert > ... on Twitpic
the pop up disappears once you have passed the camera.

CamerAlert does not appear in the Notification Centre in Setings on my iPhone 4? Is there a way to fix this so I can switch the alerts on until the audio is fixed?

currently testing a fix that should (hopefully) force the app to display in the list of apps in notification settings.

Like to add that I'm also having issues with the sound (voice) notification since the update. The nice sounding lady has gone very quiet since the upgrade... Which was a little worrying when I set off on my 2.5hr journey.

Priot to the update it always notified me when I had it running in the background (iPhone 4), with CoPilot running in the foreground.

Are there any instructions on how to turn on the voice notifications again?

Also, have to say, having a little 'pop up' at the top of the screen when approaching a safety camera is, IMO, pretty useless and I would want to turn this off. Bring back the voice, please!

Thanks, Richard

close the app fully (task manager) and restart it - that will bring sound back. the sound only goes off in background mode. so if you leave it in the foreground it will keep warning. a fix has been submitted to apple for review

you can turn it off in the main iphone settings under notifications - however the same issue that is stopping the app showing in the notification settings is the very thing that's stopping the audio.

when working properly (like it was on my iPhone 4 during testing) you can change the notifications to a blue pop up (shown above) so you see the camera details regardless of what app you are using - you can turn it off in the settings too.

however for some reason not all phones are showing this option. the update submitted to apple has removed the notifications completely and also fixed the sound issues. we will worry about adding the notifications again in a later update.
