I'm trying to change the way the display shows on my 3GS. Just read the manual and see it can be either North up or Course up but I can't see any option to change it. It's just annoying that when I dive up our street, the display shows the main road at the top on the bottom of the display - upside down?

Are you talking about the map rotation or about the street names?

To switch from North Up to Course Up you need to enable "Rotate map" in the CamerAlert settings.

Since the maps are basically image tiles (yes, even on iOS 6.x) the street names may appear upside down.

OK thanks, I'll give that a try as it was turned off. Street names don't worry me it just seems odd to see the display upside down when I'm driving:)

it's also upside down when you are driving east - for streets running N-S.

On other forums this question would be classified as trolling...

Sorry but not TROLLING at all! Just wanted to make this excellent APP the way I want it to work as I would have expected it to!! Why would I be TOLLLING? Just asked a simple question!! I have a problem, I ask a question on a FORUM related and hope for an answer!
Maybe I need to find another forum more acceptable to these questions?

@lencuff : Apologies - I should have included the winkie.

So yes - "Rotate display" WILL get you sane again.
