Great app, really useful.
I've taken to using the list view because the map view often does not seem to be able to keep up (and I have a decent data package with good bandwidth - better then my ADSL much of the time).

Is there a way to make the list view default but still have the option to have a button showing to get the current map tile?

The other thing is I get overwhelmed with alerts and then the tick/cross pop-up appears, but I have no idea which camera it is for. The only way I can tell whether I am coming up on a camera position is by the direction indicator and distance - which are covered by the pop-up making it impossible to know whether I'm Xing the camera location I think I'm at. To exacerbate this, the pop-up seems to disappear before reaching the camera location so when I am sure I am at a location and can see for sure nobody has a hair-drier pointed at me I can no longer press the X.

I've no doubt it is how I have the app configured - I like long warnings for mobile cameras since they have a long range, but if I can't do anything with the pop-up I'd rather not have it appear at all.

Thanks,
Nigel

If you rotate phone / holder through 90 so that you see CA in landscape mode, you'll be able to see all the info about the camera with the tick box at the end.

In the Map Options - Show Map, there are 3 Options. Have you tried the alternatives?

Thanks for the suggestions guys.

Unfortunately I don't want to use the phone landscape - its not that great that way round for SatNav and many other apps (I want to see ahead not to the sides).

I did try the options in the settings. If you choose to default to map view then you get a button to switch to list view and back, but defaulting to list view there is no button to switch to map view.

Thanks again,
Nigel.

Could you not have it set to Map - Always, and then switch it to List View, leaving it until such time as you want to toggle it back to Map View?
