I'm a very happy motorcycling CamerAlert android app user of years. Has run fine on most phones. But it would be hugely useful to set different alert sounds for different camera types. Specifically fixed vs mobile.
Is there a setting I'm missing, couldn't find anything in the manual or this forum, or is perhaps on a development roadmap.

Cheers

Don't you use the spoken warnings?

Y'know "Speed camera ahead, 30mph" etc, (Average speed camera, mobile camera, redlight camera, redlight and speed camera, unverified mobile camera)

I'm not an Android user, I'm iPhone and those warnings are available on the iPhone version.

Look at the manual here - http://www.cameralert.com/manual/?os=android

On a motorcycle?

Perhaps it's worth mentioning that France has banned earpiece reception in vehicles and on bikes and motorcycles. Some m/c helmets with fully integrated earpieces are permitted.

In which case should you be using CamerAlert in France? Wink

However, no, aside from using the spoken alerts (fixed speed camera, 30 miles per hour", "mobile camera zone, 50 miles per hour" etc and the different icons per camera type there's not an option for different alerts.

Yeah I've reverted to the shortened spoken warnings, shame though.

... but remember that people are not limited to the spoken alerts that PGPSW provide. People can make their own, or use others' ( or adapt them).

... I made my own, which work well, and are briefly spoken.

PGPSW alerts slowly recite "bong .. bong .. bong, .. fixed ... speed .. camera, .. 30 .. miles .. per .. hour".

Mine says briskly "bong-bong Gatso 30"

(or bong-bong Gatso 30 East if using Kremmen's directional pack).

You could alter the *bong-bong* alert sound of PGPSW (ie to differentiate between fixed and mobile cameras) - you can alter this in Audacity quite easily.
Anybody please send me a PM if you want my own alerts (free of charge and in a friendly Yorkshire tone).
