Hi Guys, Just bought myself an IPOD Touch plus the Tomtom Cradle with built-in GPS. I link this to my 3G phone via a Wireless connection etc etc. To cut a long story short - is it not possible for the CamerAlert App to download maps for storage permanently instead of having to rely on a connection to download maps relevant to your current position.

sadly not. we use apple's 'mapkit' which does not allow permanent storage of the tiles. it DOES cache some though so if you zoomed in to the level you wanted and move the screen bit by bit to get them to load and do this for your entire route then 1) your fingers would ache and 2) you should have managed to cache the tiles. it's not 100% fool-proof though as i assume there is a limit to how much it will cache.

another option would be to use a MiFi if you have one, or another phone with a data-connection that has wifi tethering. basically mobile wifi that the ipod touch could use for it's data connection.

to be honest though, i didn't think the app physically worked on the ipod touch?!
