from reading around it seems that putting the app into foreground stops it being killed off.

That's what I am not so sure about - you bring the application to the foreground, but that is not really important, as it is not connected to the service. Who knows what the operating system thinks about this...

I've also experienced this issue on 2.3.3 - I posted a new topic here http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=87453 Which I guess can be closed now.

Interesting about having the app in the foreground, as I had the app displaying when it has happened to me. I didn't have Google Nav or any other nav software running.

Going off topic, but I've had the same thing when trying out Waze last week.

I don't believe there is any use in adding to this subject as it seems to have died. The only response I had in the end was asking me to kill all running apps one by one until the problem stopped. I don't have the time to do that so am looking at other alternatives such as stand-alone solutions eg Road-Angel which I used in the past and which never let me down. It might be argued that the cost is much greater - what is the cost, then, of speeding fines and points on one's driving licence?

I have had this problem for ages and can not find a solution for it.

I am also running 2.3.3 but I am sure that this has happened to my in all 2.3.x versions.

It is also just not when google maps is running as it crashes when I am running copilot 9 as well.

I am going to flash a 2.3.4 this weekend so hopefully it will start working as expected.

I have downloaded EZcam which links to the PGPS database and it works well (doesn't crash) but it just doesn't seem as polished / professional as camera alert, so I would love to get it working.

Possibly EZcam have a smaller memory footprint, and may be a lesser candidate for jettisoning. But hey, what do I know...

I made a longer than usual journey and CamerAlert died on me with the "no loger want" log entry.
Having paid for the subscription, and not wanting to waste it, I thought I would have a closer look at the issue on my Galaxy S (Gingerbread 2.3.3), Could be a long wait for the fix on Android 3.. on Tmobile.

I uninstalled "Battery Mix", because someone had mentioned they had it and the problem, and I then changed some CA settings and the one that made the difference was:

Prevent standby (unchecked),

and I then run CA and fired up GoogleNav over the top of it. No problems, had it running overnight on my windowsill.
I can repeat this failure just by enabling "Prevent Standby"

Reinstalled Battery Mix and I did have a CA crash whilst unplugging the charging lead, but couldn't repeat it, more investigation required. Restarted CA and it has now been running for two hours.

Also had a CA crash when I disconnected my BT speakerphone (again not repeatable), , more investigation required.

Would you mind sending the crash logs nevertheless?
