I have a Desire, and works fine. Wildfire is more or less the same and it works OK as far as I know.
There have been other posters on here who use CA on Wildlfire with no problems.

It will work on any Android device running Android 1.5 or higher.

GPS chip required!

If your considering buying a Wildfire you may wish to wait for the new version coming out soon.

According to the reports the 'Wildfire S' has a far superior screen, apparently a complaint on the current model.

Bit late I know, but yes, CamerAlert does work on the Wildfire and is very handy if you've forgotten to pack your satnav Very Happy

Mobile cameras, as the name suggests, are NOT always there. Mobile cameras have a "lifetime" and if a "Seen Again" report is not made for a camera for some time then it is removed from the database. All the 70 Mobiles in the database will have been seen recently by other users.

Average Speed Zones - If in roadworks, these are frequently moved. Did you submit them for removal?? The database relies on memebers submitting changes so we can verifiy them. If members dont submit changes how do we know to make them?

1) Did you update the database recently?

2) Do you mean SPECs or Mobiles? No point in reporting a Mobile Camera as NOT Been Seen Again. We only make a note of when Mobiles ARE Seen Again. SPECs need submitting though although there are no SPECs in the database on the A12 between Chelmsford and Brentwood. The closest would appear to be on the M25...

no, don't ignore them. they are places where mobile cameras are known to be used. ignore at your own peril!
