Yes, seems to be!

What's not running exactly? Have you tried removing and reinstalling the app?

Running iOS5 here (as we have been for some months) and CamerAlert runs fine.

Can you provide more detail on the issue as it's not related to iOS5.

I have a a iPhone 4s and prior to that I had an iPhone 4. My previous iphone connected to my Parrot MKi9000 instantly and to run camera alert with the sound coming through the car speakers in my Passat was simply a matter of running a silent MP3 so that the voice could break in over the track playing.

Since I got the new phone I can't seem to get itt to work reliably by that method except when I have Tomtom running at the same time. It will work but either in total silence or with the sound coming from the phone not the car speakers. Run Tomtom at the same time and all is well!

And have you checked that CamerAlert is set to pipe audio via the car and not the internal speaker?

Yes Darren, it is set to pipe via the car speakers, but it doesn't.

I've read the manual thoroughly and used camera alert and tomtom independently and together for several months on iOS 4

Ah ok, you'll forgive me for asking but needed to ask!

I've alerted the dev team to this thread to see if they have any insight into this issue.

I'm wondering if this is a problem with the hardware in the car and not camera alert? I have a brodit active holder and I have my suspicions that it may be that at fault. It has lost its connection a couple of times today - the phone thro the speakers has failed too until I played around with the phone in the mount. I also own a tomtom mount so I will try that tomorrow to see if that works OK

I've not tried the tomtom mount yet but I have had a look at the Brodit mount and I am fairly certain that the issue is that when I got the iphone 4S I got a new bumper as well and that was preventing the phone sitting in the Brodit cradle properly. With the bumper removed, the phone makes a secure connection with the cradle. This results in a good output using both the phone and the tomtom app, which has a good audio output . Sadly the same can not be said of the cameralert app, which has visual but (most of the time) no audio. Sometimes you get audio, usually when tomtom is running as well.

I've spoken to James at ASI - He installed the Parrott for me. There are 3 potential issues with my problem............

The first is that Parrott issued a software update a while back and I need to install that so I have the system up to date

The second is not related to my problem with cameralert, but there is an upgrade to the tomtom app which I need to install

Finally - and this may well be the problem (?). Not only did I upgrade to iOS5, I upgraded to the iphone 4S at the same time, because I wanted the better camera. James tells me that the bluetooth on the 4S has been upgraded to a later version (v4 I think he said), and previously I had an iphone4 which uses V3.5.

I am working today so I can't do the parrott upgrade until later but I have downloaded the software ready to do so. I'll report back later.

Not easy for us to offer advice when so many variables have changed.

Darren, with respect, I appreciate that a few variables have changed but that makes it no different than a new problem!

After much testing I can comfirm that after a software upgrade to the parrot kit and a download of the latest Tomtom app :

a) the Parrot car kit is working perfectly on phone calls

b) the Tomtom app is working perfectly with both audio and visual

c) as before, the cameralert has good visual most of the time but sometimes loses the map ( it has always had that annoying problem since I've had it on all iPhone versions) and despite trying every combination I can only get audio throught the phone, not the car speakers.

Since the phone works perfectly through the car speakers and the tomtom does too, there is therefore a problem with the cameralert app pushing audio on iPhone 4s or an active Brodit mount. Since the app had no problem pushing audio through the Brodit mount with an iPhone 4 it is reasonable to assume that there is therefore a problem relating to the cameralert app and either iOS 5 or the iiphone 4S.

Whatever, it needs sorting!

Can anyone else with a 4s and BT speakers confirm this?

After pulling my hair out trying to get camerlert working yesterday in an active Brodit mount, with an iphone4s and iOS5 I've finally managed it.

Nothing whatsoever has changed. I got in the car this morning, plugged the phone in the mount and it worked perfectly with cameralert. I haven't changed anything at all - no settings are changed. Yesterday it wouldn't work, today it does. I suspect there is possibly a problem with my Brodit mount since the iphone4s works fine in the tomtom mount

I've also tried my wifes iphone 4 running iOS5 and that is functioning perfectly as well in both the Brodit & tomtom mounts
