Hi Guys

I have just bought an iPad2 and loaded the CamerAlert App

I had zero luck getting it to work so did a bit of a search on the internet and was told that the iPad2 WiFi version does not have GPS, the only version that does is the 3g version.

Is this correct.

Thanks

Paul

Interesting - I couldn't find anything about ipads here in the forum.

I have used the GPS app to get a reading on my iPad before - so google maps works fine - but i guess you would say that is locating from something else?

As it is advertised as an ipad/iphone app would be good to have a warning.

The screen appeared with a map - used my location - got reasonably close on first map display.

I tried the mirror display mode - as that was my interest - that worked. Then went back to your news letter. Read that. switched back to app - it has hung the ipad. Never seen anything like it - can't force a power off - slide not responding to touch - this is under OS5. Double tap on home key worked once to show the cameraalert icon first in the row - now stop responding - can't even enter passcode phrase now.

Any known issues here? Not surprised Apple saying crashes - it does. Maybe it was about to ask me to download the first free database or subscribe? Despite what you say in your newsletter. Be happy to help you if there is a crash log but it seems to have totally munted the iPad.

If I can get it going I'll try some diagnostics.

@Paul80: you can rig a BT GPS receiver to your iPad2 if you want.

Hi gonville, welcome to PGPSW.

A WiFi fix will get a fairly accurate lock for your location - especially if there's a lot of routers around and you're sitting on your sofa.

COMPATIBILITY: CamerAlert requires a GPS capable device. It supports iPhone 3, 3G & 4 as well as iPad 3G. It will not function on a non 3G iPad as it requires a GPS receiver.

Where did you see it mention it worked on non-3G iPads? We may have a page that needs updating.

As Gerry highlighted - the iTUnes description states what is needed as well as the official site for the app: http://www.cameralert.com/app-platforms/cameralert-for-ios-devices/

Where else would you like us to put the warning?

The iPad 2 does not have built in GPS. I have purchased a GNS 5870 MFI Bluetooth GPS receiver and this works seamlessly with the iPad2. Tested with Tomtom and Viewranger so far. Very Happy

It does if you buy the 3G version - my wife did and it has.

Was just trying to be helpful about the Bluetooth receiver option. I meant to type 'Ipad2 wifi only version' does not have GPS.
