If I eg choose Camalert to autostart Google Maps, whenever I later select Camalert it immediately switches to Google Maps so I can't get to any settings including to change the auto-startup app itself.

I feel sure I must be doing something wrong, but can't work out what. So I had to delete the preferences file on the iPhone directly, and start again, but what a faff.

iPhone 3GS 32gb, iOS 5.0.1

The 3GS supports multitasking? If so just Press Home twice quickly and select CamerAlert from the icons displayed?

Indeed it does, but whenever I switch back to Camalert it immediately brings the linked startup app back to the foreground.

I'm not seeing that behaviour on my 3GS.

Google Maps to Auto-Start

Launch CamerAlert, Google Maps starts and becomes active app.

Double-tap HOME button, select CamerAlert

CamerAlert is then active app.

I take it that yours JailBroken?

Ok, it must be peculiarity of my (jailbroken) device.

I wanted it when driving around not using satnav, although I would feel much happier using the PocketGPS database with CoPilot Premium (v9)! If I manually start Camalert and CoPilot Premium, will it link? Keeping Camalert running in the background, of course.

You don't have to have it auto start any app. Just launch CamerAlert and then launch the app of your choice and use HOME to switch between?
