I have both Western Europe and also Australia Tom Tom maps on my iPhone 7 which is using the latest saftware. On the camera alert settings I have always had it set to open the Western Europe map on startup.

For some reason recently it wants to open the Australia map which obviously I don't want. On the settings it only says open Tom Tom so I can't select the Western Europe map as the default.

I am wondering if this change has come about because of the latest IOS update which I did a couple of weeks ago.

It's not a deal breaker but is there a way to reset things so it defaults to the WE map? I will be going to Oz later this year so don't want to remove the maps.

Many thanks

Steve

As CA is just opening TT with no other parameter, it's the TT software that needs investigating.

Hi Steve,

Welcome to the forum! Thumbs Up

As you know CamerAlert for iOS can be set to open a SatNav app when you start CamerAlert. There is a preset number of SatNav apps to choose from. If you would like to open an app that CamerAlert isn't aware of, or a particular TomTom app if you have multiple TomTom apps on one device, then you need to specify the URL Scheme of the specific app that you need.

Start CamerAlert:
Setup (cog icon) | On startup also run | Nothing

In the "Nothing" box type in the relevant URL Scheme:

I know that the following TomTom URL schemes work as I have the TomTom apps on my iPhone:

com.tomtom.Europe://
com.tomtom.UK-Ireland://

Unfortunately I don't know the correct URL scheme for either Western Europe or Australia and I have tried searching for TomTom URL Scheme for both "Australia" and "Western Europe" with no success. However I'm guessing that they are in the same format as above. You could try the following and if they don't work then experiment with or without hyphen etc..

com.tomtom.Western-Europe://
com.tomtom.Australia://

Please let us know what works and what the correct TomTom URL schemes are for Australia and Western Europe.

Regards,

Hi Steve,

Did you get CamerAlert to open your choice of maps, i.e. either Western Europe or Australia on iOS TomTom old app?

If you did, could you let us know the URL Schemes for TomTom Western Europe and Australia?

Regards,
