SUPPORT: We ALWAYS reply to support requests. If you've logged a support ticket and you have not received a reply within 24hrs MAX then please check your junkmail or spam filters.
TIP FOR BETTER NOTIFICATIONS: In the main iPhone settings go to Notifications. From the list select CamerAlert & then choose the 'Alert' notification type. This will keep a blue pop up on screen until you have passed the camera. The default is the 'Banner' type which vanishes after 2 seconds.
MIRRORED DISPLAY: If your display is mirrored, then you have the "Mirror Display" option enabled in settings. This is explained in the user-guide - please take a moment to read it before posting a negative review
CamerAlert has two distinct modes: Map and List. In Map mode you are shown a map with the cameras located on it. In List mode you are shown a list of all the cameras in your vicinity. You can see the camera type, distance & direction. CamerAlert supports multitasking so you can run it in combination with your preference of Navigation App.
COMPATIBILITY: CamerAlert requires iOS 9.0 minimum and supports iPhone 3G, 4 & 4S and all iPad 3G models. It will not function on non-3G iPad or iPod Touch unless you use an Apple approved GPS receiver accessory. Map mode requires a data connection. iPod Touch users or those wishing to avoid mobile internet use (or whilst roaming) can run the app in list mode which uses no data.
IMPORTANT: CamerAlert, when first installed, has a demo Speed Camera Database. To ensure you have the latest camera data we include a free trial subscription, after which you will need to subscribe for updates. You do not need to register for the free trial.
In-App subscriptions will be charged to your iTunes account after you confirm the purchase, they do not auto-renew at the end of the purchased period. In-App subscriptions require registration to allow you to restore and use your subscription on all of your devices.
In-App subscriptions are £3.99 for one month, £8.99 for 3 months or £19.99 for 12 months. The database is updated on a weekly basis.
If you are not an existing subscriber you can subscribe via Apple's In-App Purchase service to ensure continued access to updates. In-App subscriptions can be only be used on iOS devices linked to the Apple ID used to make the original In-App purchase.
PocketGPSWorld.com Ltd subscribers can use their annual membership for camera updates by linking within the app.
Another feature, unique to this app, is that the latest data can be downloaded over the air at any time (mobile internet or WiFi required) to ensure you have the most up-to-date speed camera information available at all times.
If you see a camera that is not in the database then you can report it using CamerAlert. This feature can also be used to change information about a camera already in the database i.e. changing speed or direction information.

Ratings and Reviews
Abandoned app but still gets camera updates
The app is now 4 years old without an update. It works but the GUI is no longer safe to use to report new cameras. All the ‘buttons’ are far too small on the new high res screens and there is no voice compatibility to control it hands-free.
The camera data is still the best out there, with weekly full database updates and smaller updates in between. Shame that the same care is not given to the app.
Driving license is a privilege and has to be earned.
This App is a must if you drive three thousand miles a month or just for shopping and a day trip. It can actually make you a better driver as your no longer that idiot who over takes on a country road trying to get to the beach 15 minutes quicker. Your the driver who is more relaxed as you do not have to panic when you arrive near a camera site as your already warned and in control, no more last second braking or panic. The only wish would be if the company would just use the same methods as other big sites.
By far the best
With the weekly updates and superb support via the forums, this is by far the best app for traffic cameras available. It’s the first thing I open when I get in the car. Even when driving in familiar areas, I always use it. The low reviews are from a period while a new version was expected and don’t indicate the current status of this app.
*updated review on 6th November 2021, this still works perfectly well. I still get the correct notifications and the database is maintained and updated weekly. Highly recommended.
