The Best Speed Camera Alert System Now Available As an Iphone App

PocketGPSworld.com launches its CamerAlert app

London, 18th June 2010 - iPhone users can now have access to the best speed camera protection via their mobile devices for less than the cost of a chocolate bar, with the launch of  ‘CamerAlert’ from PocketGPSworld.com.

The new iPhone app, available from the iTunes Appstore, provides a speed and red light camera warning system that alerts drivers to camera locations and speed limits as they approach, based on the world renowned PocketGPSWorld.com Speed Camera Database and serve as a useful safety aid.

Uniquely, CamerAlert also clearly displays the driver’s average speed when they are in an area of average speed cameras, ensuring they are aware of their speed between each camera in the zone.  It also reduces the number of ‘false alerts’ received by drivers by only identifying cameras that monitor their direction of travel.

CamerAlert is easy to use and overlays the camera data on the in-built iPhone map, showing the location, type and distance to the camera. The audible and visual warnings provide full coverage of fixed (including Gatso and Truvelo), mobile (Safety Camera Partnership vans and hand-held laser), red-light, ‘redspeed’ (combined red-light and speed), and SPECS (average speed) cameras.

CamerAlert is available direct from the iTunes Appstore (http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/cameralert/id336238843?mt=8) for £0.59, which includes one free database update. To continue receiving database updates users can subscribe to the service via the CamerAlert application or via the web at http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/subscription.php. The subscription can be used on other GPS devices as well as the iPhone (maximum of three devices). Existing PocketGPSWorld.com subscribers can use their £19.99 annual membership to keep the camera data up to date by linking their member details in the app.
