I have the camalert app for iphone.
£20 a year
Its crowd sourced so tends to be quite accurate.
You get a free lifetime sub if you send in details of a new camera through the app.
Works abroad in some countries but will be less accurate.
Displays average speed through average speed camera zones...green if under and red if over posted limit.

Will this just work on the I Phone Bob, or can it run through Apple Car Play, and be displayed on the main screen ?.

I don't believe its an app on the approved list for Carplay at least not for my car.
When I use mine its set to give a verbal warning on approach to cameras...interrupting whatever music is playing on the idrive.
TBF I haven't used it in a while.

I used to use something that picked up pretty much all the cameras but got fed up with pinging every faking second around here. I just took the view that it’s just easier and less stressful to just obey the limits. But then again, I am of an age

Unfortunately it misses many of them ...............so you need a back-up, I use the AGURI-skyway pro GTX80, good bit of kit.
Scott, does it attach/ stick to windscreen or lie on top of dash?

If you are asking me, it has suction cups to attach to the screen resting on the dash.

There is of course Waze which does show on iDrive.
Its free and crowd sourced so tends to be fairly up to date.

You can get updates for free and IF you find a camera not in the data bank phone them and they will add it, some cameras are just added very recent, not many I might add, or if the scammy vans regularly in a spot you use they will add that too.

that's what I used last week going up to Leeds for a Wedding. The first time on a long run and finally set up the RSE.
The only annoying thing was the Homer Simpson voice alerts, but I think my son had something to do with that.

Waze seems to be pretty good for France (where it is illegal to use a detector or warning device)
