    On iOS 12 now a bit open for GPS apps, Apple maps, Google maps, Waze, is there a way to have speed camera alerts on? Is it only specific apps, presume Apple maps you can't?

    Also ideally I'd like to have them alert even when just driving along and no route planned, for example around town where I won't set a route etc.

    I'm hoping even if there's an app that can run in background, that will work with CarPlay

    Waze does red light camera alerts. I know that for sure

    I am not sure about speed cameras, but Waze gives me red-light camera alerts on CarPlay.

    Sometimes I think CarPlay takes things too extreme for the sake of safety that it actually makes it less safe.

    So does Waze do the alerts even when you just have it on CarPlay without a route planned?

    An old Sat-Nav I had you could have the camera POI on and even when just driving it alerted you.

    When I use the highway I add my destination even if I know where I’m going cause if there is traffic it will reroute me. Also you get the safety alerts if a car is stopped on the road and the police alerts for speed traps (if other wazers report it)

    I think you get alerts regardless if you enter a destination in.

    Just make sure the app is running.

    It seems to be a matter of the app supporting it. Tmap and Kakao Navi both have speeding / red-light camera alerts on their CarPlay displays.

    As long as it's on the map and/or someone has been reported it, Waze will alert you of speed cameras as long as it's running (you don't need to have a route planned in)

    Thanks I'll try this. This is exactly what I want as don't always plan a route in as know where I'm going in towns etc.

    I use Apple maps normally at mo as like the interface but doesn't seem to have speed cameras which is a pity
