Speed Camera App

Post by Zobware » Sun Jul 26, 2020 7:51 pm

Some might already know this but thought I'd share.

Downloaded a free App called TomTom Amigo, very impressed with the speed camera functionality, app can autostart when connected to the cars Bluetooth and play warning through phone or Bluetooth, also does traffic alerts. Does not seem to drain battery either.

I downloaded on Android but also download on my wife's iPhone and seems to work well on both.

Setting - scroll down to automatic start then selle t your cars Bluetooth. I also selected always use speaker and just sound not ounce when a speed camera us coming up. Phone just pings and turns on and off when in car as it picks up the Bluetooth.

I have had TomTom Amigo for quite a while, its excellent, with Auto start just forget about it, and as long as you radio is not turned up to loud it just reports everything from cameras to roadside hazards. It must be connected to wifi I think because it has told me about broken down vehicles which have not being there long.

I can't find the autostart functionality on my iPhone.. Maybe it is only available on Android phones ?

I tried the app today but I am confused, does it lay on top of AA?
The app shows speed GPS but it's not shown using AA.

Sorry if it's not clear, I was expecting to see the Amigo screen.

I’ve downloaded Tom Tom Amigo to my Samsung Galaxy S9+ and I can see the maps complete with speed cameras on my phone but I can’t see the App on my 2020 Tiguan SEL Infotainment screen unlike Waze which does come up on the Infotainment screen OK.

Can anyone tell me how to get Amigo onto the Info Screen please?
