Hi,
I have an issue with CamerAlert audible warnings.
I use a Samsung Galaxy S2 running gingerbread 2.3.4 and use the inbuilt bluetooth in my car. The bluetooth is capable of playing the music straight from the phone using A2DP and if I am actually listening to this music I hear the warnings perfectly.

My problem is that the CamerAlert audible warnings are played through the bluetooth A2DP but if I'm listening to the radio and not the music on my phone the audible warnings aren't played as the bluetooth A2DP isn't activated.

Is it possible to get CamerAlert to play a system notification such as the one that alerts you to a new incoming text message as this isn't directed through the bluetooth but comes directly from the phones speaker?

Thanks

I've tried using Tasker to get it to play a system notification when a notification from CamerAlert occurs with a specific title but this doesn't seem to work. It works if I don't specify a title but get constant repeating notification alerts.

Does anyone know what I should set the notification title to so that I only get an alert when approaching a camera.
I've tried mobile ++ *yds) to match the CamerAlert message title of Mobile 30 (xxxyds) but I get no alerts at all.

We don't post such notifications. Unless you mean toasts, but even then these are composite and I doubt Tasker can filter that.

We are bound by publicly available programming APIs. These do not offer the type of audio redirect that you want.
