Hi All!
I use Tomtom navigation app with carplay, and I love it, but I have a question: How can I to announce a mobile speed camera in CarPlay?
I can't find an opportunity for it, though it would be useful enough. Getting on the phone while driving is quite tricky.
Thanks!

    Hi

    In my opinion there is no button on the Carplay screen to report a speed camera.

    Hi @csontimontir

    Sorry but there is no option to do that in CarPlay. Maybe @lampard can forward that to the development team for future inclusion

    Hi @csontimontir

    Firstly select a Computerised Voice not a Recorded Voice.

    Ie Tap Menu
    Tap Settings
    Tap voices
    Select a Computerised voice like Serena for English U.K.
    Select all the options offered ie Read Aloud Etc

    Now Select Settings/Sounds and Warnings
    Select Read aloud Warnings in Warning type
    Then select which type of Cameras you want to be warned about in Speed Cameras

    The same applies under Safety Warnings

    With these settings you will get a sound warning then an indication of the type of cameras you are approaching.

    Thanks for your reply Doug, but my problem is not about the warnings what I get, but I have no option to give a warning about the mobile speed cameras to other users in carplay.
    If I use the app in my phone, there is an option to announce cameras, but in carplay mode is not.

    Although there is no report button on carplay, It is still possible to report cameras via voice command/Siri (you have to add the shortcut first though)
    - Settings > Siri Shortcuts > Add

    Thanks Sinny, it's seems to be a good solution for my problem. I will try it.
