CoPilot Live on ‘Froyo’ Android 2.2 – Update now available

We’ve released a CoPilot Live v8 update for Android that includes support for version 2.2 of the Android operating system, also known as ‘Froyo’. The update is available immediately as a free download to your Android smartphone.  We know many of you have been eagerly awaiting this update and we’d like to thank those of you who have been able to upgrade your phones to Froyo for your patience. It appears that many people have been able to download an unofficial version of the Froyo OS shortly after it was first announced in May, and it’s taken us several weeks to develop and road test our compatible version of CoPilot Live. Right now, Froyo is only officially available for Google’s Nexus One Smartphone.

Here’s how to install the update:

  • Android Market Customers: If you bought your CoPilot Live on the Android Market, you can get our latest app update from the Android Market
  • Boxed Product & Download Versions: If you purchased your CoPilot Live on the CoPilot webstore or through one of our authorised distributors, you’ll need to download and install the latest CoPilot Live app update by visiting www.copilotlive.com/androidinstall on your phone’s web browser.

Thank you for choosing CoPilot Live GPS navigation for your Android smartphone.

Happy travels this summer!

    If you have Android 2.1 DO NOT INSTALL THIS UPDATE (ver 8.2.0.218)

    Although the update is visible on the Android Market for Android 2.1 phones, the update is intended for Android 2.2 (API level 8) and does not work on Android 2.1 (API level 7).

    The sound is disabled, and therefore voice guidance does not work.

      Hi Allan,

      The recent update (version 8.2.0.218) does work on Android 2.1. devices. Please note this update has been tested. I’m not sure why it is not working for your particular device. I suggest you contact our Support team directly to help. You can do so here: http://www.alk.eu.com/support/copilot-support/question-uk.asp

      Thank you,
      Devon

        Hello Devon

        I deactivated/un-installed/re-installed the app and the sound is still muted (the level slider does not work). However, I then went to voices and selected test TTS voice. This unlocked the sound slider, and the voice test was OK.

        Looking at the feed-back on the Market, it looks like other people have had problems with the update. Perhaps my experience will help.

        Thanks

          Thank you for sharing the additional detail into the issue you’re having. Do you mind if I ask what device you’re using? We are defnitely looking into it to ensure other users are not having the same issue.

          Thanks again!

            Have the same issue on my HTC Desire with 2.1. But it’s not so big deal for me, because I dont like voice guidance and I am disabling it as first thing after install.
