August MapSure requests are now available

We’ve just released a new free monthly map maintenance update for all CoPilot Live North America, CoPilot Live USA, and CoPilot Live Directions customers. The new update includes emergency road closures, updates reported by users via MapSure™ during the month of August and other improvements.  So if you submitted a street or address change in August, it’s now available!

You can download the free update directly from your device via mobile web or WiFi:

  • Go to MENU > Updates and tap “Check for Updates”
  • After the download is finished, make sure to completely restart CoPilot Live to ensure the update is complete.  If you do not restart, you will not see the new map data.

  • Go to MENU > Updates and select the “Check for Updates When CoPilot Starts” option and tap OK

IMPORTANT:  In order to receive the monthly update you MUST have the latest Quarterly Maps on your CoPilot Live for the map maintenance updates to work.

    Are we going to get any newer maps on Android? The latest is all the way back in April of 2009. A lot has changed since then.

      Hi Brian,

      The August MapSure update and the latest quarterly maps are available for Android customers. We released the Q2 2010 maps for Android users a couple weeks ago. Did you purchase your CoPilot Live from Android Market or the CoPilot Web store?

      Thank you,

        I’m from Europe using Premium Live.
        At the moment I have Q3, 2011 maps. But how can I see when there are new map updates? Does it automaticly show in “MyCoPilot –> News and Updates” or do I have to delete maps and then download manually?
        I was buying Copilot 3 months ago, how long time will I get map updates for free (if any)? 1 year? 2 years?

    When are the quarterly and/or monthly updates going to be available for the CoPilot Truck Magellan 1470 / 1700?

      Hi James,

      The quarterly and montly updates will be available for the Magellan 1470 & 1700 when the software is updated to CoPilot Live v8 Truck. The devices are currently running v7. We do not know when that will happen as that is a Magellan decision and you would need to check with them.

      Thank you,

      Hi Brian,

      Please check that you have the latest software version on your Android device – Version You can check within your CoPilot, go to MENU > Settings > About CoPilot. You will see the version # at the top of the screen. The latest version is available as a free update in Android Market. Once you have the latest version, go to MENU > Get Maps and you can download the latest quarterly maps directly from your device. To check for monthly updates (the last one was released on September 15th) go to MENU > Updates and it will check to see if you have the latest monthly update.
