These¬†include improved audio support for Bluetooth car kits and (for devices running Android OS v2.2), the ability to run CoPilot Live from a SD memory card.¬†
Thanks to all¬†the customers that provided us their¬†feedback!
How to run from SD:¬†
If your Android phone or tablet device is running Android OS version 2.2 aka Froyo, you can now run CoPilot Live directly from a memory card to free up memory space on your phone.¬† Instructions for setting this up may vary depending on your phone but here is a typical example of how it should work for most Android devices:
- On your Android device, go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > CoPilot Live North America (or USA)
- Select Move to SD Card (or similar).¬†¬†Alternatively if CoPilot Live is already installed on the SD card you can choose to¬†Move to phone
- Please note Run from SD is not available for phones with Android OS version 2.1 or earlier
Improved audio performance for Bluetooth car kits:¬†¬†¬†
CoPilot Live’s¬†spoken instructions¬†will now be heard¬†only¬†through the car kit‚Äôs speaker (as opposed to the device and car kit).
More reliable map downloading:
We have fixed an issue relating to map-unpacking that was causing installation errors for some customers.
And for those who haven‚Äôt tried it yet, this update also includes 14 days use of the ActiveTraffic service.¬† It‚Äôs absolutely free for 14 days and after the 14 days is complete‚ÄĒthere is no obligation to purchase.¬† If you like the service, you can purchase 12 months of use for $9.99 from CoPilot Central or the CoPilot Live webstore ‚Äď where it‚Äôs currently 15% off with promo code Autumn15!¬† Just enter the code at checkout.¬†
If you decide you don‚Äôt need a traffic service at this time or are lucky enough to live in an area that is congestion free‚ÄĒ that‚Äôs no problem‚ÄĒwe thank you for giving it a try!¬† As we stated you will not be charged for anything.
