Download the Latest CoPilot Live App-Update for Android!

We’ve just released an update for our CoPilot Live Premium and Standard GPS navigation apps.

The last few weeks have been pretty exciting for us here at CoPilot Live, and we greatly appreciate the many positive reviews and comments we’ve received already. We know some of you have been eagerly awaiting this update and we’d like to thank you for your patience and your feedback.

The new update (version is available to download immediately:


-Support for additional text-to-speech (TTS) voice engines including Loquendo
-Improved ability to transfer a CoPilot Live v8 traffic subscription to CoPilot Live Premium and Standard.
-Improved installation following ROM updates
-Improvements to routing, in particular when you have selected an alternate route*
-Adds a CoPilot ID password reminder feature


-Resolves repetition of spoken next turn instructions
-Resolves in-app purchase Google notifications issue
-Fixes an issue where POI graphics were corrupted on certain devices
-Various minor UI and bug fixes

*Note: available with CoPilot Live Premium or with the optional Personal Routes pack in CoPilot Live Standard


We will be releasing further updates that bring additional new features and improvements based on your feedback.

In particular we are currently doing some final testing to bring you the ability to import custom Points of Interest (POIs). It’s not quite ready yet, but we’re expecting this to be available in our next update, which will be released very soon.

    Can you please either provide new instructions or update the existing post for the “Improved installation following ROM updates?” For example: Will this mean that maps will not have to be deleted and then re-downloaded? Will settings be saved then updated for the new installation? Is program uninstall still required?

    Thank You

      Hi Les,

      Prior to the Android update, if an Android Market customer updated the ROM on their phone they would have to delete the USER.CFG file and the SAVE folder from their SD Card in order to reinstall Copilot from the Android Market.

      The update has fixed this where now if a customer updates their ROM, they can simply redownload Copilot from the Android Market and it will install with no problems.

      Also, since the settings and map data are stored on the SD Card, your device will all remain untouched during this process.

      Thank you,

        Thank You for the information. Just by coincidence I had uninstalled and reinstalled CPL8 and 9 Tuesday night when having to reflash my device for other troubleshooting. As usual, I was able to keep the maps for CPL8 and just deactivated the license but had to go through another 90-minute download for CPL9 maps.

        RE: storing settings and map data on SD card: You may or may not not be aware of this but some of the android devices invented a new naming and mounting convention – user accessible internal storage on a few models is now defined as an internal SD card and the actual SD card is then labeled or named then mounted as an external SD card (/mnt/sdcard-ext). Baring program redesign a lot of software, including CPL, cannot access anything stored on the real SD card. This applies to phones like droid X2 and atrix and apparently many of the hemorrhoid tablets. I have already submitted a support ticket to ALK and the response was that they are disinclined to change software for this. Not sure if this really impacts any instructions that you have saved but just in case thought that I would mention it.

    Hello, I am interested in getting this software for my wife’s Toshiba Thrive, but I will like to know if the gps navigation system will work in Costa Rica? Cheers

    Dear support, You’ve released a map update for USA. How about EU maps? Do you plan to do that? There have been many changes on the roads.
    Thank you,
