CoPilot App Updates come to iOS, requires iOS 6

Our latest update, v 9.4.0.276, is available now for iOS users! Here’s what you get with our  free update:copilot-just-drive-iphone4_US

  • NEW! Connection Settings with an offline switch – We’re giving our users an offline switch to help you control your data costs. – abroad and at home. You are able to disallow all data, or choose options to enable and disable. The app also warns you if your mobile switches from WIFI to 3G. Just go to “Settings” -> “Cellular Data Usage” and choose which settings work for you.
  • NEW! Just Drive mode- for all the times your journey has no destination, this mode allows you to drive without a route but still provides you with your location and traffic on your road.
  • NEW! Closed road notification with ActiveTraffic™- If our traffic feed says there is a closed road on your route we now give an explicit pop-up notifying you about the closed road. The pop-up gives you an option to find an alternative route or close/ignore the pop-up.
  •  Automatic Cloud Backup
  • Updated and corrected Tunnel mode and other fixes

Following their exciting WWDC conference, Apple has made some changes to the requirements for detecting devices. Our CoPilot team has adjusted our process accordingly which means that all future app updates will work with devices equipped with iOS 6.0 or greater.copilot-data-settings-iphone4_US

Most of our users will be unaffected because every iPhone is that CoPilot runs on has iOS 6. If you have iOS 5, we strongly recommend updating to iOS 6 to continue using CoPilot and receiving all of our future updates.

For iPad (1st Generation) customers who are unable to update to a newer OS version: you can of course continue to use your CoPilot app exactly as before, but will be unable to update to a newer version of CoPilot on that device. You may wish to download the current app from the App Store to iTunes on your computer as a backup should you need it, as you may be unable to download and install it from the App Store to your device.

If you get a new iPad in the future, you’ll be able to simply re-download from the App Store and login to continue using it – and get future app updates.

    I do not see traffic with Just Drive Now, nor does the speedometer do anything.

      ActiveTraffic will not display in Just Drive mode – as it doesn’t know where you driving to so can’t warn you about traffic as it doesn’t know which roads you plan to take. The speedometer will update its speed when you move.
