Now that you’ve read about how CoPilot’s ActiveTraffic™ feature can help you find your best route, we thought we’d let you know about how you can further customize your CoPilot to make it work for you.
One of the best ways to achieve this is our ‘Alternate Routes’ feature.
We Lead, But You’re in Control
When you input your destination address and journey requirements into CoPilot, the first route to come up will be optimal one, with all factors and calculations considered (such as traffic, speed limits and distance).
However, should you have any personal preferences, you’re able to control your best way. CoPilot will automatically generate up to three different route alternatives for you, so you can make a selection. These three routes will be calculated using the same algorithm but will vary slightly – to give you some control over your route, should you have any personal preferences. The differing distances and ETAs will be displayed to help you make your decision.
To access these options, click on ‘Alternate’ in the bottom left corner and you’ll be given the option to choose your preferred route.
It’s extremely easy to select from the different variants: simply click on your favored route and then on the ‘back’ arrow in the top left hand corner to return to the ‘My Route’ screen. If you’ve changed your route you will see a popup saying ‘Alternate Route X is now your Current Route’.
This new course will now display on screen.
If you choose to change your route in reaction to the traffic bar, you’re able to choose again from three different routes, just like when you first mapped out your journey.
You can change your route again at any point during your journey, simply click back to the main menu, click ‘My Route’ and click again on the ‘Alternate’ button.
This vital CoPilot feature is sure to become integral to the way you make your journeys: whether they’re one off trips in a new places where you don’t want any nasty surprises, or just to help you optimize your daily duties.
Is there anything more satisfying than beating the crowds and saving time? What are you going to do with all that saved time and money?
