Greatest Hints: 7 CoPilot Tips To Remember!

Our iOS 7 day sale ends today. To help you decide whether or not to get 10% off our CoPilot Premium apps, we’ll remind you of all that CoPilot has to offer. There are so many great features in your CoPilot app that can help make your navigation guide as personal as possible! We’ve given you some Helpful Hints in the past – here’s a refresher of our most popular tips:

 

IMG_1801Themes

There are plenty of ways to customize CoPilot to your liking but perhaps the best way to showcase your style is choosing the right theme! The easy part is getting there – Head to Settings – > Themes. The hard part is making a choice between our gorgeous themes.

 

 

 

Cellular Data UsageIMG_1773

Our new connection settings feature allows our users to control how much of their data CoPilot uses while helping you navigate the open road. You can manage your Cellular Data Usage by tapping Settings -> Cellular Data Usage

 

 

power saving icon Power Saving

In addition to lowering screen brightness and turning off vibrate mode, CoPilot offers a way to help reduce the amount of battery used.

Inside the CoPilot app, you can go to Settings -> Power Saving. Once there, choose a lower setting which will move the map display fewer times per second and help save your battery.

 

 

Trip OptimizationIMG_1776

If you’re looking to hit the road with multiple destinations, CoPilot’s Trip Optimization feature will help you save time and money no matter how many stops you have.

The Trip Optimization feature allows you to plan for 20 different stops. To add stops  go to Route -> Plan or Edit Trip -> Add Stop.

 

 

Parking iconParking

Once you park your car, you can save the location by going to More -> Parking. Once there, simply tap to save this location. You can also leave yourself a note in case you want to remember the price of the garage or what time the meter runs out.

Tackle Game Day Traffic with CoPilot!

Football season is back! Whether it be college or pro, we know many of you are headed to the stadiums to cheer on your favorite team. Face paint? Check. Tailgating must-haves? Check. Traffic? Don’t forget to check!

Use ActiveTraffic™ to make sure you won’t miss any of the action!

There are over 145 stadiums in the United States, all with their own unique atmosphere. Looking to find the stadium that offers a little more than football? Here’s a list to get you started:

Scenic Sports Spectator:

If you’re nice or nautical, try “sailgating” at Husky Stadium. If boats aren’t your thing, head to the CenturyLink Stadium to catch the SeaHawks play. This Seattle staple is home to over 30 craft beers so if you’re not enjoying the game, you can at least enjoy a variety of beer.

Foodie Football Fans:

Surprisingly, the same place that you can find an authentic Philly cheesesteak is the same stadium PETA touts as the #1 most vegetarian friendly stadium. Lincoln Financial Field offers up great local cuisine from the city of Brotherly Love including soft, warm donuts by neighborhood favorite Federal Donuts.

Preservers of Pigskin Past:

If you’re looking to get some history out of your football experience, why not head to the Superdome in New Orleans? This place has hosted more Super Bowls than any other stadium and is surrounded by a city rich in culture and American history. Or you could catch a game at High Points Solution Stadium at Rutgers University, the birthplace of college football.

No matter which Gridiron Gang you belong to, we hope you make it to and from the stadium with ease. Enjoy the game!
