Helpful Hint: Cellular Data Usage

In a world where we can stream movies and music straight to our devices, data usage has become a concern for many users.

We understand that data is a precious commodity among smartphone users. Here at CoPilot, we want you to be able to watch that really cute cat video on YouTube without worrying about our app contributing to your data decrease. 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. Once there, you’ll have the option of enabling your treasurable data only for the services you wish to use. Please remember, when downloading our maps always connect to a WiFi network to avoid data charges.
