Survive Amusement Park Adventures with CoPilot!

amusement park

Warm weather leads to outdoor fun and what’s a better way to spend your day then riding roller coasters? Amusement Parks can be an overwhelming place but with your CoPilot app and a few of our tips, we think you can get a pretty good handle on this massive carnival.

weather screenshotCheck the weather: Use CoPilot to check the weather before you leave, that way you can dress accordingly. It’s always a good idea to bring layers in case the weather changes once you arrive.

Park Smart: CoPilot can help you remember where you park, a feature that comes in handy after hours upon hours of being out in a crowd and in the sun.

Charging Case: Along with using CoPilot’s power saving mode, it may be worth it to invest in a case that protects and charges your phone if you’re going to be out of the house for hours at a time.

Waterproof your device…sorta: Keep your phone in a clear, plastic zip lock bag to ensure that it won’t get too wet when you’re on a water ride.

Map out the park: You know how to navigate, you use CoPilot after all! It’s easier to know where you’re headed before you get there and it saves time too! Another useful hint: Start at the back of the park and work your way to the front. Most parkgoers will start at the first ride they see which leads to long wait times for you!

Always pick a spot to meet: If anyone from your group should get lost, make sure to designate a place to meet.

And most importantly, remember to have fun!

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.
