T-Mobile MDA Compact IV with CoPilot Live 7 – now available

CoPilot Live on the T-Mobile MDA Compact IV

We are pretty excited to see that the T-Mobile MDA Compact IV is now available to order on the T-Mobile UK web site.¬†The Compact IV is a sleek-looking phone with a clever new user interface and full Internet access via it’s in-built¬†Opera browser.¬†What we like most about it¬†= each one includes a seven day free trial to CoPilot Live 7!

Mobile phone afficionados will know that (unlike other Windows Mobile phones) the MDA Compact IV does not have a memory card slot, but rather an impressive 4GB internal memory. CoPilot Live 7 software and maps of UK and Ireland are preinstalled on the phone. Once the 7 day trial expires, customers will need to buy a full license to continue using CoPilot Live. For more information take a look at the T-Mobile web site.

    Wanted to but this phone, but tried phoning customer services at T-mobile, to try and find out how much it would cost to buy a full license… they don’t know… not very helpful… Can anyone give me an idea? thanks

    Hello Alan. It is £49.95 for a CoPilot Live 7 full license for T-Mobile MDA Compact IV users. This includes a 2-year subscription to traffic.

    I have recently bought an MDA compact IV with Copilot pre installed.
    I have a couple of questions, to which I can’t find the answers on the net.
    1. Since the program is pre installed, and the set up disc doesn’t come with a copy of copilot, how do I ensure I have a back-up copy of the program. Do you provide back up copies?

    2. The copilot program when bought separately comes with a program for managing the copilot installation from your desk-top. This feature appears to be missing from the list of features of the pre installed version. Is this the case? If so do you provide a down-load service for this?

    Hi Matthew, thanks for the e-mail. I hope you are enjoying your MDA Compact IV. The version of CoPilot Live that is pre-installed on the MDA Compact IV does not include CoPilot Central desktop software. There are no plans to offer it as a download currently. However should you need to reload the maps and software image it can be provided either as a download or on a CD via our customer support team.

    “However should you need to reload the maps and software image it can be provided either as a download or on a CD via our customer support team”

    I only got to use a days trial and thorugh a problem with the phone; Tmobile instructed that I do a full reset. Since then Co Pilot hasn’t worked and says (after displaying the copilot 7 screen) .. “unable to open copilot. Please make sure storage card is inserted or that the data has been properly downloaded”.

    Can you please provide me with the download so that I can see if its worth buying!

    Kind Regards,

    @ Joe – the MDA Compact IV appears to be out of stock at T-Mobile right now, but the Vario IV is available which is essentially the same phone but with the addition of a full QWERTY keyboard
