Petrol Crisis? What Petrol Crisis – Keep one step ahead with CoPilot Live

With the prospect of a ‘may be/may be not’ tanker strike and the governments somewhat ambiguous advice to ‘use common sense’ but ‘top up’ anyway, a predictable rush to the pumps has ensued.

Never the less, people still need to travel, so how about using some of CoPilot Live’s features to research your journey beforehand?

  •  Use the POIs – Pull up a list of petrol stations and phone ahead through CoPilot Live – check on stock and queues without using precious fuel. Target less obvious stations away from the main roads and super markets
  • Check your route – whether it’s a drive you do regularly or a new destination, use Alternate routes to see whether there are alternative ways to your destination – a few more minutes on the road may pay dividends in helping you avoid obvious and therefore congested roads
  • Check your profile – Are you favouring/avoiding motorways? Would customising your speed limits help you conserve fuel?
  • ActiveTraffic – For a £9.99 12 subscription warnings about congestion on your proposed route could save you its price in fuel many times over.

However you travel this weekend and for the forth coming Easter break, let CoPilot Live Premium help ensure your fuelled and ready to go!

    i bought copilot hd europe for my ipad 1. I have now upgraded to ipad 3 and it no longer works (shows the same screen twice on the same page in the top 25%of the screen).

    could you let me know when you plan on fixing this issue – i’ve had the software for a little over a year and now it doesn’t work

      Hi, please go to your iPad settings>CoPilot and Reset Defaults. The resolution of the iPad 3 is very different from the initial one.
