Skins coming to CoPilot – Vote for your favourite!

It’s August, and that means holiday for some of us. Not so for our development team who are hard at work finalising our next CoPilot Live satnav app update. One of the things we’ll be introducing in the next update is the ability to change the colour scheme in CoPilot. In other words, skins are on the way!

We tasked our designers to come up with a variety of options – “use your imagination” we said – and to tell the truth, we’ve been pretty impressed with the results. But we can’t decide which ones we prefer – and that’s where we could use some help from you.

We are not going to show you ALL of the options the designers came up with at this stage – there’s got to be some room for surprises. However, we’d like to invite you to take a look at some of the concepts on our shortlist and tell us which ones you’d like us to add to the sat nav app. The most popular will DEFINITELY make the cut.

You can vote for your favourite by “Liking” the photo on our CoPilot Live Facebook page or by commenting in our CoPilot Live G+ page, Twitter @copilotlive or this blog post.

New Colour Schemes:

1. Cherry Pop – A bright “CoPilot Red” Inspired Design


2. Neon Rain – A High Contrast, Sleek Electric Design


3. Wildlife – A Subtle, Earthy, Contemporary Design


4. Limonade – A Clean & Refreshing Stir of Green and Pink


Please let us know which one you like the most. We don’t have a monopoly on ideas, so if you can suggest some other skin themes or indeed other ways in which you’d like to personalise your CoPilot just let us know!

    like the neon rain – would be even cooler if it were possible to choose the colour (ie change the blue to green or red etc) to match car displays in different makes and models.

    Love them all but NEON RAIN is my favorite – would be even cooler if it were possible to choose the colour (ie change the blue to green or red etc) to match car displays in different makes and models.

    I don’t know where to post this but it would be great to include a address search like google maps has where i can just type the entire address in one line makes it alot easier .

    Hard to tell which theme would be easier to read at a glance, but I think Cherry Pop would be the best for “old” eyes…selectable themes just like the present map color options would be best!

    I don’t think you can describe these as skins. Colour schemes, yes. Anyway, they all seem decent. I wonder if the neon one would use any less battery. I’ve read conflicting arguments over whether more white on the screen means more power usage.

      They’ll be called ‘Themes’ when they become available within CoPilot. The black background doesn’t use less battery compared to white, they both use the same amount of power to display.
