CoPilot Live Premium v9.3 for Android is here!

copilot-sat-nav-for-androidHello Androidians! Our development team has finalised our latest version of CoPilot Live sat nav, and it’s available as a free update right now for Android through Google Play (and web link download for our web store customers).

This latest app update keeps CoPilot moving forward, with new features, FREE updated street maps and greater integration with the Android operating system. We have also made a variety of improvements to the app based on the detailed feedback and ideas you’ve sent us through our forum and social media sites – thank you!

iOS customers: don’t worry, there’s an update coming for you too, but it’s awaiting approval from Apple. And CoPilot GPS customers: relax – you’ll be getting an update soon too!

New in CoPilot Live Premium v9.3:

  • Updated Street Maps: A FREE update to the latest updated high quality NAVTEQ street maps*, including notable new road layouts such as the M74 and Hindhead Tunnel in the UK. How to update your maps? The process is explained here.
  • Android Routing Integration: you are able to select an address within an email and navigate there using CoPilot’s dependable offline in-car guidance
  • Improved real-time traffic: as you know, the CoPilot Live Premium app customers already enjoy 12 months free access to CoPilot’s high quality real-time ActiveTraffic service. The traffic map display and status bar have been redesigned to make it easier to find the best route based on real-time traffic flow
  • Themes: now you are able to choose the way CoPilot looks on your device. We asked you to vote for your favourite colour scheme and they are here! Two themes that received the most votes were Neon Rain and Cherry Pop.
  • Cloud back up: All your favourite locations, settings and pre-planned routes can be backed-up online for easy restore when you move to a new phone
  • Improvements throughout the app: the update also brings a large number of user interface improvements, fixes and performance enhancements based on your feedback including the addition of Google search within the app

Thank you again for your feedback and support – we would love to hear more ideas in our community forum! Also, please do join our Facebook page, add us in your circle in G+ and follow us in Twitter for the latest news and updates. We wish you a wonderful autumn and hope you enjoy our latest version app and the updated maps!

*Note: the free map update will be available via app updates to our CoPilot Live Premium and CoPilot GPS apps for iOS and Android during September and October 2012. The availability of individual apps will vary by region. CoPilot Live v8 customers need to switch to CoPilot GPS in order to get the map update. Excludes CoPilot Truck apps.

    It’s great to see improvements but you could make our day if your licence would allow us to have it on two devices. like mobile and tablet for example. I don’t mind paying few extra quid for that but not worth paying twice for same software.

    Is it possible to change the details of the Roadside Assistance page from the AA to one of the other organisations? If not it would be a welcome feature for the future.

    Posted this in the forums (so can go there to upvote if you agree):

    Why don’t you implement the ability to swipe between different main menu sections? Swiping is so natural on smartphones because they (Android, iOS, WP7) all have swipeable (is that a word?) homescreens. I’m talking about the ‘Go To’, ‘Route’, ‘MyCoPilot’, ‘Settings’ and ‘More’ screens – a left or right swipe could navigate you between them intuitively. We should all stop the car first but let’s face it – some people will insist on doing these things whilst driving. Swiping is massively more easy in this situation (and not) compared to accurately trying to press a small square at the bottom of the screen… (it’s much easier to ‘mis-press’ than ‘mis-swipe’) and therefore this feature might also increase safety as drivers will faff less. No really.

      Totally agree. Design is years behind …
      Google have made some very good design tutorials that’s include swyping and tabs.
