Unlock CoPilot’s Next Generation App Features – Part 1

Unlock CoPilot’s Next Generation v10 App Features. Find out the best tips & tricks to plan the perfect route, beat traffic and much more:

Detailed traffic map

A better way with the least delay: Plan a route > tap on the traffic bar on the right side and you will see a traffic map of the area surrounding your route. The streets on the map are colour-coded:

  • Green = you’re good to go
  • Orange = expect some minor delays
  • Red = severe traffic

If you see a traffic warning triangle on the map, tap on the symbol and you will get a detailed description of the traffic incident, for example lane closure, accident,…Tap on alternate route to see if there is a better route available.

Quick directions and safety view

If you would like to concentrate on voice directions and simple turn directions instead of 2D or 3D maps, tap on the street name in the drive window and you will have the option between directions and safety view.

Search online

Additionally to CoPilot’s offline search, if you have your data or WIFI activated, you can search for places online. Tap on the search icon, select Search online and enter a keyword, for example “Pizza”. The search results powered by Yelp will then show you a list of relevant places nearby. And the best part: The search results appear together with a Yelp rating, so say goodbye to underwhelming hotel or restaurant experiences.
