You can store maps directly on your device, but you don’t need to download all of the maps at once thanks to our intelligent map management.

*The latest maps are available for your licensed region only. Due to the increasing size of our Europe maps, we had to remove Turkey and Russia from our Europe map region. However, if you have a licence for European maps, Turkey and Russia continue to be available as an individual map region that can be used in conjunction with Europe.

On the Move This Summer – Part 2

Need a map that fits your phone?

So he made sure to download the UK, France and Iberia maps. With CoPilot Caravan they’ll never lose reception plus they can save more money for their adventures instead of a big data bill.

You may be asking yourself, so it’s a nice trip – what’s different here?

Safe, reliable routing is a must-have for campers

Joe and his wife have used other sat-nav apps before but ran into the problem no camper ever wants to have…being routed down a road that is not safe for a caravan or motorhome. It does happen, but it should never happen to you.

How does Joe avoid this? He simply enters the vehicle dimensions into CoPilot Caravan and creates a routing profile specific to his vehicle. Wait, you can put in your exact weight, height and length in CoPilot Caravan? Yep. And you won’t be routed down an unsafe road? Yep.

Every trip you take is a journey and with all the planning – the journey will soon become your destination. Enjoy the adventures, appreciate the time with your family and by the end of it…you’ll be planning the next one. Get CoPilot Caravan and start your next journey!

On the Move This Summer – Part 1

Joe and his family will make their way from London all the way to Portugal’s Algarve, through France and Spain. Sounds like an awesome trip, right?

Trip planning: Where to go?


The one thing they’ve made sure to take care of before leaving is planning their entire trip. All their stops, all their adventures, pre-planned. Wait, you can plan the most epic journey of all time with over 50 stops in ONE app? Yep.

Easily change your route for a well-deserved break from behind the wheel

You might be thinking: What if Joe needs to find a place to rest sooner than the one they planned? Let’s be honest, there are times you need a little break. Well, you can easily find campsites and places to refuel yourself.  This way, the kids won’t be cranky and everyone will stay happy.

Alright…back to the trip planning.

Not only did Joe plug in all their stops but he definitely doesn’t want to get lost when the mobile signal gets spotty. Stay tuned to find out how the journey continued….

 

Size Matters: Customise Your Caravan Routing

We all know that one size doesn’t fit all. That’s why CoPilot Caravan safely calculates your route based on your caravan’s dimensions so you only drive on roads suitable for your caravan size and class.

Here’s how to set up your customised caravan routing profile:

  1. In the main menu, tap Route > Vehicle Routing Profiles
  2. Select Caravan as your vehicle type, tap View/Edit
  3. Choose Caravan Dimensions
  4. You can select from a list of industry standard caravan dimensions or use the ‘Custom size restrictions’ option to enter the Max Height, Max Width, Caravan Length and Total Weight of your Caravan/Motorhome.
  5. Almost done, just enter a name for your caravan profile and save it.

You’re all set. CoPilot Caravan is ready to take you on your next adventure.

Before you hit the road, make sure to check the traffic map by tapping on the traffic bar. The map will outline your route, show you the traffic nearby and display your current delay. If the route is looking too congested for your liking, just tap the Alternate Route option at the bottom of the screen. Incident reports let you know about detours, closed roads and other events as you drive.

Your new CoPilot Caravan App is here!


RV_iconCoPilot
has released a caravan-specific navigation app which offers GPS navigation straight from your smartphone or tablet, without using mobile data at home or abroad.

Designed specifically for caravans, the app calculates your route according to your vehicle size and class (height, weight and length), essential to prevent any dangerous or costly run-ins with low bridges.

Dimensions_RV_UK

Currently, adventurous motorhome owners are buying pricey sat-nav devices (which are prone to theft and often have outdated maps), or using navigation apps which rely on internet access, ducking in and out of signal and getting stung by scary data roaming bills.

HeightRestriction_RV_UK

This app allows you to plan a trip of a lifetime as you can add up to 50 stops to your course, automatically calculating the best route. The route planning and optimisation features also prevent stressful wayward journeys, helping to save time and fuel costs.

MultipleStops_RV_UKEN
