CoPilot 7 gets full review treatment

Guest writer Luke Barton has been trialling the new CoPilot 7 satellite navigation system for S60 3rd Edition - here's his full review after using it for several weeks on his Nokia 6110 Navigator. Summary? It has some usablity issues, plus laggy voice instructions, but there are plenty of compensating features which will appeal especially to small businesses.

Read on in the full article.

CoPilot Central

Great review once again

Might be worth mentioning that at present, CoPilot Central does not support a 64bit OS. Could be crucial to someone considering purchasing CoPilot.

Ramzez, I tried all keypresses on the navigation screen, nothing except getting into the menu worked for me. Glitch perhaps?


Logan, thankyou. Perhaps Rafe/Steve will add it in, and its certainly something to consider for any upcoming reviews.

bartmanekul, if you go to Settings>Map and tick Display View Shortcuts you will be able to change view in two presses. Also, I think it may perhaps worth mentioning that CoPilot also supports not only S60 devices, but UIQ devices and new Motorola devices as well.

Ramzez, looks like your right. Dont have the oppertunity to try, I havent been able to activate copilot on my new phone yet.

I admit I didnt think it would do that. Something to look out for on future reviews.

Thanks Krisse! Im trying to use every single feature (although I still miss bits, as ramzez has pointed out) so that people know exactly what they are buying.

It takes an *extremely* long time to go through all that. But, worth it in the end.

Have started on the next one.

Fantastic review, very usefull in helping me decide to get co-pilot,
just a quick note just found out that you can use the volume buttons on the side
of the n95 to control the volume for the program. it was getting very irritating going into settings all the time to change volume,

Good review - I think you've got the strength's weaknesses on the money, it'll be interesting to see what comes out in terms of updates.

You know the only problem I have with it is that if you buy the app from handago then Co-Pilot Central doesn't come with the download.

And if you want to get it - you can but at a cost of 15 GBP :(

Thanks!

Copilot Live & Palm Treo Pro

Don't try and put it on one of these as too many memory issues

Fixing annoying welcome message

To stop the annyoing welcome message close CoPilot and use file explorer to go to the copilot folder on the storage card then open the speech folder and then the folder for your language, e.g. UK English or whatever. Rename the file cpwelcomelive to cpwelcomeliveold. No more annoying welcome message! Applies to CP 6 as well.
