This past weekend I ventured to Boston, MA for a little retreat in the beautiful city.Â Not being very familiar with the city I made sure my CoPilot Live was packedâ€”which is easy to do as itâ€™s conveniently located on my iPhone and fits in my pocket!Â I thought Iâ€™d share a little of my experience with CoPilot Live guiding my way.Â Perhaps youâ€™ll find it useful for your next excursion.
You can pretty much stick to walking when enjoying the sites in Boston, so CoPilot Liveâ€™s walking mode with turn-by-turn directions and pedestrian-specific routing was extremely useful.Â Wherever you stay in Boston, an array of pubs are in walking distance, so I made sure to use the Save Current Location feature at my hotel so I could always find my way back!
One of the must-sees in Boston is the Freedom Trailâ€”a walking tour that leads you through 16 historical sites.Â Â If youâ€™ve never been, I highly recommend it.Â A wonderful benefit of having CoPilot Live along was no matter where I was in the city; I could search and locate anything I needed.Â Â No need to stop and ask for directions.Â This proved useful for a caffeine pit stop mid- tour.Â I used Live Local Search to quickly locate a nearby â€śDunkin Donutsâ€ť (my favorite) and CoPilot Live guided me straight there.Â I had remembered to Save Current Location before I veered off the trail so a quick tap on Favoritesâ€”where the GPS coordinates were storedâ€”and I was back on the trail.
Iâ€™m a sporadic traveler so I didnâ€™t plan a dinner spot ahead of time.Â I searched CoPilot Liveâ€™s immense Points of Interest (POI) database and found a suitable restaurant in the area.Â Being that I was in Boston, I was in the mood for some New England Clam Chowder so I selected â€śSeafoodâ€ť and perused the list of choices.Â After settling on â€śUnion Oyster Houseâ€ť I used CoPilot Live to preview the route, which quickly led me to believe that walking there was not an option!Â So I switched to auto mode, checked my trip time and called directly from within CoPilot Live to make a reservation.Â Â Â
After a short flight back to New Jersey I jumped in my car ready to get home, only to realize I had $1.50 left in my wallet.Â No problem.Â After setting my Destination to Home, I tapped Show Route and in Options selected â€śAlways Avoid Tollsâ€ť.Â Within the hour I was home, with $1.50 still in my wallet and no time spent on the NJ Turnpike!Â
Copilot Live definitely made my journey smoother and most important when it comes to travelingâ€”stress free.Â I couldnâ€™t have asked for a better travel companion (besides my husband of course!)
