We were thrilled to see our CoPilot Live app update was approved by Apple over the weekend—bringing you full support for iPhone 4 and multitasking in iOS4.
Thanks to everyone who contacted us over the weekend! We’d like to respond to a couple of common comment threads we’re seeing:
CoPilot Live does not exit when you press the iPhone ‘Home’ button
One of the key enhancements brought by iOS4 is multitasking – the ability to run more than one application at a time on an iPhone. With CoPilot Live, this enables you to receive navigation guidance while on a phone call or using other apps.
However, as some have pointed out, there might be many instances where you want to exit CoPilot Live rather than continue it running in the background – one of the reasons being to conserve battery power.
CoPilot Live is already designed to switch-off GPS receiving after 10 minutes if a position fix is not detected for 10 minutes or more.
If you would rather exit CoPilot Live completely, you can do so by following these steps:
- Tap the iPhone
- Step 2
“Home” button once (Home button = the main circular button on the front of the phone). CoPilot Live will disappear from the screen.
- Then tap the Home button twice to bring up the multitasking panel. See image.
- Press and hold the CoPilot icon. After a few seconds the icon will begin to wobble.
- Press the minus ‘-‘ ball on the CoPilot icon to close the app completely. See image.
TTS is not working on the 3G model
A number of customers have reported that after updating to the latest version TTS (Text-to-Speech) is not working on their 3G. We are aware of the issue and are looking into why this is occurring on the 3G models right now. We will update you here on the blog as soon as we have more information.
As always, we are reviewing all of the amazing customer feedback you guys give us on a continuous basis. We are doing our best to respond to everyone individually in a timely manner. Please rest assured we are paying attention!
