With summer in full swing, it’s the perfect time to take a road trip with friends and family. There are some wonderful outdoor concerts, amusement parks, festivals and sporting events to enjoy. Although, if you’re on the East Coast like us, make sure you pack lots of water and a hat or umbrella. We’re in the middle of a heat wave and it looks like we’re in for triple-digit temperatures over the next few days!
Nowadays your closest friends and family may not live just down the street, or even in the same town.
With CoPilot Live navigating your road trip, picking up everyone is one less thing you need to worry about. With the handy Multiple Stops feature, you can plan the journey to your ultimate destination with pick up points along the way—so nobody needs to miss the excursion. And with the ability to enter more than 20 stops or waypoints and optimize the route for the most efficient way to go, it may be time to hire the stretch limo after all…
Here’s how to create a multi-stop trip (CoPilot Live 7 and v8 users ):
- Within your CoPilot Live, go to Menu > Plan or Edit Trip > Add Stop (see screenshot below)
- Choose the destination entry method from the menu selection and repeat process until all stops have been added
- Once all your stops are loaded, you can optimize to find the best route by tapping Options > Optimize Stops (see screenshot below)
If you prefer to manually reorder your route for the journey (in case you would rather not have your cousin that sings along to EVERY song on the radio in the front seat) simply tap the ‘stop’ you want to move and use the arrows on the left hand side to move the position of the stop up (or in this case down!) within the journey profile.
Have a great time, stay cool and remember the sunblock!
