CoPilot Premium and GPS give you millions of POIs with search powered by Yelp, Google and Wikipedia. But if you’re in the mood for something specific, we can help with that too. The biggest football event is upon us and if you’re simple peasants like us, you couldn’t shell out thousands upon thousands to sit in the nosebleeds at Met Life Stadium. The next best thing of course is heading to a bar to partake in some good ol’ fashioned wing eating. Only want to see restaurants on your route? Here’s how to change the POIs that show up on your map.
Go to Settings inside your CoPilot app
Then select Map Display
Choose Show POIs on Map
Click on Currently Displayed POIs and select the category of your choice

Here in the US, it seems like Windows Phone still has a lot of work to do to catch up with more smartphone users. The Nokia Lumia 1520 is a big, bold statement from Microsoft and Nokia that should help them offer users another option when searching for the perfect device.

Winter activities are hot and heavy right now as people revisit their favorite resorts to hit the fresh powder. But let’s be real- hitting the slopes isn’t for everyone. If you’re not interested in wearing 10 layers of clothes to gracelessly fall down a mountain- you can still enjoy a weekend getaway with your ski-loving friends! Navigate with CoPilot to one of these fun places where the night life is just as exciting as the snow park.

Martin Luther King, one of the most prominent peace-lovers of our time, is given his own national holiday in hopes that people will spend the day doing charitable work in his honor.
Fun fact: There are over 600 cities in the US that have a street named after Martin Luther King including Austin, Philadelphia, Houston, Baltimore, Charlotte and Miami. That means you should be very specific when you type that street name into CoPilot! Here’s a few with some pretty cool back stories:
Chicago: First city in the US to name a road after the revered reverend. Today, Martin Luther King Jr. Drive features a Tribute to the Great Northern Migration and a Victory Monument for the Eighth Regiment.
San Fransisco: Martin Luther King Drive is one of two roads that run virtually the entire length of the Golden Gate Bridge
New York City: The famous Apollo Theater resides on Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard.
Saint Paul, Minnesota: The street running in front of the state capitol is named after MLK.
And of course, MLK Drive King’s hometown of Atlanta is a major tourist attraction and just a stone throw away from his alma mater, Morehouse College.
How many MLK streets have you visited? Let us know in the comments!
The country has been experiencing record lows from coast to coast and if you’ve noticed your smartphone or tablet acting funny – it’s not all in your head.
MikroPC tested 15 smartphones against the elements and found that iPhone was the first to die at 14 degrees while the Samsung Galaxy SII held out until -31 degrees.
They created a great infographic to show which model freezes at which temperature. Find out yours here.
Your battery and screen are affected by the cold which can make your battery drop at alarming rates or just shut off completely. According to the Toronto Global News, you should never try to turn your phone on in the extreme cold.
To keep your device from freezing, follow these simple steps.
1. Keep it close to you – Let your phone absorb the heat from your body to keep it from reaching dangerously low temperatures.
2. Put a
ring case on it- Cases like LifeProof or Otterbox can help to keep the phone from acquiring liquid condensation which may happen if the phone is turned on too quickly after being exposed to cold weather.
3. Charge before you go- Getting your phone to 100% before stepping outside will preserve it for the inevitable battery drain the cold air will bring.
4. Don’t leave it in the car – Once CoPilot has navigated you to your destination, make sure to take your device inside with you! Leaving it inside a cold car can cause internal and external damage.
And if all else fails, just head for warmer climates! Our holiday sale is still on until January 14th. We can help you find a warm place to wait out the cold temperatures.
Safe (and warm) travels!
It’s 2014 and we have a feeling that this is the year that you’ll finally be keeping that ambitious resolution you’ve sworn to on the 1st! If you’ve got Copilot (and if you haven’t – what are you waiting for? It’s on sale right now!) then you’ve already got a great head start.
Here’s how CoPilot can help with some of the most popular NYRs:
Lose Weight/Get in Shape:
Every January, gym owners see a surge in memberships as people resolve to start working out more. There’s a way to make sure you can make time for the gym with our Trip Optimization feature. It’s easy to make excuses for being too busy to make it for your work out but if you use this feature to plan your day, you’ll find time you never knew you had!
Be Less Stressed:
We all could use a little more R&R and find ways to minimize our daily stress. With ActiveTraffic, we’re taking the rage you normally reserve for the road and creating a better commute.
Unplug & Spend More Time with Family:
Our technology habits are tricky and often we find it hard to not constantly be checking email or social media. CoPilot can help you curb your habit- especially while in the car. Our new Motion Lock feature will disable you from checking your phone and soon you’ll get used to focusing on things other than your device.
Along with budgeting, CoPilot can help you save money specifically on your data plan. With our Data Usage feature, you can save on your monthly cell plan by choosing how our app uses your limited data.
Travel to New Places:
…do we really need to explain? With all of the map regions available with CoPilot, this one should be a breeze.
Whatever you choose to do, we hope 2014 is happy, healthy and fun. Safe travels this year!
