We are delighted to announce that Premium Live services (real-time traffic and fuel prices) are now available to purchase for CoPilot Live v8 Windows Mobile and Android. In addition, Text to Speech voice directions (TTS) are also now available for v8 Windows Mobile.
It’s taken us longer than we originally anticipated to launch these premium services for Windows Mobile, and we really appreciate your patience while we have prepared them for launch.
Premium Live Services
Available as a 12 month subscription for £19.99, our Premium Live Services give you seamless access to constantly updated information about traffic conditions on your route, as well as real-time petrol prices at nearby filling stations:
- Real-time information about traffic congestion and problems on your route. CoPilot Live v8’s premium traffic service can help you to avoid stressful delays and keep you constantly informed about conditions throughout your journey.
Live Fuel prices
- Now you can check for the lowest petrol prices nearby your location, directly from within CoPilot Live v8
CoPilot Live v8 Windows Mobile and Android customers can buy our premium Live services upgrade using the latest version of CoPilot Central 2.0 desktop companion software, or alternatively online at the CoPilot Live e-store. You can download and install the latest version of CoPilot Central 2.0 here. CoPilot Live v8 iPhone customers can purchase Premium Live services via in-app purchase.
Now v8 Windows Mobile customers can enjoy more detailed turn instructions using the latest Text-To-Speech (TTS) voice guidance technology. TTS pronounces full street names. For example ‘Turn left on Pall Mall’.
TTS is available to purchase through the latest version of CoPilot Central for a one-off payment of £3.59. Text to Speech requires the latest version of CoPilot Live v8 navigation software for Windows Mobile: (version 220.127.116.110 or later)
If you have an older version of CoPilot Live v8 software you can update it to the latest version for free using the latest version of CoPilot Central 2.0 available here.
Important note for HTC HD2 customers: Premium Live Services and TTS are not currently compatible with the custom version of CoPilot Live v8 that is pre-installed on the HTC HD2. We do hope to be able to make Premium Live Services available for the pre-installed version of v8 for HD2 in the future via www.copilotlive.com/htc
What about Text To Speech for Android smartphones? Most new android smartphones (platform 1.6 and above), include TTS as a free feature within the operating system itself – so you simply don’t need to purchase CoPilot TTS. Simply switch on TTS on your phone as follows: go to Settings > Speech Synthesis. Follow the on-screen instructions to set up your Text to speech options. Text To Speech voice will then be used as standard when you use Copilot.
Text to Speech for iPhone: iPhone users can purchase TTS via in-app purchase
