Our latest iPhone app update has been approved by Apple and is now available for all regions and the European app as a free download from the AppStore.
Based on customer feedback, the update brings you various performance benefits including improved memory usage and the ability to switch-off background location.
You may have installed our previous update which introduced support for iOS4 multi-tasking and background location. However, many customers have discovered that keeping GPS running while using other apps can significantly affect the iPhone’s battery life.
This new update adds a setting that allows you to switch-off background location, so CoPilot Live will immediately stop using the iPhone’s GPS receiver if you leave the app. The moment you go back into CoPilot Live it will connect to GPS again. To switch-off background location in CoPilot Live, simply select Menu > Settings > Background Navigation.
You can of course still close CoPilot Live completely using multi-tasking (accessed by double clicking the iPhone home button).
Thank you for choosing CoPilot Live navigation for your iPhone
