    CoPilot 8 POI installation

    CoPilot 8 satnav software is available for iPhone, Android phones and Windows Mobile phones.

    The software uses the TomTom OV2 format file to load POIs.

    Unless the OP or someone else has had success with this and are able to explain how they did it, this technique is not possible on the iPhone or iPad.

    I stand corrected - another Apple restrictive practice I would suggest

    Usually I would say yes, but I think in this case it is a developer issue...

    from copilot support team

    Thank you for contacting CoPilot Technical Support.

    Unfortunately there is no way to import POI's into the application. Hope you have a good trip and break away at the festivals/wild camping.

    If you have any further questions, or feel that this incident has not been resolved to your satisfaction, please do not hesitate to bring this to our attention.

    Has anyone managed to integrate the poi's into copilt 8 and if yes how did they do it?

    Ive looked a some posts that mentioned copilot uses TomTom ov2 format files.

    I've downloaded DiskAid and had a look at the copilot files on my iphone but cant find any ov2 files so would appreciate some help.

    I don't really want to buy another sat nav program

    Thanks

    Peter

    Managed to intergrate the poi's into my copilot on my iphone

    I downloaded a program onto my pc called DiskAid. This shows the relevent apps on the iphone.

    Then I navigated to uk/uk_ireland/save.

    I then dragged the .ov2 file into the save folder, then dragged the .bmp file (the icon) into the same folder.

    I then started up the sat nav program. It had found the new poi's and it asked me if I wanted to use them (yes). Then it asked me which icon I wanted to use, and gave me lots of options. Unfortunately the .bmp file I had loaded wasn't there, so I just used another one from the list.

    Please see this thread for some icons. http://www.wildcamping.co.uk/forums/...pp-iphone.html

    It's likely that you need to have a 24x24 .png file installed instead of the .bmp if it is using the TomTom format.




    also have a look at this earlier thread.. http://www.wildcamping.co.uk/forums/...es-iphone.html

    To get the files into CoPilot Live is surprisingly easy:

    a) Connect your phone as an external hard drive to your computer. (With Android phones, hook up the USB cable, it should automatically ask if you want to turn on USB storage. It will then show up as an additional drive.)

    b) Go to the \copilot\EU\save folder (or similar)

    c) Copy your .ov2 (and if you have a bmp icon file, the icon is fine) to this directory and disconnect your phone by pressing "Turn Off USB Storage".)

    d) Start up CoPilot Live. It will immediately pop up stating that a new POI set has been found. Click the next arrow (to the right), and you can either select a preexisting category or select "New Category" for really custom POIs and click next.

    e) Select "No" for "are you importing safety camera data?", then click "next".


    PS Works fine for CoPilot Live 9 too.
