from your desktop or laptop computer to your Pocket device. You select the data
to download from one or more regions (“data areas”) that you specify in the
CoPilot Live application on your desktop. It’s a simple 4-step process.
Step 1: Specify Where Data Will Be Stored
To begin the data download process, open the CoPilot Live application on your
desktop/laptop, then click the Data Download Wizard icon or pick Data
Download Wizard from the File menu.
CoPilot Live gives you three options for downloading data:
1) directly to the Pocket device's memory,
2) to a Storage Card in the device, or
3) to a Storage Card through a Storage Card Reader.
You will be prompted to enter one of these choices before you can download.
CoPilot will detect which options are available to you.
NOTE: If there is data stored on the device's memory and also on a
Storage Card in the device, CoPilot will use the map data on the
Storage Card by default. To have it use the device's memory, you must
remove the Storage Card.
1. To download to Pocket PC
Device Memory:
(In this example, CoPilot Live has
detected that there is no Storage
Card in the device.) Click Next to
go to the Data Selection window.
See CoPilot QuickStart, p. 10, for a
description of software included in
downloads. See p. 20 for Options.
2. To download to a Storage
Card in the device:
(In this example, CoPilot Live has
detected that all options are
available.) Select a storage card
name from the drop-down pick
list, then click Next to go to the
Data Selection window. See CoPilot
QuickStart, p. 10, for a description
of software included in downloads. See p. 20 for Options.

3. To download to a Storage
Card through a Card Reader:
(In this example, again all options
are available.) Pick the drive letter
associated with your Storage Card
Reader, then click Next to go to
the Data Selection window. See
CoPilot QuickStart below for a
description of software included in
downloads. See p. 20 for Options.
NOTE: You can also download to a Storage Card through a PCMCIA
adapter. Simply identify the drive letter associated with the adapter under the
Storage Card Reader option.
CoPilot QuickStart
Storage Card Application Download
If you are downloading map data to a Storage Card or Storage Card
Reader, you have the option to download a complete, ready-to-use
“QuickStart” version of CoPilot Live along with the data. Having the
QuckStart version on your Storage Card ensures that CoPilot Live will be
available even if you experience technical problems with your Pocket PC
and need to perform a hard reset. (During a hard reset, all installed
applications are deleted from the Pocket PC.) Inserting a storage card
with the QuickStart version will automatically install CoPilot,
and your map data will already be there!
The QuickStart option can be turned on or off in the final step of the
download process (see p. 19). By default this option is active and
the QuickStart download will be executed each time you
download map data.
The QuickStart needs 10 MB of space on your Storage Card. Once the
QuickStart has been copied, you can save time the next time you
download data by unchecking the Create QuickStart option in the final
Data Download Wizard screen before proceeding to download. You will
also want to uncheck this option if you do not have enough room on your
Storage Card for it.
If the QuickStart is copied onto your Storage Card and you need to
remove it, simply delete the folder that contains it. The folder will be
named either “2577”, “4000”, or “10003” depending on which type of
Pocket PC you are using.

Data Download
Map Area - This method of selecting data allows you to choose an area of data
by drawing a box on the Data Download Wizard's map screen.
Step 2: Choose a Data Selection Method
In the Wizard, you enter a city
name near which you would like
to select data, then click Next.
The map will zoom to that
location. Then you create a
box around the desired area by
clicking and dragging your
mouse across the map. The
street-level data within that box
will be selected.
Map Area
After you specify a location where the data will be stored, you will be prompted
to select a region on the map to download. CoPilot allows you to download
data using one of the three methods described below.
At this point you can zoom
the map in and out using zoom
buttons and adjust the size of
the data area by redrawing
the box.
See Data Download Step 3 beginning on page 13 for step-by-step instructions for
downloading data to your Pocket PC using each of these three methods.
Trip - The Trip method of selecting data is by far the most customizable method.
This option allows you to run a trip and select street-level data specific to that trip,
thereby avoiding unneeded data
and saving valuable memory
space.
City Radius - This method allows you to quickly select data in the shape of a
circle surrounding a city of your choice. In the Data Download Wizard you type
a city name and state abbreviation or postal code and enter the number of
kilometers you would like the
radius to extend around the
city, then click Next.
The Wizard displays a map that
shows the city and the radius
you chose. At this point you
can zoom the map in and out
using zoom buttons and adjust
the size of the data area by
altering the radius of the circle.
City Radius
- 11 -
Once the trip is run, the Data
Download Wizard automatically
selects circles of data around
your origin and destination,
and a corridor of data along
your route. You can then click
Options to adjust the radius of
the circles and the width of the
corridor.
Trip
The Trip Itinerary for each trip
you download will be stored on
your Pocket PC (see Trip
Transfer, p. 20). Multiple trips can
be downloaded to the Pocket
PC for later use.

Data Download
POI Download Options
Step 4: Download the Data
When you download a data region, you’ll get all roads within that region (but not
roads outside the region). Also included with each download are regional points
of interest (POI) such as gas stations, hotels, restaurants, visitor attractions, etc.
When you’re ready to execute a download, the Wizard will display a list of
Available Area(s) for download on the left side of the window. To designate an
area to include in the download, click on it and then click on the right arrow
button to move it to the Data Included in This Download list.
CoPilot Live now lets you control the number and types of points of interest that
get downloaded along with your data areas. You can save space on your Pocket
PC by eliminating categories of POI that you’re not interested in seeing.
To select which POI categories you want, choose POI Download Options from the
Edit menu in the desktop application or, when you first open the Data
Download Wizard, click the Options button in the Wizard. In the window that
opens, check the categories you wish to select. Click the plus sign next to each
category to see the included sub-categories.
Notice that the amount of available map memory and the memory required for
all the areas on the Included list is shown under the list. NOTE: CoPilot's
available memory calculations subtract 15 MB from the available memory on
your storage card (if you are using one) to account for support files.
If you need to move an area off the Included list, click on it and use the left
arrow button. To delete an area from memory, click on it and click Delete.
Click Save Settings to save the set of categories you create. Click Restore
Default to return to CoPilot’s default categories.
IMPORTANT: Each data download overwrites the data that is already
on your Pocket PC. If any data areas listed under Available Areas are
already loaded on your Pocket PC, they will be overwritten by the new
download. Therefore, your download must include all areas that you wish to
have available on your Pocket PC.
Check Include EU Highway Network to download CoPilot’s complete
European Highway Network along with your data. This additional download
requires approximately 49 MB of space on your Pocket PC. When this network
is loaded, major roads, cities, and some points of interest outside your selected
data region will be shown on the map and you’ll be able to receive guidance even
when you drive outside the downloaded data area(s).
Trip Transfer
Check Download Favorites to download your Favorites list from the Trip
Planner window on your dekstop along with map data. These addresses will then
be available as Favorites for trip entry on the Pocket PC.
CoPilot Live now transfers whole trips to your Pocket PC when you use the Trip
option for data downloading. Any trip you create, including its Itinerary, is
automatically downloaded along with the surrounding data corridor and will
become the current trip on your Pocket PC. A .TRP file is created and placed in
the Save directory in the CoPilot installation folder on the Pocket PC. Subsequent
downloads will add more .TRP files to this folder. The number of trips that may
be stored is limited only by the available memory on your Pocket PC.
Uncheck Create QuickStart if you do not want the CoPilot QuickStart
software copied to your Storage Card (see p. 10 for a description of this feature).
If multiple trips are downloaded, the last one to be added will open as the current
trip. Use Open Trip in the pop-up Options menu to open a stored .TRP file.

Importing Custom Places
Editing Custom Places in the Database
CoPilot Live’s Custom Place Import Wizard enables you to import addresses from
your Outlook Contacts database, an Excel file, or text file. (If you are using
another type of database or contact manager, you can export your contacts/
locations to an Excel or text file before importing them into CoPilot Live.)
These points are added to CoPilot’s POI database under the Custom category.
Once they are in the database, they are displayed on maps as pushpins and
included in search results when you search for points of interest on your Pocket
PC or in the Trip Planner window on your desktop/laptop.
After custom places have been added to the database, they can be edited at any
time. Select Manage Custom Places from the Tools menu, then highlight the
custom place you wish to edit, click Edit, and make your changes. Click Apply
when finished.
NOTE: By default, addresses entered as Custom Places are assigned to the
Custom POI category. You can change this assignment at any time by selecting
another Category from the drop-down pick list as you edit.
To access the Wizard, choose Import Custom Places from the Tools menu in
Planning Mode on the desktop, then follow the step-by-step instructions given by
the Wizard.
Use the Data Import Status window to edit any addresses that were not accepted
during the importing process, then click Add to import the final list of addresses.
For more detailed instructions, refer to the CoPilot Live Help Files on your
desktop (Help Contents and Search in the Help menu).

Picking Stops From the Map
To get to the Edit Trip screen from the Guidance screens at any time, tap the
screen anywhere except on the map to display the tool bar, then tap the Edit
Trip button. From here you can edit the current trip or add additional stops.
CoPilot Live enables you to pick a stop off the map when you don’t know the
exact address of your destination. You must be in Planning mode to pick a stop
and name it (choose Planning from the Mode menu). The stop you pick and
name becomes a Favorite, which you can then enter as a destination in any mode.
Now you can tap and hold on any stop to activate a pop-up menu that lets you
delete, map or change the order of stops on your route. This menu also
lets you designate a stop as a “waypoint” (tap Set as Waypoint). Waypoints are
not considered as stops in the Trip Itinerary, their purpose is to guide CoPilot’s
route calculations along roads that you choose. To change a waypoint back to a
stop, choose Set as Stop from the menu. Waypoints appear with “>>” instead
of a stop number on the Going To list.
Also, CoPilot ignores waypoints when calculating the ETA and distance to the
next stop, so waypoints can be used to get the ETA and distance to a stop that is
not your next stop (see Getting ETA’s and Distances below).
1. Choose Planning from the
Mode menu at the bottom of the
screen.
2. In the Edit Trip screen, tap
either Going To or Origin to
identify your location as one or
the other, then click the Pick

Detour Feature
Selective Routing
CoPilot Live’s Detour Feature allows you preview an alternate route before
deciding whether or not to take it. Perfect for situations in which traffic has
suddenly slowed ahead of you, the Detour Feature will generate an alternate
route and tell you exactly how much distance the new route will add to your
trip. You can then make an informed decision about whether you’re better off
driving through the delay or taking the new route.
CoPilot Live allows you to be selective about the roads you take on your trip.
There are two ways to do this: 1) you can customize your Trip Itinerary in
Guidance mode so that CoPilot will avoid certain roads; or 2) you can guide
CoPilot’s route by entering stops as “waypoints”.
1. As you approach a delay,
tap on the black screen
to make the toolbar appear.
2. Tap on the
Detour button to
request a new route.
Avoiding a Road in the Trip Itinerary
3. CoPilot’s voice will tell
you how many kilometers
the new route will add to
your trip, and will begin to
give you new turn
instructions.
1. Switch to the Itinerary screen by tapping on the
View Itinerary button. The Itinerary screen provides a
list of all roads that you will be traveling on if you have
entered at least one destination. Once in the Itinerary
screen, you can edit your route using the Avoid button:
2. Highlight the road to avoid by tapping it
once.
3. Tap the Avoid button,
and CoPilot will calculate a
new route that avoids that
road. You can customize
your trip only once.
4. If you decide to use
the new route, just keep
driving. Your old route
will be displayed in blue for
reference.
5. If you decide
not to use the
new route, tap
the Cancel Detour
button.
To Return to the Original Route:
6. CoPilot will then

Tailoring Your Route Using Waypoints
CoPilot Live lets you customize a route by designating some stops as
“waypoints”. Waypoints appear on the Itinerary but they’re not treated like
stops in Guidance Mode and routing instructions. You can enter a
waypoint along a road you want CoPilot to use, and CoPilot will guide you
through the waypoint along that road toward your destination.

To designate a location as a waypoint, enter it as a stop in the Edit Trip screen.
Tap and hold the location on the Going To list until a menu pops up, then choose
Set as Waypoint. Waypoints appear on the Going To list preceded by “>>” instead
of a stop number. To turn the location into a stop again, repeat and choose Set as
Stop. You can set as many waypoints as you like on a trip; however, CoPilot will
always recognize the last address in the Going To list as a stop.

Modes
CoPilot Live has four modes of operation on the Pocket PC. Tap the pop-up
Mode menu at the bottom of the screen to select Guidance, Navigating,Walking,
or Planning Mode.
Guidance Mode
Tap the Map Tab
to choose between Miles and
Kilometers, and a map display
that always tracks your
position moving upward or
maintains north at the top.
You can also choose Drag
Map mode that lets you use
the stylus to drag the map in
any direction to a desired
location (versus drawing a
box around an area).
Tap the Favorites Tab to open the list of your
Favorite Addresses. You can change the assignment
of your Work or Home address as well as Edit
and Delete One or Delete All addresses.
NOTE: When your favorites list is filled
(50), each new address will replace the
address that has been inactive for the
longest period of time.
In Guidance Mode, you enter
one or more destinations, tap
the View Route button on the
toolbar, and start driving.
This mode provides you with
on-screen spoken driving
directions and other information
relevant to your trip, such as
estimated time of arrival and
distance to the next stop.
To receive driving directions and
other data, you must have a GPS receiver attached to your Pocket PC and the
receiver must be in a good position to receive signals.
Navigating Mode
While in Navigating Mode, CoPilot will track your position as you drive. Unlike in
Guidance Mode, you won’t receive turn instructions or voice prompts. This
tracking feature is an ideal way to see your location on the map if you don’t want
to be distracted by CoPilot’s guidance features.
POI Alert Options
From the Tools menu, select Live and then tap on POIs to set POI reporting
options. When POI Alerts are enabled, CoPilot will alert you to the presence of
points of interest as you approach them. You can set how far away you’ll be
when you receive the alerts and which types of POIs should be reported. You
can also limit alerts to POIs right on your route, or include POIs that are nearby.
Walking Mode
Take CoPilot with you wherever you go! Walking Mode provides an as-the-crowflies distance and direction line to your destination, directions that are perfect for
walking. A GPS receiver must be attached and receiving signals.
Planning Mode
Planning Mode lets you use your Pocket PC as a pre-trip planning tool or easy-touse reference guide. Planning Mode lets you view static maps and directions
without the need for a GPS receiver. Trip itineraries you create in Planning Mode
can be saved and then loaded in any mode at a later time.

Pocket PC Setup
CoPilot Live Communications
NOTE: The functionality described on the following pages is not included with the
generic out-of-the-box version of CoPilot Live. To use it you will need to purchase
an update license from your dealer. Then on your Pocket PC go to CoPilot’s Tools
menu, select Update License/activate, and input your new activation code.
Under Tools > Live tap the
Messenger tab. From here you can
toggle messaging on or off and specify
how often data is transferred.
CoPilot Live now allows you to maintain two-way communication with drivers who
are using CoPilot and to actually see where they are currently located using your
home or office PC.
Depending on the plan offered by your
wireless data service provider, sending
less data at infrequent intervals will be
more cost-effective.
Using this CoPilot Live functionality requires the following:
1) CoPilot Live open on your home or office PC. Your PC must be
connected to the internet.
2) CoPilot Live running in the vehicle. Your Pocket PC must have a wireless
internet connection. (Visit our website at www.alk.com/cp4 for a list of
recommended hardware configurations.)
To begin using CoPilot Live functionality on your desktop, click the Live icon on
the sidebar to the left of the map. The upper portion of the new pane that opens
is the Vehicle List. Your connection to the CoPilot Live network is displayed
above the Vehicle List. The login ID of the driver is displayed on the Vehicle List, with
columns for the vehicle's next stop, ETA, speed, location, and time of last update.
To see all columns, expand the pane by placing the cursor on the right edge until it
becomes an arrow and dragging.
Tapping on the Login tab will give you
the ability to change your screen name
as it appears on the home/office PC.
Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL)
Below the Vehicle List is the Message Center. The text of sent and received
messages will appear here.
NOTE: All of CoPilot Live's communications are done in real-time. This means
information is only transferred when the driver in the vehicle and a user on a
home/office PC are using CoPilot Live at the same time. In this sense CoPilot Live
communication is similar to using a telephone - communication only occurs when
both parties are on at the same time.
ALK does not actively log a driver's location information, nor do we use this
information for any purpose other than to transfer it to a home/office user.
On your desktop CoPilot Live tracks the location of the driver. Double-clicking
the vehicle in the Vehicle List will center the map on the driver's last reported
location. The vehicle location updates at an interval specified by the driver on his
Pocket PC (see Pocket PC Set Up, above) as long as both you and the driver are
running CoPilot Live.

CoPilot Live Traffic Reporting
2.
In addition to providing pre-trip planning and GPS route guidance capabilities,
CoPilot Live uses wireless communications to automatically send real-time
information to drivers, notifying them of traffic incidents along the route ahead
and potential alternate routes. As soon as the user selects a destination, CoPilot
will provide dynamic driving directions and regularly updated traffic incident
reports.
Next, select the Traffic tab from the
bottom of the screen. Tap on the radio
buttons to enable or disable real-time
traffic features (see below).
Get Incidents: Users can configure CoPilot's
real-time traffic retrieval as follows:
When you use CoPilot Live in Guidance Mode, you will be provided with regularly
updated traffic incident reports and alternate routes based on the user's
destination and route ahead. (Note that in Guidance Mode, CoPilot must have
GPS acquisition, a user-inputted destination, and Internet access in order to
provide real-time traffic information.)
In Planning Mode, CoPilot Live provides regularly updated traffic incident reports
and alternate routes based on the user's origin, destination, and associated
route. This can be quite useful as it enables you, for example, to review traffic
conditions specific to your planned routes before even entering your vehicle!
(Note that in Planning Mode CoPilot must have a user-inputted origin, destination,
and Internet access in order to provide real-time traffic information.)
Live Traffic in Guidance Mode
Begin by launching CoPilot Live on your Pocket PC (select it from the Start
menu). Please see Using Your Pocket PC for Guidance beginning on p. 25 to learn
how to use CoPilot's GPS navigation and route guidance capabilities.
Never - Never attempt to retrieve traffic
incidents
Always - Always attempt to retrieve traffic
incidents (both when planning trips as
well as driving)
Guidance Only - Retrieve traffic incidents
only when in Guidance Mode.
Default Incident Action:
Selecting Avoid for the Default Incident Action will cause CoPilot to automatically calculate routes that avoid the traffic ahead (hands-free), though the
system will provide the option for you to manually ignore traffic incidents each
time they are reported. If you leave this option unchecked, CoPilot calculates
'standard' routes that ignore traffic, though the system will provide you with the
option to manually avoid individual incidents as they are reported. The handsfree re-routing will occur after x seconds, as specified in the Incident Notification
Timer setting.
Speak Incidents:
Users can configure CoPilot Live's traffic incident voice prompts as follows:
Never - Never speak traffic accidents
Always - Always speak traffic incidents (both when planning trips and driving)
Guidance Only - Speak traffic incidents only in Guidance Mode.
Traffic Options
Instant Notification Timer:
Select your desired Incident Notification Timer setting for the number of seconds
that incident reports will be displayed before automatically taking [avoid\ignore]

Traffic Report
Traffic Report Content
Whether automatically provided by CoPilot or
manually requested by the user, detailed traffic
incident information is conveyed in the Traffic
Report.
Provided that CoPilot Live has GPS acquisition, a user-inputted destination, and
access to the Internet, it will provide regularly updated traffic incident reports in
Guidance Mode. As soon as the user selects a destination, CoPilot begins
providing dynamic driving directions as well as regularly updated incident reports
that include traffic incidents along the route ahead as well as potential alternate
routes.
NOTE: In Planning Mode CoPilot Live requires a user-inputted origin, destination,
and access to the Internet. As soon as the user runs a trip, CoPilot will provide
maps, an itinerary and updated traffic reports and potential alternate routes. The
screen shots below are taken in Guidance Mode; the same functionality exists in
Planning Mode, except that all of the following features are accessed via the
Itinerary screen.
Incident severity is indicated by the colored bar
at the top of the screen. See Traffic Icon Display,
p. 74, for an explanation of the four colors and
their corresponding severity levels.
CoPilot details the number of traffic incidents
detected, the particular incident being
referenced, and the distance from your current
location or inputted origin to that incident.
Please see Traffic Options, p. 71-72, to configure CoPilot's traffic settings.
Check Traffic
In addition to providing automatic traffic reports,
CoPilot also allows users to manually check
traffic on the route ahead. To manually check
traffic, select Check Traffic from CoPilot's Tools
menu.
Incident Status
To the left of the incident number display, CoPilot's incident status icon details
the status of the current traffic incident being reported (incident 1 of 2 in the
example above).
New, unevaluated traffic incident
Traffic incident being ignored (not being circumvented in CoPilot's
route)
Traffic incident being avoided in CoPilot's route
NOTE: CoPilot also verbally announces the current incident status when
displaying the Traffic Report.
ReviewTraffic
Users can also review previous traffic reports by
selecting Review Traffic from CoPilot's Tools
menu.
Avoid / Ignore Button
In the bottom center of the Traffic Report are Avoid and Ignore buttons. When
a new, unevaluated traffic incident is reported, CoPilot displays the option that is
the opposite of your default traffic routing preference.
If, for example, you have configured CoPilot to automatically route around traffic,
the Ignore button is displayed in the Traffic Report for a new, unevaluated traffic
incident.
The Avoid button, in contrast, is displayed for unevaluated incidents when your
default preference is not to automatically route around traffic. The reason for
- 75 -
- 76 -
this is as follows: provided that you do not tap on the Traffic Report screen, the
screen will automatically close after the number of seconds specified in the
Incident Notification Timer setting. When the Traffic Report automatically closes,
CoPilot assumes your default traffic routing preference, which is either to
automatically route around traffic or to ignore it.
You can accept (Yes) or reject (No) the new
route.
If you tap No, all reported incidents are ignored.
NOTE: CoPilot automatically accepts the new
route after the time specified in the Incident
Notification Timer has passed without user
interaction.
CoPilot has been carefully designed so that lone drivers can enjoy the tremendous benefits of real-time traffic routing in a safe, hands-free environment. The
Avoid/Ignore buttons, however, provide users with the option to manually force
the non-default traffic routing preference:
In this example, the current traffic incident has
not yet been evaluated, and the user's default
traffic routing preference is to ignore incidents.
The user could tap Avoid to avoid the incident
or wait for CoPilot to automatically ignore the
incident after the time specified in the Incident
Notification Timer.
NOTE Also: The Incident Notification Timer
is not active when the user reviews previously
detected traffic incidents by selecting Review
Traffic from CoPilot’s Tools menu.
Example 2:
In this example, the user's default routing
preference is configured to automatically route
around traffic.
This time, however, the user taps the first Traffic
Report, which stops the Incident Notification
Timer countdown.
Traffic Routing
CoPilot often simultaneously reports multiple incidents; the diagrams below
illustrate how the solution handles multiple incident traffic routing.
Example 1:
In this example, your default routing preference
is configured to automatically route around
traffic. You do not tap on the Traffic Report.
As a result, CoPilot automatically sets the first
incident to Avoid and presents resulting ETA and
mileage changes in the Route Summary Screen.
NOTE: If at any point you tap the close button
in the upper right corner, the Traffic Report will
close, and all incidents will remain unevaluated.
As a result the Traffic Report remains open until
the user either:
1) Taps the close button (traffic report window
closes, and all incidents remain unevaluated)
2) Taps the forward arrow button (incident 1 set
to avoid, and traffic report progresses to
incident 2)
3) Taps the Ignore button (incident 1 set to
ignore, and traffic report progresses to
incident 2)
- 77 -
- 78 -
Provided that the close button is not tapped, the
user then progresses to the Route Summary
Screen by tapping either the forward arrow or
the Ignore button.
Live Traffic in Planning Mode
CoPilot then presents resulting ETA and mileage
changes in the Route Summary Screen.
In Planning Mode CoPilot Live provides regularly updated traffic incident reports
and alternate routes based on the user's origin, destination, and associated route.
This can be quite useful as it enables users, for example, to review traffic
conditions specific to their planned routes before even entering their vehicles!
NOTE: You can scroll back to previous
incidents by tapping the backward arrow button.
NOTE Also: If an incident is ignored, the
button will change to Avoid when revisited using
the backward arrow button or the Review Traffic
command from the Tools menu.
Please see Trip Planning on your Pocket PC, p. 48, to learn how to use CoPilot Live's
pre-trip planning capabilities.
All traffic features, options and displays are the same in Planning Mode and
Guidance Mode except where noted in the previous sections that describe the
real-time traffic functionality.
In Planning Mode, you also have the option to save/open trips on your Pocket PC
so that you can quickly check traffic conditions on a favorite route without having
to re-enter addresses each time. See p. 49.
Clear Traffic
NOTE: In Planning Mode CoPilot Live must have a user-inputted origin,
destination, and Internet access in order to provide real-time traffic information.
All reported traffic incidents can be reset to the
unevaluated state at any time by selecting Clear
Traffic from CoPilot's Tools menu.

Helpful Hints
Installation
Your Product Key Code can be found on the cover of your printed Quick Start.
One-Touch Access to CoPilot
You can program one of the buttons on your Pocket PC for one-touch
access to CoPilot Live. Select Settings from the Start menu, click the
Buttons icon, highlight the button you would like to program by clicking
on it, and select CoPilot Live from the drop-down Button assignment: menu.
In future uses pressing the assigned button will immediately launch CoPilot.
How CoPilot Live Uses GPS
CoPilot Live uses the GPS positional data that it receives from the hardware unit
you place on your dashboard to display your current position on a map as you
drive. This is called "tracking". CoPilot also uses the GPS data it receives to
guide you along your planned route, provided you enter a destination on your
Pocket PC. CoPilot Live guides you with audible prompts as you drive as well as
on-screen directions.
Tracking will begin automatically when you have satellite reception. In order to
get route guidance you have to enter a destination on your Pocket PC. Tracking
may also be used without receiving guidance instructions when you’re in
Navigating Mode. In this case, you'll see your trip tracked on the map on your
Pocket PC as you drive, but you won't see a highlighted route on the map and
you won't be given driving directions.
GPS Tracks
1. CoPilot Live will automatically track your trips, and save them as .gps files
which you can play back at any time to review a route. You can save memory
space by emptying this folder occasionally and transferring the files to a folder
on your desktop PC that is not synchronized with your mobile device.
To do this connect your Pocket PC to your desktop, select Explore
from the drop-down File menu in ActiveSync, go into the GPS Tracks folder,
and transfer these files to another folder on your hard drive.
1a.These files are also helpful to us. Occasionally, please take these files,
Zip them, and send them to ccptrax@alk.com. Or, open CoPilot on your
desktop PC while your Pocket PC is connected and select E-mail tracks to Club
CoPilot from the GPS menu. Using your GPS tracks we will be able to enhance
the street-level system to provide even more accurate map data with each new
release.
About GPS Technology
The Global Positioning System (GPS), developed by the U.S. Department
of Defense, is a constellation of 24 satellites that orbit the Earth twice daily.
Each satellite contains an atomic clock that is accurate to the nanosecond, and
constantly emitting radio waves toward Earth. GPS sensors (hardware devices
for receiving data) can receive these signals from the satellites, and using their
own internal clock can calculate the amount of time it has taken for the signal to
be received. GPS relies on the fact that radio waves travel at the speed of light
to calculate distances, and the exact location of the sensor is figured by
combining the data received from four satellites. Using the data from these
four satellites, GPS is able to give you the latitude, longitude and elevation of
your present location, and also your road speed and direction of travel on a
route. Given the right conditions, a GPS sensor can identify your geographic
position anywhere in the world within a matter of a few meters.
- 81 -
GPS Accuracy
The GPS signal CoPilot Live receives from the constellation of satellites
has a rated accuracy of within 5 - 10 meters. This means that 95% of the time
the reported location is within 15 - 30 feet of your exact position. CoPilot takes
this location information and enhances it further by "snapping" it to our street
and highway network. Occasionally, CoPilot will place you on the wrong road. If
this occurs, keep driving and CoPilot will automatically correct itself and find your
proper position.
At times, CoPilot Live's GPS tracking will be less accurate or fail to work at all
because the unit is unable to receive satellite signals. Heavy foliage, tall buildings,
or any other structures obstructing communications will interfere with CoPilot's
ability to track your location. Like your car radio, GPS tracking can also be affected by weather conditions if severe. CoPilot Live will continue tracking as soon as
adequate signals are available. Despite these limitations, you can expect CoPilot
Live to provide you with useable and accurate information most of the time.
CoPilot Live will alert you if accurate information is unavailable.

Trouble-shooting
Using Help Files
Why can't I get a satellite reading the first time I use CoPilot Live?
CoPilot Live provides extensive Help Files, available on your desktop/laptop and
your Pocket PC, to guide you through the program as you use it.
The first time the GPS receiver is used it may take approximately 5 minutes to
acquire a signal (but may take as long as 15 minutes). You can minimize this time
by remaining stationary and positioning the GPS receiver so that it has a clear
view of the southern sky. Once initialized, the unit should acquire satellite signals
in 40 seconds or less in the future.
How can I speed up satellite acquisition?
Be sure that the GPS receiver has an unobstructed view of the sky. Trees,
buildings, and other obstacles are capable of blocking the satellite signals. You
might also want to purchase an active external antenna from your CoPilot
supplier to speed up GPS acquisition.
To access Help on your Pocket PC, once the CoPilot Live application is launched,
tap the Tools pop-up menu at the bottom of the screen and select Help.
Click on the Help button in any window in the desktop application to open a
Help topic that describes how to use that window. For example, if you're
searching for points of interest in the Trip Planner window, the Help button will
open Help at the topic Finding Points of Interest. From there, you can navigate
through other topics, or do a search on a topic using the Search tab.
Another way to access the Help Files on your desktop is through the Help menu.
Contents and Search will open Help at the Table of Contents, which displays the
main topics available. Topic Search opens the Search tab.
In the drive screen on my Pocket PC I am receiving turn-bby-tturn instructions in the black
box, but my CoPilot Live is not speaking. Why is that?
CoPilot Live provides voice prompts each time you come up on your next turn.
In order to hear these prompts you need to be sure the volume on your Pocket
PC is turned all the way up. On the Pocket PC in the Start menu go to Settings,
and click on Sounds & Reminders. Under System volume move the slide bar all the
way to the right.
You can also use your Pocket PC’s keypad to adjust the volume. Tap up to
increase the volume, tap down to decrease it.
Will CoPilot Live work with a GPS receiver that is not made by ALK Technologies?
