sorry skippy but traffic is not vapourware it was launched with t-mobile and then with O2 and the orbit bundles came out and was free for 2 years if memory serves correct


But if I buy CoPilot (not bundled with a phone from T-Mobile oe O2) then does traffic work?


it is bundled with operator to my believes because it makes it easier for end user as he doesn't need to pay. if memory serves me correct you can purchase traffic info separately and it costed around 35 pounds for 2 years.

I think it's like Vista - probably worth waiting for but not until the bugs have been ironed out. Since the last update for Copilot 6 it's been working really well, with the only feature missing being the live traffic. That's the one feature that would tempt me into upgrading to version 7, but not until I'm happy that the whole system works properly. That's where the brave ones amongst you lot come in!

Doesn't compare very well with the latest TomTom upgrade price of 29.95 for GB & Ireland or 39.95 for Western Europe (updated application free!)

I've already got CP6 with the European maps and a working traffic news setup, through T-Mobile. 135 to replicate this for CP7 is too much for me.

I might be tempted to upgrade if the new releases is stable, and after they have released an patch that is easy to install. The CP6 process of having to install the original version and the two earlier patches, before you can install the latest patch shows how customer-focussed they are!

The handling traffic news in CP6 is flaky. First of all, they used to rank the incidents by the distance from your current location. Then some bright spark changed it in the last patch so that they are sorted by the road number. Problems on an A road 100 miles away on your route, will be shown on the first screen. If there is a problem on a motorway right next to you, you can have to scroll down the list and onto a second screen.

Yesterday there was a serious accident on my way home. It made sense to avoid a section of road. Although I had the option set to avoid the incident, it was still routing me that way. I took a detour that avoided the section of road with the problem, but then the routing tried to take me away from the rest of the main road, after the place where the incident had been.

To get this sort of problem sorted out needs time and money to spend on development and testing. I don't know that ALK are going to sell enough of CoPilot for it to be worthwhile for them to spend that money.

that to me sounds like the traffic data was wrong and giving to much area on the incident what it was picking up was maybe the knock ondelay

at 135you phone was probably included in that I got teddy_bears cp6 and compact3 for 50 pounds all in on flext

cp7 is major step for ward from cp6 the ui is much easier to use and more intuative than cp6 the mapping is bag uptodate
and that's not taken from the alk press sheet that's from my own experience from use cp7 in the field for a while in my last job and in my current job as a courier

135 is the upfront cost to upgrade (99.99 for the upgrade with European maps and 35 for the traffic news, which apparently costs for CP7 even if you can get it for free with CP6 with T-Mobile).

I've got a T-Mobile MDA Vario. The original contract expired. I'm now on U-Fix 50 with Web 'n' Walk, paying 12.50 a month. Upgrading to a Vario III would be nice, but would cost me ~ 350 more than I'm paying, with the combination of upfront cost and monthly contract. I would get more phone minutes and texts a month, but I don't use many, so it wouldn't save me anything.

If the CP7 upgrade had cost 80, then I would have had to think about it more carefully. At 135, I'll just leave it, and stick with the bugs that I know about.
