When Getting On-site is Only Part of the Journey


In these days of GPS, navigating public highways is a straightforward process. Load up your itinerary, optimize your route and off you go. But what if your stop off point doesn’t seem to exist? This could be due to private roads.

International airports, oil fields, large scale building projects and military bases will often have an extensive private road network not featured in standard GPS mapping applications. And all of them will have frequent requirements for pickups and deliveries.

While local drivers may know the site location drop off points, it can become a headache when the route is being driven for the first time or by a new driver. CoPilot navigation can help to ease this issue by recording the exact location for future use. CoPilot uses Latitude and Longitude coordinates for precise location recall, so that any driver can find the location at a future point.

Recording the exact location can also prove useful on public roads when a delivery location may not necessarily be at the front of the destination point. A loading bay at the back of a department store for example. Why not improve your drive with saving exact location points?

How to save an exact location in CoPilot:

From the main menu, select ‘Plan Trip’ then ‘Current Location’. Then provide a name for the location so that it can be selected as a destination for future use.
