World Backup Day Reminds Us of the Importance of Saving It All

Everyone can relate to that anxious feeling you get after losing or misplacing an important belonging. Now what about losing valuable data from your mobile phone, tablet, or essential software? Not everyone takes the time to backup and save that information in case of an accident. Fortunately for you and your data, today March 31st , is World Backup Day, so we’re giving you a friendly reminder!

Although many people will use today as a day to save their photos, contact lists, email, and the like, you should also consider taking the time to backup your PC*MILER software as well as the navigation data you’ve entered in your CoPilot app.

CoPilot users benefit from the CoPilot Cloud feature, which will automatically backup data, such as subscriptions, favorite places or maps. Not only will it save your information for you if you lose your device, but it also makes it possible to restore it if you choose to upgrade to another CoPilot version. Follow these step-by-step instructions to back up your CoPilot navigation app.


Within PC*MILER there are several customization files that you should consider backing up like your geofences, default routing options and road speeds. You have the choice of backing up specific files or you may also wish to backup the whole install directory. It’s as easy as highlighting and copying the files you want saved and pasting them into another location of your choice, such as a new folder or a different network drive.
