Copilot 8 Windows 10 compatibility

Copilot 8 (NEW)
I see it is compatible with Windows 7. What about Windows 10?????

I looked at the Copilot site and don't see anything new about CoPilot Live v8. It has been around for several years and the last problem was they didn't upgrade the maps on the laptop version as they do on the Android and Ipad version. That may have changed but I wouldn't count on it.

Should work on Win 10 though.

Windows 10 did not exist when CP8 was made. So I have to preface with that.

However, I have not found a Win10 machine yet that I couldn't get it to work on. If it does not just work natively (which it usually does) then I get it to work by right-clicking the icon then going to "Properties" then to the "Compatibility" tab and setting it to run in Windows 7 or Windows 8 Compatibility mode and it works fine. The larger issue still remains that the maps are out of date on the Windows version though.

So, they have not been releasing map updates on the older versions of CoPilot Laptop even though that is the latest version?

I thought they supposedly kept releasing map updates as long as there was no newer version?

Correct. It's been a while for any version that says "laptop" or "Windows."

I guess that doesn't bode too well... especially considering there's no date on that article.
