CoPilot's maps are stored on the device, which is why you are required to download maps during the initial setup process.
To update maps or add new maps to a device:
- App Store Customers—You will be notified through the app to download updates via WiFi or a cellular network.
- Enterprise Customers (Indirect)—Contact the partner who sold you CoPilot to be sure you have the latest app version and data.
- Enterprise Customers (Direct) and Integration Partners—Updates can be downloaded over the air (via WiFi or a cellular network) by API, by using FleetPortal Mapsets, or through the My Maps screen in CoPilot. Alternatively, maps can be download directly from our portal and installed via MDM.

You can create custom mapsets in FleetPortal and assign those custom sets to only the CoPilot vehicle groups that require those maps. This feature can help save disk space on your devices running CoPilot, and it can reduce the time and wireless data needed to download maps and map updates.
For example, if you have a group that only operates in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, you could create a mapset for just those two states and assign it to that group. Read more about creating mapsets in Fleetportal.
Each time CoPilot launches, or at the FleetPortal Sync Interval set in a Configuration Profile, CoPilot will check whether it has been assigned any mapsets. Depending on whether or not you already have maps on the device, you will see one of two messages:
- Initial download with no maps on the device
- Download of updated mapsets
Mapsets are automatically downloaded in the background of CoPilot. Any existing maps or mapsets on the device will be replaced. When using mapsets, CoPilot will no longer display the MyCoPilot > My Maps feature.
To view which maps are installed on the device, tap Settings > About CoPilot. For example, the device shown below includes maps of Virginia, New Jersey, New York, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.
