CoPilot Live Premium Australia + NZ GIVEAWAY!

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Upcoming Reviews

Read more: CoPilot Live Premium Australia + NZ GIVEAWAY!We have a number of licenses to give away for the new CoPilot Live Premium Australia which has recently been announced for the Android and iPhone platforms.

I've always been a fan of this great looking navigation program -despite the fact that the maps were rather out of date when CoPilot Live 8 came out a while ago.

Hopefully that has all been fixed but what got me more excited is the Alternate Routing this app can generate for you. Up till now it didn't always create the very best route and to have some alternatives is great!

If you want to get yourself a free license of the new CoPilot Premium for Oz and Nz, send me an email via the Contact Us section of the site.

The first 5 to respond will get a licence if you agree to give me some feedback on your experiences with the program within the next 4 weeks.

I'm looking for a few paragraphs of the Good, the Bad and the iWish points...

Indicate please which you prefer:  either the Android or iPhone version.

The First in the Country: Tegatech TEGA v2 Tablet PC- Upcoming Review

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Upcoming Reviews

Read more: The First in the Country: Tegatech TEGA v2 Tablet PC- Upcoming ReviewWe love it when a manufacturer is building on previous successes and launches a new model that addresses some of the issues we had with the previous one.
Such is the case with the Tegatech TEGA which we reviewed here.
It scored a solid 7/10 but battery life was one issue we highlighted.
The new model is much more attractive compared to the older one with a capacitive multitouch screen, accelerometers for rotation of the screen and a solid five hours battery life. Couple that with Windows 7 and a very svelte body which bodes well for the hands-on testing….
The TEGA tablet also features built-in 3G so connectivity is going to be a cinch.
Let's check a few more of these features in a couple of days time when the machine lands on our desk!
