As from July 2016 the Android Cabbie's Mate app has been an annual subscription-based app.
You can unsubscribe at any time but the app will stop working at the end of the paid period.
Android Cabbie’s Mate App is linked to the Google Navigation map, you can switch between A-Z map and Google navigation map. Data required for navigation to work, but no data required for the A-Z to work as long as there is a sim inside a device.
All other new functions developed in the future will only be for iOS devices.
We have two options:
Both options receive 2 map updates a year, in Spring and Autumn
Two map updates and one poi update a year. POI is updated in spring/April together with the map update.
This works out 57 pence a week which we believe it's value for money for what you are getting.
Two map updates and 4 Poi updates a year. We release POI updates in January, April, July and October.
Most customers have selected the premium option.
Updates will come to your phone automatically when released.
Subscription automatically renews annually unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Your account will be charged for renewal. Payment will be charged to your Google Play account at confirmation of purchase. Subscriptions may be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to the user's Account Settings after purchase.
You can have the subscription app on maximum two Android devices at a time as long as you are using the same Google Play ID the App purchased with. If you wish to replace your phone, you will need to reset your licenses via a link on our website. This will allow you to use two devices again.
Non-subscription Cabbie’s Mate app can still be used as usual. You can delete or reinstall by selecting ‘continue’ option on the subscription page.This app cannot be updated with new maps. If you wish to opt in for subscription app, the non-subscription app must be deleted and device must be restarted first. Once the subscription app is installed, you will no longer be able to download the non-subscription app again.
