We now update our A-Z maps TWICE A YEAR to keep up with changes. First release is in Spring and the second is in Autumn.

There have been some changes on A-Z maps during 2017. If you have not updated your A-Z maps for a few years, now is the time. A-Z maps update on our Cabbie’s Mate devices come with 3 consecutive free POI updates. This map update is available for 4.3” non BT, 4.3” BT, 5” and the Android 7” units. These can be purchased from our website http://navigationmaster.com/_onlineStore.

2017-18 A-Z new maps and April POI for iOS iPhone – iPad and Android Cabbie’s Mate Apps:

All subscription customers will receive the new 2017-18 A-Z maps and April POI update to their iPhone - iPad or Android phone/tablet automatically, immediately after release, through the App Store and Google Play Store. If your iOS device is set to download automatically, as soon as the update is released the device will download it, but if your device is not set to download automatically, when you open the Cabbie’s Mate app it will say ‘Updates are available’, select ‘Take me there’.

New Trace function for iOS and Android apps:
The new trace function for iOS Cabbie’s Mate app was released in March. Android trace function will be released in April if all goes well.

From now on, new functions will only be developed for the iOS Cabbie’s Mate app. Android operating system always creates too many problems when developing new functions and it’s not as good as the iOS operating system.

New ‘Report a problem’ facility within the iOS Cabbie’s Mate App:
We have added a new function within the iOS Cabbie’s Mate app under the ‘i’ info button. Whenever there is a problem, app related question or help required, please use this function to contact us. When you contact us via this function, it creates an email and automatically includes some device information we need to be able to help you quickly and efficiently. If you are contacting us to resolve a problem, please describe the problem in as much detail as possible. Some customers contact us saying, ‘my app does not work properly’ this is not enough information for us to help them quickly and efficiently.

Soon, we will try to implement this function on our Android Cabbie’s Mate app as well, if possible.

To make sure you receive our response to your email, please add info@navigationmaster.com to your contact list. Otherwise our mails might be deleted by your anti-virus program or go to your junk mail.

Reviewing your Cabbie’s Mate app on the App Store and Google Play Store:
We always appreciate any feedback. Your positive reviews power our development and support teams. It only takes a minute to review and help us make the Cabbie’s Mate app better.

If you wish to comment further or for any suggestions, you can always contact us through our website or through your Cabbie’s Mate app. Thanking you in advance.

Please remember, although the functionality of both iOS and Android Cabbie’s Mate app is same, it performs much better on iPhones and iPads.

Dropping off and collecting your repaired Cabbie’s Mate unit from JVBrights:
When you drop your unit off at JVBrights for repair, please let them know if you will be away for a while or not able to collect when notified. We are more than happy to delay the delivery to suit you, but once we delivered, we expect the drivers to collect within 48 hours. This is to avoid any units going missing or getting damaged while they are at the shop. Repairs are usually completed within 3 working days.

For a device inspection, the set fee is £30. Should your device require physical repair this amount will be included in the repair fee and will not be additional.

For those who are not sure of the location, JVBrights is at 47/51 Gt Suffolk St. SE1 0BS the taxi spare parts shop by the canteen and the petrol station.

A-Z Map or POI updates can be done online at home or at JVBrights (JVBrights will charge additional £5 for POI update and £10 for A-Z map with POI update for their labour).

Advice on Phone or Tablet Preference for Cabbie’s Mate A-Z app
If you are going to purchase a device, our recommendation, based on our experience, would be an iOS device such as the iPhone 6 plus, 6S plus, 7 plus or the iPad. We are better placed to recommend our iOS App as there is only one manufacturer which is Apple and less versions of the operating system to work with. We know that our App works well on iOS. You will need to have a 3G (cellular) iPad for the app to work accurately; you will not need a 3G sim.

Unfortunately we cannot recommend a specific Android device as there are over 18,000 distinct Android devices on the market, device brands and models vary making it difficult for us to predict and recommend which devices and operating systems will be compatible with our app.
