These have not had good reviews

for example...''Yet again the rollout of the latest upgrade has been shambolic, as lots of Owners have not had their "Christmas Present" free map upgrade, as promised. How difficult is it for a Company that specialises in providing SatNav Applications to provide something as simple as map updates. The Answer - obviously TOO dificult. !

The USA version got slated and eventually dropped to about £2 I think. So I would wait a bit longer.

And don't forget, Google Maps are still free and many people with android use them by choice.

Heat added. iPhone version £19.99 but listening to the apple haters we can afford if.
I have this app, I dont use it alot but I do find it good. Its much cheaper than buying a dedicated sat nav. Heat.
i have this one and it is good better than garmin i used to had

I use this (but got it from a torrent, and downloaded the latest maps through the app)

It's great
Is there any reason to buy something like this over the standard Google sat-nav?

Genuine question! I have a Galaxy S2.

Only if you are not paying for data calls or have unlimited data package.

Google maps continuously use data, as all the maps are online rather than in your memory card or phone storage.
Looks like a good sat nav app for the Galaxy S WiFI 5 Player. Thanks.

TBH, I've been using this for about a yr and a half (version 8 I think) and not had any problems.
Does this use up your data allowance?

Thanks
The price in the OP needs to be updated to £19.99 - the quoted price of £16.66 is excl. VAT.

Only the download of the App will. Using it will only use the GPS of your phone.

Also I've heard this is well worth the standard £20, well that's according to the Android Magazine. For me I find the standard free app good enough for the few times I need a Sat Nav.

the main difference is that GM uses internet to get the maps, not very useful for say if you are in france like i found out the hard way.

this only uses GPS which can be a life saver if there is no internet coverage
Kudos moneysaver9988, you saved me typing the same text, although yours was more diplomatic than mine would have been.

Still quite a good deal though - I've bought it!
I have this and I really wouldn't recommend it. It has a tendancy to lock up, the UI is really cumbersome and confusing and the maps are out of date (on a desireHD). Worst of all though is co pilots "support". I've used it twice and it was dire.
If you use co pilot live (live traffic updates, and I do) it will use data. The map packs are all paid for as well and really need wifi to download as they're fairly large.

Read some of the user comments on google market or online over any magazine "review" if you want some insight. It just seems to fail when you need it most, whether that's looking up an address it doesn't know (even though its been there for hundreds of years) or it just freezes during navigation

I would dispute that. To be a "thieving scumbag", I would need to be a thief, and specifically for the purposes of this point, I would needed to have stolen the software.

According to the Theft Act 1968, I have not stolen anything.

Can you point me to a court case where an individual has been convicted of theft for downloading software/music/movies?

I take it that your answer is "No".

I don't suppose you have ever downloaded anything, no music, no pron, no games, no nothing, I bet you're a total angel, who has never driven above the speed limit, and never ever parked on a double yellow line.{sarc.}

Keep you're holier than thou, hypocritical opinions and personal insults to yourself.

Great price, been using it for over 1 year on my Win6.5 phone.

Deos anyone know if I buy this on my Asus Transformer, could I also install on my other Android phone as well please?

Thanks & heat added.
I thought this was the normal price for UK and IE. I've had the Europe version from launch and paid, I think, £25-£30 On the whole very happy with it with the one exception while driving in France and it told me it couldn't check the license and stopped working until I found a wifi hotspot.
Well said Punkstoner!

I have used CoPilot on various Android devices since 2009 and used it often. For me it is fantastic. Yes, it has got me lost once or twice, but so did my TomTom. 99% of the time though it's totally reliable.
The Google sat nav is a nice freebie, and integrates well with the web search, but ultimately if you drive into a remote area with no 3G signal then you are on your own. At least CoPilot is always there regardless of signal.

Yes like travelling through the countryside like i do quite often and i have lost signal on my phone endless amount of times. At least with gps there's no problems.
At the risk of treading over old ground, there is a free off-line satnav on android called Navfree.
As I only use satnav once in a while, I guess I'm not the one to review navfree, but I have used it for at least 15 journeys without a hitch.
The maps are stored on the sd card, & are updated every two months.
Worth a look if you only need a satnav now & then & want one which can be used off-line.
I have this on my iphone. I haven't had any problems and prefer it to my old Garmin
I have this and wouldnt recommend after having for free too, keeps locking up on samsung galaxy s on gingerbread. Pauses as if lost gps so you restart phone and as you're moving now quite close to destination you end up messing about trying to sort that last bit.

Now using SYGIC. Would recommend that, only a 6mb download of the .apk file then the app downloads which maps you want afterwards, about 1gb for uk I think. More re routing and features I think.
The US maps version, which I paid about £2 for I think, has worked flawlessly on several holidays and saved a fortune in data/renting GPS while I'm out there. I've no reason to think the UK version won't work just as well, although I think because Google Navigation works fine and because this is x10 more than the US version, I'll probably give it a miss.
I'm sure I read somewhere that google were going to enable android users to download maps to keep on their device so they don't have to be online ?
Has this happened yet ??
I do know the google maps are much bigger than say TomTom or CoPilot so you could only realistically download an area rather than a whole country or countries, but should be good enough & more importantly free...

Yes you can Download/Pre-cache google maps. Whilst in google maps press the menu button and you should have a 'Labs' option, then select 'Precache map area'. You then pick an area and an area with a 10 mile radius is downloaded.

Info from this months Android magazine.
A slightly cheaper alternative is sygic, which I use and I must say it is brilliant, so much better than google maps and at 19.99 Euros for UK & Ireland. All maps are downloadable so if you go to Europe you don't have to worry about data traffic. http://www.sygic.com/en/android:buy-now
The iphone version of sygic is even cheaper, I think 11.99 euros but I must say that their website is slow as!

WOW! Now, let's hear all the moral maze argument posts .................. LOL
There is a very good (if slightly out of date) comparison of all the different satnav applications for Android at this web site.

@punkstoner1 - What will your next Hot Deal be? How to shoplift from Tesco? How to steal an old lady's purse? How to break into somebody's house?
