14.99 EUR on Play Store in rest of Europe, shame the UK often loses out (same with other apps like TomTom etc.)

I use to use Copliot Live 8 which was great but I couldnt transfer it from my old phone I am now using Coplilot GPS with copliot live maps. Does anyone know what the difference is with copilot premium.

This is a very good satnav for £14.99 its decent price. How does map updates work with this? Do you need to pay for them?

Updates with Copilot are free.

Bought for I phone, but now have android phone. Feel a bit cheated that I have to pay full price again for new phone.

Good price though so heat added

I recently downloaded MapFactor (Beta) from Google Play along with maps of South Africa to my T-Mobile Vivacity Android phone. Both the program and maps (for all countries) are free, gratis and for nothing. You don't have to register, they don't ask for your credit card and there's no time restriction on its use. Unlike some other freebie GPS programs (Google Maps, Navfree, etc) to don't need to be connected to the internet for the thing to work. All you need is a GPS signal. To be honest, I wasn't expecting much from Mapfactor but once I got used to the quirky interface, I was genuinely impressed. It guided me from Capetown to Port Elizabeth and direct to the door of every B&B we were staying at in between. I'm sure Co-pilot is much more sophisticated but before you part with cash, have a play with Mapfactor and see if it meets your needs.

You can sometimes deactivate the old one in the settings & that will allow you to re install it on a new phone or you can contact Copilot & they can do it for you.

how much space would this take, if you download the UK map? I got a Nexus 4 that I aint used yet but I'm limited to 16gb (well probably about 14gb) Looking on the p;ay store the app seems to have had a few bad reviews lately

Oh I do miss the Garden route but using a satnav on this route is like climbing Snowdon using a mountaineer.

Am I missing something or have you been in your Dad's Christmas booze cupboard?

I tried searching for it in the play store and its coming up blank, mapfactor that is. My phones probably not compatible or the internet isn't that good.

The UK maps are about 200mb not much at all.
it is customisable and the maps are updated regularly.. complete with speed camera updates.

Very good Satnav that i use n my phone (i bout it at this price when it was first released. worth £15 of anyones money

I've frequently used navfree and an internet connection is not required.

Nice one. I'll give this a go !

Here's the link to MapFactor on Play. You need you be on Android 2.3 or higher...

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mapfactor.navigator&hl=en

I thought Navfree didn't need an internet link either but I can assure you it does if you use it outside the UK. I only went over to MapFactor when I realised Navfree wasn't working in South Africa.

In case you've never heard of it, the Garden Route is that particularly beautiful stretch of South Africa between Cape Town and PE. I found MapFactor particularly helpful in getting me the last couple of miles to B&B's that were just a bit out of the way. Otherwise, driving out there is an easy & really enjoyable experience.

Me also. Navfree is great, and runs from downloaded maps, not from live Data.Its really worth having, as my Tomtom is so glitchy sometimes...

nice satnav software, use on my desire hd and no problems.

I'd say your missing something, look up the garden route & you might find it

Tried this and didn't think much of it after it sent me the wrong/long way nearly each time I used it. Stuck with Tomtom. Heat for low price - here's hoping TT and CP get into an undercutting war with each other.

Used this before tom tom came out, really nice piece of software better in many ways than TT more open and flexible. I only use TT now as it has easier stats to see for my crap eyes and cost more, that's it.

If your phone/satnav combination doesn't have a great "voice" for satnav then try the SVOX text-speech-engine (free on Google Play) and the "Victoria" voice (£1.99), Much easier on the ears on a long journey.

I have the Europe version of this for my Android phone, it's great for motorways and the active traffic is great. Don't trust it in cities or towns though its hopeless in these areas a few times its tried to take me down one way roads, tram lines etc.

Navfree will not work offline outside the UK --> internet connection is required. Tried it in a few countries and you can browse the map but to calculate route for navigation sadly Navfree relies on data link.

yeah i guess we all feel like that but we dont consider the money they invest in developing the same app for another platform.

You can store map data on your phone with Google Maps. For free.

Google navigation is free, and is generally oretty good. But since using this, I have to say, it is much better experience.

Great price.

Does this require data, or will it work on a cheap Android tablet?

May sound like a stupid question but, is it £15 PER year?

Except you need an internet connection for Google Maps Navigation to create a route.

Copilot live8 is available on interweb for free if you do a google search....;-)

I think you get the SatNav prog for £15 (for ever) but the "active traffic" (which I guess is live traffic updates) is good for 1 year.

This sound pretty good from this review. According to the review Active Traffic normally costs £11 p.a. Wonder how up to date the maps are, how often the maps are updated, and how much updates cost (free would be nice:)

[Edit] Oops, post #4 already said update free (as did redbutcher below) [/Edit]

I've used co pilot for the last 2 years. Great bit of kit. Updates are free and even had an extra year of active traffic thrown in for being a loyal customer. Very happy with it for the price I paid.

I think Sygic for £17.49 for two copies (Christmas offer) is a good shout too.

In all honesty, not that familiar with CoPilot but I recognise it's a good offer and have voted hot

How annoying. I paid this amount for CoPilot Live via the in app upgrade from the free one. Sigh.

I done the Sygic special Christmas promotion of £17.49 and you get 2 licenses for that
It is for lifetime license too and you can transfer it from device to device for when you change your phone or tablet.

Only 2 days left
Sygic christmas offer!!

Got this a while ago.
It's ok, but wish I'd spent the extra for Garmin - presuming it's pretty similar to my Garmin sat nav I used to have.

GREAT price for a nifty piece of 'bells and whistles' sat nav software.

I have the Western Europe on the Samsung S2 and it works a treat.

Routing is not as direct as the best TomTom dedicated units but this is £100 less.

This drained my battery like crazy, last version was better. Not good directional graphics either.
