Sounds good, though Google does it for free.

Do yourself a favour - don't do it. CoPilot absolutely sucks and will drive you completely insane trying to use it. The software has more bugs than a rodent convention, and only this very week CoPilot sent an email to all Android customers with an update to deal with crashes (not that it matters, the new version crashes too). It takes longer to grab a satellite and work out where you are than it'll take you to complete your journey anyway. Doubly annoying is that most of the bugs are to do with their cack copy prevention - if they spent as much time making it work as hey do making sure nobody could steal it, someone might WANT to steal it! Support? LMAO you have to be kidding - don't take my word for it, just send support an email and wait for a reply! Or rather, don't wait, because you absofreakinlutely will not hear a word for a minimum of two weeks, not even an acknowledgement. And that's if they bother to reply at all...
CoPilot falls neatly between two stools - the 'real' paid for navigation, and the freebies. In doing so, it hits neither target - TomTom and the like charge you, but what they sell you works. Google give it you for free, so you forgive the occasional hiccup. If you're thinking of using CoPilot on an Android device, save the money and just download Google Navigation instead. Trust me, you'll thank me for it.

And then on the other hand, I've been using Co-Pilot for about 2 years, first on an iPhone 3G and for the last 4 months on a HTC Desire.

It worked flawlessly on my iPhone, leading me to give my Sony stand alone satnav to my brother. It was quicker, gave better routes, found it's location in seconds rather than minutes, and was much more responsive.

On the Desire, it was a little buggy at first but still perfectly usable, and rarely crashed. I've had no trouble re-activating after several installs. Even after rooting my phone and installing plain 2.2.

The last version was a bit of a pain as it kept losing my home location, but the last update has worked flawlessly for me so far.

I use it daily, for work and pleasure. It's gotten me to my holiday destination several times and I can count the number of times it's crashed and needed restarting on the fingers of one hand.

Google navigation is ok for the occasional use, but speech quality is abysmal, I can't understand a thing it says, it has no speed camera warnings, and it's not very intuitive.

I'm probably going to give this £10 subscription a go and see how it goes.

I have Copilot Live 8 on my Pulse & its brilliant, I cant fault it, no problems to date. No need to be connected to the net.
I read the reviews before buying it & they were not that good but it works on my pulse, the only down side is it uses about 19mb of phone memory.

Had this on my HTC desire too and it worked great

er no not that greathave you tried to enter a number by holding down a … er no not that greathave you tried to enter a number by holding down a letter, eg to get the number 5 on the Desire keyboard just hold down T, but the co pilot software puts both the T and the 5 on screen, rubbish



Oh yeah, just noticed it does that with the standard input method. I've not had this before as I use swiftkey and it works ok with co pilot.

Google is pretty useless without a data signal though, so would have been unusable foe me last week on holiday.

It's obvious that there is a lot of variablility on peoples experiences.some hate it and some love it.

D'ya know, that's entirely fair. Absolutely any product that has a wide coverage will have some think its awesome and some think its abysmal. Witness the iphone for proof of that! But what ISN'T in dispute though, is the terrifyingly poor level of support CoPilot give their products. I wasn't kidding - you really WILL wait several weeks for any reply and even then it won't be useful. They spend far too much time sending emails to their customer base begging them to vote for CoPilot on whatever review poll is running now, and nowhere near enough time actually reading and replying to support emails.
When I bought CP I had a HTC Hero and was stuck on Android 1.5, one level too low to get Google Nav. Now I've upgraded to the Desire and Android 2.1 I use Google Nav on every journey. I have a paid copy of CP on the same phone, unused. That should tell you everything you need to know...

We used co-pilot in work for a while - until the postcode navigation was making people drive to addresses in the wrong county! now we use TomTom
