One of the better sat navs

One of the better sat navs




I agree and this is a good price, for some reason the USA version is normally cheaper than the UK version, must be because we are mugs.
£9 for a proper Sat Nav and people are voting cold? Weird.

I've used CoPilot for years, it might not always take you the best way around areas you know but it always gets you there.

Probably because "sat nav" apps like Waze are free?
It used to be good earlier. But not now. I bought last year. And this year it was asking to buy again. If it is time limited to one year they should tell beforehand that it needs a subscription like office 365. Dodgy company. Also Google Maps works very well and is free. Wait some time and it will ask you to buy again

Been using it a long time myself, and it's definitely not time limited. Possibly there is some sort of problem with your licence, but I am sure they would sort it out for you.
All about waze
only ACTIVE TRAFFIC needs yearly subscription. Google maps has got better over the years and with internet connection you can get heads up about traffic jams
i had similar problems a fwe years ago (at the time i had a galaxy s2 which was a new handset, s3 hadnt come out yet)

After uninstalling to reclaim space and then not having permission to reinstall the software i gave up and bought a refurbed tomtom. Subsequently it disappeared from my play store wallet.

Was surprised a few months ago to be skimming through my play list of apps and this sudenly popped up again. I reinstalled it without issues and have found it to be quite useful. Google navigation is better in some respects (particularly in starting navigating seamlessly from a point selected in google maps or a google search result) but for a live driving interface its still quite slow and poor. If you dont use audio with google navigation and rely solely on the screen it is barely useable.

I think refrences to the app 'expiring' after 365 days relate to seperate in app purchases for traffic etc... Quite aggressive in app nagging screens to push these products.

It's because heredrive is free it's voted cold. Only feature here drive lacks is speed cameras, but it alerts on breaking speed limit.
If your going over it you deserve a fine - end of.

Nokia here tells me when there's speed camera approaching.

I still use Google maps though for nexus 7 that's built into my dashboard
I have had copilot for 5/6 years since my 3GS. It's a lifetime service. Traffic is a annual sub within the iap system.
Many free sat navs don't have offline maps.
For this price you can't go wrong with a lifetime of updates and faultless on/offline use.
I'm not looking to get flamed, but I personally prefer Sygic, they also have 70% off their world map right now until the 28th of December for €29.99 which is around £22.

I used to use Sygic until about a week ago when I realised the latest updates have made it near unusable. I replaced it with copilot. I've made this comment only because anybody thinking of buying Sygic right now should be very cautious.

For the record I'm not the only one having issues. I googled around and found plenty of others. I'm sure they'll fix it sooner or later but it definitely cannot be relied on right now.

For the inevitable replies from people saying they have no issue with Sygic - of course it's possible the issues don't affect everybody for whatever reason but Google around and you'll see. The biggest issue for me was instructions to use the wrong exit at roundabouts (visual cue would be right but audio cue not, e.g saying take the first exit when you need the third) and saying very confusing things like 'take the fourth exit turn right'.
Only £2.29 for USA version?

Here Maps has more problems than that. It is stuck in portrait mode while not in driving mode. It can't route with a via. Remembered locations (their 'collections') require an account which you have to be online to log into.

I am just amazed how a mature program as big and complicated and expensive to develop as this can have such huge usability flaws.
Decided it is cold because of the subscription required for traffic information and for wasting 15 minutes of my life looking and failing to find a price for that subscription.

£7.99 per year, but free for first 12 months
See there are hidden costs involved which they do not tell. Very unfair

I don't know about Android as I haven't used it in so long but on iOS you can view all in-app purchases.
No Google is better with now with offline maps
I deliver around rural Wales, any idea if this would do the job? I need it to not rely on phone signal for a start. And include single track "roads".

Using nav mii at the moment which seems OK I the towns but doesn't recognise the smaller lanes which many of my customers live up.
@kye1987 Have you tried sygic from the app store? seems pretty good, you can also use GPS Bridge from the app store to locate your destination via google maps satellite.
