@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.

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.

No Google is better with now with offline maps

​Thats more down to your providers poor network than Google Maps, I use Maps several times daily and rarely have connection issues on 3 so its my go to 99% of the time. Most of the time I'm in rural Yorkshire but I've also lately been down to Glastonbury and London using the M6 and M1 respectively and it proved faultless on both journeys.

I'm not knocking this deal mind if anyone is on a limited data plan, for £14 its a great basic sat nav App but Maps is so well linked into other Google apps like now and calendar and its as good as it gets with giving sat nav directions its just a no brainer for me.

Can you tell me what roads in London that doesn't occur on???



I guess the annoying thing is looking on the phone screen and seeing a little Waze icon wiggling down the same street as you. Waze is obviously directing people from all directions onto the same streets --- even if the sensible thing to do would be to direct Waze traffic in one direction only (i.e., those going east to west should be routed along roads with other cars going east to west)

It's like a game of Pacman at times - and often more stressful than just going on the major roads and dealing with the traffic! Plus, those adverts oO

tldr: It might be ok as a reduced price, but i have supported this in the past and it is not the best navigation product it claim to be. Nor for individuals, neither for professionals.

Yes, you need to download the map before you setup on a journey (all of the map you are planning to use), but this isn't something that a navigation app should boasting about. it should be the norm. In fact I would argue against downloading single city map, because if you need the state map, then you will download another map (file) for the latter after you have downloaded the former. And this might happen at the least convenient time (3G/4G connection only with incurring additional cost)

Talking about additional cost: some of the thing that should be part of the application have been put under a micro transaction scheme, to create more value for the company. Need a new voice (that is more understandable)? Need actual real time traffic information? Pay up.
Adding to that the confusing license scheme of free CoPilot that will see you pay up to three times the price of the application to get the same functionalities.

Don't rely on the map too much because they are way too often not up to date to the point where you might find yourself wanting for a real life map (you know the paper kind). Zip code search is ok most of time, but there are plenty to desire when it comes to European's post code. Specially with the complicated scheme of the UK compared to the rest of Europe.

The "Lane Assist" is more of a gimmick that something really useful: It often fails (CopPilot support will normally blame the map's data but it really is the responsibility of the company to get updated maps' data) and when it works, you should really focus on the road rather than looking at that screen.

The logic of the "best route" is often good enough if you do not know the journey between cities, but that's about it. And modifying it on the device can be a real in, even on larger screen (above the average 4.8"). And there is no official way to create a map outside the application and import it

If something doesn't work don't bother contacting support for real help. They are mostly useless (talking by experience) or are told to not provide the correct information and blame the customer instead.

The price is often guided by no reasonable decision apart from greed, although I have long suspected that in Europe at least, it is driven by some licensing scheme due to the fact that CoPilot is buying maps from map provider. This has a direct impact in the sense that map update are seldom and slow.
Don't be fooled by the "life time" license as well, This license is still using a product key code to activate and should you encounter any issue with the reactivation of the said license you might be in for a world of hurts. Not mentioning the fact that older version will have their support dropped entirely, so you might have a license, but no way to use it. Best strategy is pestering the company for a cheap upgrade should you have a device that can support it.

The app itself is a real drain on plenty of mobile devices due to being very graphical intensive and needing a GPS connection at all time.
The GPS localisation is ok-ish at best. and some options are only available if you are up to modify by hand some config files. And last time I checked, I still receive update to one thread I have created while being in support regarding the inability of this application to download directly to storage card the data. The work around being to manually change the path to the data and move the said data.

The application is "supporting" over 5000 devices, but often fail on its nose for no apparent reasons on common devices (Samsung Galaxy range), and good luck getting a proper support. You will need to tell support that the application has been uninstalled and reinstalled, and its data deleted and re downloaded through several different ways to get any meaningful information trickling back to you from the support leader (sic).

I really believe you will be better deserved with a stand alone device from a well known competitor than "this piece of trash" (dixit some of my old customers)

Do yourself a favor and pass on this deal as if might be great, money-wise, but the application is far from being the perfect road companion it is being advertised as.

Only have experience of the UK version - have used on ios & android. Worst satnav I have ever used. Failed time and time again. I bought it because of its positive reviews - sorry I did

Original Poster

For me, I thought it worth a punt when it was last sold at this price and did find it useful for my USA driving and not relying on data, it's only recently with Three's Feel at Home mega cheap roaming has using data while in the USA becomes a reality.

For me £5 spent on a potentially useful satnav for a trip costing £1500 with flights and car it seemed money well spent.

Certainly likely to work out much cheaper than renting a satnav from the hire car company at their stupid rates of $5 a day or more.

Edited by: "spannerzone" 26th Nov 2014

Used this last year on a Samsung galaxy s2, and it was fine around Santa Monica, LA and onwards to Vegas. Worthwhile researching where you want to go beforehand and adding these in as points of interest whilst on your home wifi rather than when you are out there.

Anyone got any views against this and navfree usa which gets brilliant reviews

Not used it in the states but have here and its excellent, I added the HD traffic option was right on the nail and has redirected me on more than one occasion to save time. Used Tom Tom and this blows it out of the water.

You know you can pre-load maps via wifi right? Also, in car chargers are very cheap

I've tried Co-pilot and personally didn't get on with it....I use Google maps and pre-download the maps for the area that I'll be in, in advance.....

Have been using CoPilot for 10 years, on Smartphone, back in the days before mobiles had GPS, you had to have separate GPS receiver box.
It is good software, free traffic updates for 12 months, free safety camera update, links to Twitter/facebook to share journey information.
Free map updates (roughly once a year).
Only need mobile data connection for live traffic, all other data is stored on your phone.
Have used it in UK, Europe and New Zealand, has made holiday's less stressful as can put destinations in whilst at home, so when arrive in foreign country and tired, just start copilot and select already stored destination. A lot cheaper than hiring Sat-Navs from Car Rental companies.

How much are the in app map updates? For example the UK & Ireland one.

Just a note about the difference in price for UK vs USA maps. The problem is the map data providers, not the app developers. In the UK the Ordnance Survey and other mapping agencies charge outrageous amounts of money for the source data, but also maintain it a bit better than the USA's cheap/free datasets.

Be grateful the prices have gone down from the £80 (with no updates) it used to be.

I believe it only searches to first few postcodes and hence its listing of so many other streets that only confuses the user.



+1 its really annoying.

Copilot 8 crashes for me every nown again and I have to go into applications and force close it and open it again, it does carry on from where you are when you do that but its really dangerous to be doing that while driving! I hope this new one doesn't do that!

Google maps is useless takes 10 minutes to find a postcode with no 3g, has one crappy voice and doesn't re-route quick enough!

Good price and purchased!

I have copilot 8, I like it but my Desire used to reboot when using it ( also did the same using Google Maps so its not the software). I reported it to HTC and they fitted a new motherboard for free.

I will probably wait and get TomTom when it comes out for the Android rather than upgrade to copilot 9 which is sounding like it was a little rushed out to me. never had dealings with the support staff so i couldn't comment on that. If Copilot 8 drops in price once v9 is established i would say that would be a good purchase.

Just to clarify the 'Circle' issue, the only way I can get it to say 'Circle' is by selecting English US (instead of English UK) and then TTS voice (Text to speech). This does say 'Cirlce' but all other US and UK voices say 'Roundabout'.
