I've used this for years and it looks like a lot of work has gone into it the layout is good but the problem I find is inputting an address without post code after you enter the city then it's Street name. If it's a large city and the street starts simular to others ie (church ) it pushes you into drop downs and there could be mumerus church lanes and if you try to type the full address it tends to split names as it thinks best. ie woodland becomes wood land and Rookwood becomes Rook wood which is a different parts of the city. It's only the first day with the new upgrade and never had an issue with the old one. Just to clarify if you have the full postcode it works fine.
One of the better sat nav apps, however the new ui seems like a step back and. I much prefer the old layout which was near perferct. In landscape mode the old ui was well designed. The new ui has poor placement of on screen info with no ability to customise the layout or revert to the old ui. The traffic service I found to be slow and unusable to city driving, but ok to longer distance motorway driving.
much better than free sat nav's (which rely on a data connection) as this app downloads maps into your device so you are never reliant on a data connection. the app very well presented. route selection is excellent as is the detour function. highly recommended.
Don't like the new screen layout. When I put my phone in landscape view the information down the right side takes up too much of my display really annoying and ugly, also put postcode in for Gargrave and it comed up Keighley which is miles away. Gone back to Google maps it's the better option now!
It just updated as I was on my way to a client's house. Now the navigate to contact does not work properly, it just brings up a list of addresses our thinks are right, tried several and I only 1 was correct address. I don't like the new GUI but I can't imagine you going back. I've hast top use the free Google maps to get me to where I'm going. Been using co pilot for around a decade now and think this may be my last time!
Ok guys really cool update still the best Sat nav. but as always there's a but. Why did you put the info display on the side when we rotate to landscape it worked so much better along the bottom as then the full width of the map was displayed. Now we have a small square. Be big not square. 😉 and yes guys great work and keep at it. Always gets me any where I've needed without fail.. Cheers guys.
