First off, you need to pick a REGION (continent), after which you will be able to download the map of one single country for free. All additional maps will cost you - dearly. Unfortunately, once you select the region, you won't be able to change it, even though you haven't downloaded any map! That for me is a deal breaker.
How do you expect someone one to have a good test at it with only a few days trial Only managed to actually test it with the sound and it's to distracting trying to watch the screen i find but when I did try it i found that it was taking the long way round passing the same points multiple times and passing points that where on my list of stops then having to go back to stop at them later not good in a are your unfamiliar with need more time to really see if it's worth actually having let alone paying for it in the first place in my opinion
My favourite satnav I've been using copilot for years, I'm a newly retired truck driver, the car version served me well for age's, always up to date with new road's and CAMERA'S, clear instructions (when I listened to her), lol, now a truck version, it'll have teathing problems, but hey give the team a chance, they'll sort it with the help of everyone who use's it, great work all at ALK Technologies
Total rubbish I have long been a fan of Copilot having used Live 8 version for years on a Gingerbread phone. Sadly that will not install to an HTC on ICS so I tried this version. It simply will not communicate with the GPS and the tech support is as crap as this app - thank god I did not purchase extra maps before I did a test drive!
Good offline GPS app for the whole North America It's my default app when I'm driving outside of my home town. No data roaming charge is just great and,less of a hassle than other app like Google Map. However, map update is infrequent and many times lead me astray.
Would like to upgrade to full premier license but get error message and can't complete purchase. Otherwise, I have reviewed so many Nav apps and this is clearly the best offline. Also allows an itinerary that can optimize multiple stops along your route (ie: house hunting) that most including Google Maps doesn't. No system does it all, so between this and Google Maps I get everything necessary. Worth the $9.
