I've been using Copilot since about 2012 and I really like being able to have the maps copied to your phone. This app has gone through several iterations over the years and it's had its ups and downs but the vast majority of the time it's been fantastic and has almost always gotten me where I want to go without using mobile data. I paid something like nine bucks for the paid version back around 2013 and I've gotten my money's worth a thousand times over. I can't recommend this app highly enough.
I bought this app for when I have no cell coverage in remote areas. I recently was near a national park and searched for nearby restaurants and this app could not find anything close despite restaurant s that have been there for years. Complete let down!
I had previously owned a Garmin GPS unit, but wanted to have that functionality onboard my smartphone. I decided to try out CoPilot to do the job. For the most part, I would call the experiment a success. I have U.S. maps onboard my phone and don't need cell data, and it has a workable, but not overly thorough list of POIs for restaurants, service stations, etc. I think what makes CoPilot unique is that it allows you to import your own routes as well as POIs and have them always available offline, which was a big feature for me and something I did a lot with my Garmin GPS. Without these kinds of features, you could probably make do with Google Maps or HERE maps. Though I'm happy with its feature set, some improvements could be made: first and foremost, I'd love the ability to add notes to imported POIs. As it stands now, you can only bring in latitude, longitude, name, address, and phone. To my knowledge, you can't add any kind of your own comments or notes. Also, when following an imported route, you cannot change waypoints to stops or vice versa without doing it one at a time. This is kind of unwieldy.
We have found this app to mostly meet out needs. Leads us incorrectly out of our neighborhood, however (wants us to go into a dead end). No problems during travel...yet.
Lol of address is missing or house number and same in new York City. EASY FIX IT import MAPS From HERE for USA and Canada will fix all the problems. Gps accuracy out for 400 feet and speed limit. Very easy fix. All above problem .import maps from here
I have used this sat nav brand since Windows Mobile for PDAs. Until a recent phone rebuild I have been able to restore licenses with USA, Uk maps, Voice, traffic subscription. Now this is not working with last restore and all I have is the option to buy them again. Not happy. Hope I feel better after logging a support call but that's a pain. I am not inclined to think these sudden changes and hiccups are accidental.
Sometimes fixing the small things can make a big difference....so we did just that.
