My Number 1 backup I've been using Copilot for over 10 years, on different phones and different platforms. This is a great program and is now used as my number one back up. I use Waze because it is interactive, social and up to date to the minute. But there are times when Waze has no GPS due to heavy weather and/or location. That's when I used Copilot, it will definitely get me to my location. The only problem I had with Copilot is that it sometimes wouldn't find your address location and ask you for a cross street. 5 stars!
The new version will not open on my lg g3 i keep getting an error then it close so i just revert it back to the old version that works
Updated my original review to 4 stars. Had to revisit GPS apps again to switch. I really liked the other app I was using but it is no longer supported in terms of feature upgrades (just maps are updated). I re-installed copilot to find that the maps can now be downloaded to a sd card. Now if the app would recognize abbreviations better. Original Review. Would be 4 stars if Copilot would allow maps to be saved to the external micro sd card (with App remaining on internal memory) . Been accurate so far. Will take a look at the TomTom app in a couple months, due to the absence of saving maps to the external sd card storage. Edit: with the failure to include the ability to install maps on the external SD Card in the May update to Copilot, I have left and installed a newly released competitor who automatically installed the maps on the external sd card slot. More expensive but worth it for this feature in my opinion. It's a shame since I liked the Copilot app but not their resistance to adding this feature, by reading their responses to this question on their website. If this feature is as much importance as it is for me, go elsewhere, and use a competitor's app.
The best offline GPS maps navigation! When going on trips where cell signal is spotty or not available, having an offline GPS navigation program is essential. This program has saved the day on many trips. I have tried every major offline GPS navigation system for Android, and CoPilot GPS is by far the best. The entire US and Canada maps & POIs is 2.4gb (other countries are an additional reasonable cost), but you can download individual sections of the USA if you prefer. CoPilotGps has many advantages such as a great POI browser, ability to see POIs on the active map as well as along your route (something Google Maps does not have), recent and quick favorites access. Speed limit warnings is very helpful in unfamiliar locations or when not clearly posted. Most POIs even have phone numbers. CoPilot GPS also has a fantastic voice navigation system which is so well done you could navigate easily on its voice prompts alone. An absolutely essential program worth every penny!
Fantastic! Love the app on my M9 Great maps. I've used TomTom, Sygic and Navigon didn't like any of them. Most of my travels are out of data areas so Google is out of the question. This is the best app by far. I love the drag and drop routing option. I made the mistake of ignoring the traffic alerts. I was stuck on the Florida turnpike for 2.5 hours. Next time ill listen.
Difficult loading maps I loaded the European maps and after some 5 countries the app just stopped to allow more countries. I tried various countries and after 5 percent there is no chance to get the complete download. This happens with different countries. So it's just a 3
