I'm being prompted to install map updates today. When i do I'm getting this error message: "Error starting map download [Invalid_Version]" Luckily i used the manual method and tested on a regional map which i don't need. Anyone using the automatic map update method (which deletes ALL maps before downloading and installing them) will be unable to use copilot. This is an extremely urgent issue!! Ps: no updated version of the app shows on the App Store at this time, error message doesn't make sense from the user perspective.
after using this app for more than 5 years for a class A RV up and down the astcoast and as far west as the Mississippi I am fairly confident about its routing- the one thing it needs to do corectly, it does: GPS routing. my feedback to the developers would be to include eta ( time and milage ) to next stop or waypoint while planning a trip ie see how far it is to a reststop/fuelstop/lunchstop.
I’ve been using this APP for roughly 6 years. It allows you to drop pin on specific routing. You have the ability to save the route for a future use. I prefer this app over enroute because it allows you to us unlimited pin drops. Room for improvement: I wish the app had a tool where I could share this route with another user. Occasionally, when putting in 10 drops, somehow the system swaps pens, and you have to go back and fix that. Overall, I recommend this app to several people and have help them set it up.
Your app is no good. Pulling my 5th wheel app sent me on a private road that didn't even go through. I had to back onto the state road on a blind curve a the crest of a hill not fun. Then sent me down a terrible narrow curvy road. The guy at the campground said "oh you never want to go down those roads. Thanks for for a terrible days drive. Today it tried to send me down a single lane road. I'm smart enough not to trust it. It told me that the road I chose was closed it was not. I'm not going use it anymore. Please refund me for the purchase. Pic one is the route down the narrow road the two state highways were what I chose. Pic two is the route down a narrow road over a bridge with very steep approach. I WANT A REFUND..
Had app setup and working well. Subscribed and ready to go. Renewal came around and the day after the charge was irreversible it ceased working and nothing will fix. Will consider it a $16 lesson and stick with Waze. Just warning others to look elsewhere.
I started using this app back in the 90s and it was a very good one at the time. However, the company simply has failed to keep up with the times; nearly every GPS routing app has Apple CarPlay/Android Auto implementation. The fact that this company has willfully decided not to implement it says everything you need to know. look elsewhere.
The app works fairly well, though it would be nice if there was more options and flexibility in searches and for $9.99 per month, you’d think it would have satellite and street view available!
Good routing, light on features, but nicely customizable . I’ve been using copilot for years in conjunction with Google nav. It runs quite well on low powered devices. The maps are updated regularly (2-4 usually).
I just bought the app and it doesn’t have the campgrounds I want to go to, I spent 20 minutes and finally gave up. It is so hard to manipulate to get a location to navigate to it isn’t worth the time.
The good: it’s got a feature called “avoid this road” The bad: that feature works about 50% of the time, and after numerous back and forth emails with support, I’ve determined that the only way to avoid a road reliably is to make numerous waypoints. Very annoying. The good: fairly intuitive user interface The bad: horrendous voice options for turn-by-turn navigation. I had to close the female New Zealander voice because it was the least grating. And it’s not great. The good: it’s pretty decent in terms of routing on major highways. The bad: it is utterly horrendous on smaller highways and streets. Almost every time I get into a smaller town or out into the country, it attempts to route my 40 ton, 70+ foot long vehicle down residential streets far too narrow for a truck, often with power lines and/or tree limbs that are too low for my 13’ 6” clearance, or straight up have signs restricting trucks. When I say almost every time, I mean, literally I have to approach EVERY turn in these kinds of areas with immense caution as the likelihood of getting into a situation if I follow the gps is exceptionally high. OVERALL: I used to pay for a subscription to this app. After all the issues, I decided to cough up the money for a dedicated truck gps. They all have their issues, none are perfect. But my Garmin was far superior in that at least it almost never routed me illegally. Then my company purchased a mass subscription for anyone in the company who wanted it. I figured that if large companies are infusing the developers with cash, then it’s probably well improved since I quit using it. Now, I’ve realized that my company is just giving people who can’t afford a truck gps an option that is at least better than Google maps for a truck. I’m not happy with this product. It’s marginally useful. I sincerely hope they start paying closer attention to the issues thousands of people have been complaining about.
