Great to have all maps in one place!
I've been using co-pilot for 5 or so years across a dozen European countries, the US as well as South East Asia, and have been very happy with the performance of the app. The routes usually work well with default settings, though sometimes a little tweak can improve things after driving the route a few times. And active traffic also works well across countries as long as you have mobile data roaming that doesn't cost a fortune or a local SIM.
Contrary to some experiences of the other reviewers here, I have never had the app crash on me while in use for navigation (though running updates have sometimes crashed it mid-way).
Updated the maps as requested now does not work
I have used copilot for 4 years and although it's routing is occasionally a little off it is pretty reliable at getting you to your destination. However there some problems with the current version which demonstrate a poor software testing regime at Copilot before they issue updates. After a map update it always seems to need to be done twice. This is hugely annoying if you don't realise until you are away from wifi. I downloaded the US mapping for a trip to Orlando and it took 2 days before it worked out I was in the US and not UK. Finally after a recent Europe map update in Dec 15 it now does not recognise any towns and does not display any map data. I recommend you do not update the maps if you have the app. If you don't have the app then look elsewhere for now.
Bought before, now updated and I have to pay again?
I bought this a few years ago and worked ok, but since the updates they have deactivate the voice directions and now I get a pop up message (WHILST I'M DRIVING!) prompting me to pay more more in order to have voice direction! Guess what? I won't ever purchase this app again!
Aslo google maps does a far better route, I regularly do a trip of 50 miles which takes 1.5 hrs, the best route that copilot could come up with was 70 miles at 2.5 hours, even when I deselected preferences for certain roads.
Also the navigation screen is rather cluttered.
To Add insult when I started the app up to drive the other day it insisted on doing an update, as I had no internet connection I couldn't skip this so the app was rendered useless when I needed it most!
