The best iPhone navigation app period
To get a better one, you need to get a Lumina 920 Windows phone with the Nokia mapping app. And then you can only use it intermittently because the phone discharges faster than it can charge and the battery is dead in 4 months (went through 3 of them before giving up).
The Apple and Google maps are catching up but CoPilot just keeps staying one step ahead. Adding and reordering stops for a trip is a delight.
$10 to have the maps downloaded to my phone is a bargain. I don't live in an internet cave so downloaded maps are essential.
I'm looking forward to running it on a 5.5" iPhone 6.
Improvements I'd like to see:
1) an option to display altitude on the main display
2) more frequent map updates
3) email notification of map updates
I've not tried the traffic notification feature as I've no use for it.
We've not tried it on my wife's iPad as we bought TomTom earlier for that decide. TT works well on the iPad but the navigation interface is the worst I've seen on any smartphone or dedicated navigation device.
Awesome, but be aware.
Says it doesn't use data, but be careful. When I checked my cellular, it had used a minuscule amount, even though I disabled cellular within the app. It seems to use data to locate you initially, for accuracy probably. If you truly want no data used for the app, disable cellular from the menu within settings on your phone. It can still locate you, though possibly less precisely. Otherwise a great navigation app. You can explore without worrying about overages, and that is awesome.
Great and useful app
I am using this on a 2500 miles motorcycle trip through the southeast -- and it was easy to learn (though I am still learning some of its features) and easy to use. I especially like being able to choose the types of roads I want to ride on -- and selecting "custom" speeds for each of the types of roads. A great source of some more POI's. Changing the selected route is also very easy -- and used a lot! I,'ve used a number of similar " mapping" programs ubut this is the best of the lot!
