  • Great GPS APP Feb 4, 2018

    By PanteraJaguar
    I am a trucker and I've been testing this GPS for about 3 months now. I know it's not designed for trucks but I use it along my truck GPS anyway. I recommend it for anyone that's always on the road across the country , specially in places where there will be no data connection. You can set up a profile for an RV which can help avoid restricted roads, I've only had a couple of instances where it took me to a restricted road , but ultimately you should never rely 100 % on any GPS . I like very much the next-turn feature , it gives you enough time to be in the lane you're supposed to be in. i really love that since I'm driving a big rig, I've tested it in most cities and works fine. There's been rare cases where it has failed to warn me of lane changes. I like the map color themes and other info display features. One complaint that I have is the 3D mode is barely 3D, I wish it was tilted at a lower angle a little further to give a 3D feel, as if seeing further ahead. Overall this is a great app/gps for its full price, it works everywhere and it's very reliable. Thanks

    Way better than specific built truck gps’s sold at truck stops. Gets you into and out of cities, towns, etc on the truck route. Will not route on roads that are not legal for a truck, will not route you under bridges that aren’t high enough for your rig. Full customization available for hazmat, over height, over weight etc. best of all, it’s on the phone,(or tablet), you already have! If you update your device, just re download it to your new device for free. If you have bad or absolutely no cell coverage... doesn’t matter, this works off of the gps system so it’ll work anyway. Just like anything else, it isn’t perfect, I’ve found obscure, and/or new roads that wasn’t noted in the system, (and they have a way to submit that so it’ll be included in their next update), but 95 to 99 percent of the time, this gps will get you where you are going... legally. To many features to go through, but all are useful and rival what I used when I had a dedicated gps back in the day. SO GET IT ALREADY!!!

    After buying this app a few years ago, when the purchase price was a lifetime subscription, today for the second year running, you have taken £13.99 from my bank account. Last year, you assured me this would not happen again. I contacted my bank, and they said I have to contact you, as apparently it's a 'pre-approved' payment. I have submitted a ticket via the app, and await your reply and a refund. Really not happy about this happening again !

  • No CarPlay support Oct 16, 2020

    By lobster15526487
    This app is fantastic in most ways. My two complaints are 1) this is not compatible with CarPlay so it doesn’t show up on my dashboard screen like Google Maps does. Instead I turn Google on with the volume muted and run Copilot on my phone with the volume on. This is sometimes confusing but much easier to glance at than the tiny phone screen. My other complaint is I can’t share saved trips across devices. They are saved as files locally to my device so I can’t open it on my wife’s phone for when she is driving. I have to duplicate the trip manually. For some reason Copilot rarely has truck stops by the brand and address shown on Google. This is usually okay to work around but I do find it odd.

  • Worked great overseas without cell coverage Mar 27, 2018

    By SoCal-LEH
    My wife & I traveled to Italy recently. Before we left the States I downloaded the map of Italy and identified our key destinations and the routes between them. CoPilot worked perfectly our entire time in Italy. We did not need to use any cell phone coverage. CoPilot knew every little road we took & when we made a wrong turn it always led us back. The only time CoPilot got confused was when we were in a big city with tall buildings around & my phone lost the GPS signal. That could happen with any GPS device, however, so I don’t fault CoPilot. Once my phone caught the signal, CoPilot was right there. I particularly liked having the routes planned in advance. When we traveled off the beaten path, I could easily retrieve a saved destination and, bam, CoPilot would route us there. Easy-peasy. Since we do not speak Italian, CoPilot gave us, me in particular since I did all the driving, a lot of confidence on the road. No need to have a road map open. No stress over asking, “Is this our exit? On what street do I turn? How do you spell that? Ack!” CoPilot gave us plenty of advance notice & clear directions. Whew! I recommend this app.

    I was not impressed with this app. I wasn't able to choose another route easily, as in other apps. Then, for some strange reason I haven't figured out yet, after receiving a phone call (which I answered) the voice commands from CoPilot stopped talking out loud. I was towing my 24' TT from MA to NJ and just as I was getting into the thick of it (NY traffic) NO sound! I ended up stupidly following the visual navigation which had me cross over the GW Bridge!!! NOT my idea of how I wanted to go!!! I

  • This thing almost killed us!!! May 10, 2019

    By vinnycat1
    If I could give it negative rating I would . This guided us into a closed road with our 45 ft motor home and 25 ft trailer. A very narrow rd. There was also a rr track paralleling the rd and a few trains came along while we were trying to figure out what to do. Tried to back up into a rd that was crossing the track but it was uphill and we were blocking traffic as well as it would have left the trailer on the tracks if a train came along as there wasn’t a long distance and was onto the tracks as well. There was a narrow driveway with a ditch on both sides ahead and only because my husband has experience with tractors with trailers was he able to back in and get us out of there. If he had not been as experienced as he was we would have had to pay for a tow out of there, they would have had to unhook the trailer with the car and tow the motor home backwards then we would have had to have the trailer turned around and towed it back to the motor home to be hooked back up. After we did get ourselves out of there the app kept trying to reroute us back at which time we turned it off and guessed our way out of the town and back to the interstate. This took place because we relied on it to go from the campground we were at to the interstate. I am on a trial for this app and nowhere can I find out how to opt out so before you start your trial period find out how to get out of it first.

    So...the road preferences that were removed a while back have been reinstated which is good. The crashing problem which required deleting and reinstalling including the maps appears fixed. Now we have the most recent problem where I am only given the option of searching locally when looking for a ferry port or poi. I presume it's a software problem and not intentional? It would be nice to know if this is the case as I travel a lot and it's now much harder to plan a route. Please fix!

  • Unreliable Aug 9, 2019

    By CaniKwi
    I bought this years ago & was annoyed that my purchase didn’t count for anything when it moved to a subscription model. However, I need a reliable GPS on my phone for our RV travels. This isn’t it. On the first trip while using it Copilot directed us down a road that we should never have been on. I don’t blindly follow GPS instructions but neither Apple Maps nor my paper map indicated anything to raise alarms. After we turned into this narrow country road with swamp each side and no shoulders we reached a sign saying that there was no access for vehicles over 1/2 ton or longer than 20 feet. We’re 16 tons and 40 feet and there was no area to turn around. Backing half a mile down a country road to turn back into a busy state highway was great fun. Copilot wouldn’t reroute. It kept telling us to turn back onto that road. The second time, it routed us onto city streets that had low (very low, one was 9’) overpasses. Luckily, I picked up on that before we turned off. Then the app wouldn’t reroute. Third & last time, I ran copilot concurrently with MapQuest, and ran Apple Maps on the iPad alongside. Copilot lost signal and ran around in circles, then tried to turn us around to start the route over. Neither of the others lost our position. Copilot is now uninstalled and I wouldn’t recommend it to any truck or RV driver.

    The only app I use for GPS in my truck. Was amazing until the last update. Now the screen is strangely separated when I go to the menu on my tablet. Search bar on the left, tabs unevenly layered on the right. No more address input choice, annoying search bar at top of GPS at all times. Not an improvement. You even took away "other city" option when searching for stops? $10 a month and you take features away. How does that make sense?

  • CoPilot deserves to have at lease a five rating on the App Store. Nov 10, 2019

    By The Zen Being
    This is my #1, go to truck navigation app for the last past 8 years. It’s very reliable about 90 percent accurate and get the job done. I understand other customers complaints but, nothing isn’t 100 % perfect. What matters is I like it, it’s reliable and it works for me. The key to using this app reliably is mainly how you program it in the settings. The thing I like mostly about this app is; I haul lots of oversized loads across the continental US. Which requires permits and very strict routing. I like the ability to pin drop accurately. And route myself according to how my permits requires me to run. I can go on and on how I appreciate and enjoy using this app but, for now, I will leave it right there.

    Excellent routing choice of routes, several means of transport includin walking? .add a stop if you wantvto visit on route. Set route to your vehicles location so you don't wander sctratching your head trying to find it . set vehicle poition on arrival on plan save as "find my car" activate when you want to find it and you will be routed bsck to your vehicle.

  • Glad it's finally been taken over by a map/GPS company! Jun 7, 2019

    By MarkintheGardens
    We've been using CoPilot for several years now for a GPS while traveling in our RV - ever since Rand McNally abandoned their RV GPS app (we lost $99 on that one). When we bought CoPilot originally, it had several very nice features but when it was first sold off, the new owners (ALK?) unbundled many of the good features and we lost stuff we had already paid for. (Must have been taking lessons from the airlines.😆) Now that Trimble has taken over, our favorite features have returned and it looks like this is going to be a good iteration, as long as they don't get greedy. We give it 4 stars because we just got it and we're not sure how it will work in use but it looks good so far.

  • Almost Great Aug 19, 2019

    By Pilottony
    This app is almost great, some have complained about things they could have fixed in settings, I say learn the app and it’s features/settings before giving a negative review. I am a pilot and use navigation programs for aircraft and they are excellent as you would expect, this app is close but still needs just a bit more work to make it a bit more user friendly. Making a rout you want instead of what the computer wants can be a challenge until you learn the idiosyncrasies of the app. For those who complain about it directing them to a closed road or a low bridge I say this is a driving aid, you are the driver, stay alert stay in front of your vehicle.

  • Needs an update and soon Sep 8, 2020

    By LittleMoe40
    I love this app very much because I travel in an RV so I trust it’s not going to take me through a low overpass but it needs an update and real soon because I haven’t been able to use since last iPhone update. It just keeps crashing whenever I try to enter a destination. It wasn’t a cheap app either so it’s not fair that I haven’t been able to use it on my last two recent trips. I still give it four stars because when it works, it works! Update it please! UPDATE: Copilot finally contacted me and gave me clear and easy instructions to delete and reinstall the app and now it’s working like a charm again. Good customer service even though it’s a little slow.

    Like others I have used this for years but I don't like the new search bar on the map screen as it reduces the visible size of the map. I have mine running all the time even without a route programmed as it warns me of speed cameras but I really don't like the permanent search bar showing as it takes up too much space especially in landscape mode. I don't understand what people are saying about the postcode search as you just put the full postcode into the search bar and it finds ?

  • Good and Bad Oct 13, 2018

    By Sdad07
    This app is so much more flexible than the other gps apps I’ve used! I love that I can control the look of the app, set my preferences, easily change routes,etc. HOWEVER, I don’t like that the routing instructions are frequently wrong and sometimes even dangerous! Yesterday in Philadelphia, it told me to take several turns that were the wrong way on one way streets. Then it tried to get me to drive past my exit, go a mile, make a u-turn and go back to my exit! When I ignored it and just took my exit, it kept trying to route me back until I got 10 miles up the road - then it gave up. I am using the latest version of the app and the latest update of the maps. In summary, love the app most of the time but very frustrated with some of the routing instructions.

  • Had to downgrade Jun 22, 2020

    By Blazinshotguns
    I normally don’t reviews, but in this scenario it’s must for your benefit. This version of the app added an auto renew features, which broke the app, made it completely unusable, because it won’t let us pay for the service. I actually enjoy using this gps service while I’m driving my semi. The solution for me was to downgrade my app to the last version, which was a pain, but it solved the issue. Now Customers love convenience and ease of use, forcing customers to message support to active service is basically shooting yourself in the foot. Creating an avoidable inconvenience and making it difficult for customers to pay just isn’t financially logical. Just downgrade the app from the market till you’re able to resolve this bug.

  • Disappointed Feb 5, 2020

    By JMDXray
    Had read some good reviews but in general have been disappointed with the interface of the app and poor location choices for searches over months we have had the app. St Augustine Florida does not populate as a search choice, for example, (either when trying to plan a route from New England. Any “web” search is just a yelp handcuff. The routing has been good through the tricky parts of CT, NJ and NY pikes, but that is not enough to overcome the inability to give a reasonable destination for initial route planning or when changing a destination on the fly. It would have warranted 4 stars if it were a lower cost subscription or was free. Not likely to renew the subscription.

    I gave it two stars only because it found the address and gave me turn by turn instructions. But that's all. I have tested it on a coast to coast RV trip and it didn't gave me precise and not helpful lane guidance on major intersections or freeway exits. Also, it failed me with hight restrictions in Memphis. Configured 14ft unit hight but it still lead me under a 13"9' overpass. With a 13"6' rig - this was quite a white-knuckle moment.

  • A once good app no more Jul 5, 2020

    By Jimmymjr
    I’ve used this app for around 10 years, always accurate, I swore by it and promoted it to others even purchasing the payed app. In 2019 I was traveling in North and south Carolina and it had a few glitches. I upgraded it to the RV version thinking it would correct the issue but it did not, not only is it wildly inaccurate it had me leaving the interstate to make a u turn and then right back on it for no reason at all. The “rv routing” had me on one lane roads in the middle of nowhere again taking me down a road to make a u turn for no reason and then right back on the road I was already on. I looked at Apple Maps and the routing copilot took me on was almost 100 miles out of the way by the time I had to back track and go the correct rout. I really liked copilot and hate that is changed to a mostly useless app. And yelp for a search engine is useless as well. I have to find what I’m looking for on google and then add the address. I am very disappointed
