So far very accurate 5/5
Just like the title, I’ll update soon as they slip lol, I hate you can’t buy the subscription like before, since paying yearly they better be on their A-game
Great app 5/5
I have been using this all for many years, locally, in rental cars (big $$ saver). Best app purchase I’ve ever made hands down. I even use this over my installed navigation system, it’s more accurate.
Update, update 1/5
You need to update your maps
I update reviews! 3/5
By big F little u
I have noticed that since the truck version was integrated to this version that when choosing a route that isn’t the first one copilot initially suggests the app has a tendency to automatically swap back?
In this industry we do not have room for error whatsoever. NONE.. have you ever tried driving one of these trucks? Ever had to turn around after missing a turn? it’s kind of a pain.
Also the app STILL tells me to stay on the interstate almost every time there is an exit that goes on a U.S. highway!! FIX THIS PROBLEM FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! If it’s not a problem then at least give the user the option to cut that crap off without having to mute the voice navigation entirely! When I listen to my radio show I don’t want it interrupting every 10 minutes for that when I need to stay on that interstate for hundreds of miles. I constantly update my reviews so there is no getting away from me on these issues. Once fixed I will update to reflect this to the potential users of your app.
I can’t access truck profiles anymore well I never could with the new App can you all please help me
False advertising 1/5
The Ap appears to be free. After taking a full 24 hours to download, and using all of my WiFi data, it opens with the option to continue with your 14 day free trial or buy the Ap! I didn’t even look at the price, just immediately deleted.
Poor map data 2/5
This app is missing lots of data. The aa few roads with speed limits and what they have is out of date. I can’t find many addresses and what they do find is off by hundreds of feet.
Needs lots of work, better data, more recent data, better accuracy... and more. Maybe a few revisions from now it will be ok to use. Not ready for primary use at this point.
Please optimize for iPhone Max
Too Long to Download 2/5
OMG, how freaking long does it take to download a map? Trying to download Eastern US and it has been 24 hours and only 51% complete. Sitting on my home Wi-Fi and downloading is terrible. Ridiculous how slow the download is. Not worth the wait.
Won’t do anything unless you create an account 1/5
I don’t like apps that won’t f######g do anything until you spend time giving away your personal information. I like to take them out for a spin first. This app insists on making me sign in.
By Skate Escape
The ONE thing that I like about this app is that I can still use it when I’m offline and/or out of cell range, but that’s the ONLY thing I like about it.
It will rarely find businesses nearby when I search for one. I cannot figure out how to display an address from my favorites. Once it’s in there, I can’t find a way to see it again! Editing doesn’t even show it and when I arrive at a destination, I sometimes need to see the address to know which building!
It’s really hard to find features I need (if they even exist on this app) such as finding an alternate route to get around a road closure, and I haven’t figured out how to show a route starting from any location other than where I am at the moment.
It’s an incredibly frustrating app to use!
I recommend this app to anyone and everyone. 5/5
By gone crazi
Flawless directions. Very accurate on eta and notifications. Maps are downloaded so you don't need wifi or burn up your data.
If you drive or hike a lot get this app.
It's way better than rand or all the other apps and brands I have used.
I’ve been using ALK for years, even when I had to use it on a laptop before the phones. Pc miler.
Since I can’t find the answer in the app or a place to ask support in the app I’m asking here.
I paid over 150.00 $ for the truck app and every year for traffic. That three hundred + bucks was for life. Are you gonna honor that or are you expecting us to pay again monthly or yearly?
Yo he usado copilot truck desde hace 19 años y estoy muy contento con el programa es muy bueno 100% lo recomiendo
Used to love this app 1/5
By A Storm Fan
I have used and bragged about copilot to my friends for years. However, this recent up grade is terrible. Not only was I forced to upgrade just when I needed to use the app off line, the conversion was complex and I had to re-enter all of my favorites individually as they would not transfer over. Then, and only then, did to learn that the find feature to access my favorites and other items is now a “premium”. Such a basic function now with the premium cost. Ugggg.
Now, just went to upgrade, so I could use the search feature. Only upgrade includes online access. The best feature of copilot was being able to navigate off-line. If I wanted to be online and burning through data why use this when Google maps and other online services are available. I think I’m done with copilot. Very sad.
Seems to do a good job. 4/5
Time will tell how good it is once I start touring the country on the bike this summer. But I’m impressed so far. It is certainly better than those from some of the big name companies.
Company will steal your money 1/5
If you like good customer service buy a store bought gps. This company is joke and doesn’t care after you’ve given them your business.
When it's working 100% I love it. 4/5
I've only had small annoyances with the app; tech support was slow and we're not able to resolve either issue.
The first issue was my location marker was the size of dime. I did a from scratch rebuild on the iPad and that resolved it.
The second issue was current, active traffic has not worked for around a year.
They were not able to resolve that issue either.
Today I installed the new app,, transferred the settings and I had 12 days left on active traffic.
I paid the $9.99 for another year to save the trouble of getting them to take action.
At first.the app was buggy as heck but it's pretty good now.
Outside of slow and In infective tech support I like the app.
However, I am currently not purchase the trucking add on.... So I guess I'll go without it.
I use google maps for active traffic and backup routing. I guess I could just use google but there are features I don't want to go with out.
I've been using the app for several years.
Avoiding Interstates not available 3/5
I rarely use interstate highways on my RV. It is extremely difficult to exclude in this app. I can select avoid, but only for a few miles. I am planning a route of which Imam very familiar as a test route. Most everything is great, including offline maps. Would like elevation profile though.
Just too much trouble to exclude I75 from ATL to Orlando for example. I want to use 441 most of the way. WHY cannot I set a road as preferred!
Why is the app not working I cannot put it in truck mode it only going in car
Some bad roads 3/5
The app sometimes takes you down restricted routes... just look at your atlas and see before you head out .... with a few updates it will be great
Absolute garbage 1/5
This app is way too complicated. I bought it years ago and loved it, but I guess they decided to make confusing adjustments that not even a cartographer could understand. I wouldn’t throw away my money on this.
RV owners beware. This app now a ripoff 1/5
I’ve been using this app with an RV profile for over three years. It has kept me and my RV safe. Their latest update is a disaster. No RV profile. No longer can you trust this app. Instead the shameless developers have opted to make me buy the truck app. Very unfortunate.
Would be good but no Apple Car Play 2/5
It is a good navigation system especially when there is no cell service but the subscription service is expensive when Google and Waze gives it free and there is not Apple Car Play which means I rarely use it.
Perfect app gps 5/5
By thanx alot1000000
It’s perfect app I using it every day but I can’t see speed limit streets , if it’s possible please tell me how customizable it thanx
Rip Off 1/5
What a rip off. June 16, 2018 I purchased CoPilot through the Apple App Store, in January 2019 I’m informed that the version I purchased was being retired! And, to login or go to the App Store to obtain the replacement App. I was unsuccessful when attempting to login and submitted my email to have my password reset, that was three days ago, still waiting. Since I’m leaving with my RV, & couldn’t wait any longer, I went to the App Store to obtain the replacement app (CoPilot GPS). I downloaded the app, no charge along with the North America Maps. After setting up the App for the particulars for my RV I’m informed that I have a 14 day trial period before having to pay for the App. Again what a rip off - I cannot recommend this app.
Latest version 1/5
Used this for years - no problems. After update, the app is very difficult to use. It is very slow. NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO SEARCH FOR PLACES NEAR A DESTINATION. Three steps backwards from the previous version. I wish I never upgraded.
I also upgraded to to paid version on one iPad. Unlike other apps, it tells me I need the paid version on the second iPad when I want to save a trip. At this point I think -1 star would be generous.c
Now I see RV profile has been removed. Man are they getting greedy. I originally bought this for RV use. I am not giving them any more money. Between two gps's and a map I will find my way.
Update: Now to get RV navigation I have to pay a yearly subscription. I definitely feel ripped off. I originally purchase this for RV. Now I have to pay yearly? Fat chance! I wish I could give this a -5 stars.
I don't subscribe to software. I buy it outright or forget it.
Missing Copy/Paste and Proper iOS Integration 1/5
I use lengthy, randomly-generated passwords for all of my “Internet accounts”, and use a password manager to store them.
Logging into this app is a PITA, because the developers have not properly implemented a basic copy and paste functionality. They also aren’t using current-generation iOS integration that seamlessly makes password manager functions available to the app.
To the developers:
1) implement copy and paste.
2) update your app to take advantage of current-generation iOS features.
Screwed me 1/5
I paid $50 for their RV specific app and they then killed it and no refund!
Still only had yelp to search 2/5
It’s a good thing no one ever wants to search for anything other than restaurants. Looking for a place? No simple google search, you better hope it’s on yelp, because that’s all the “search online” so-called feature lets you do. And you better already know what city it’s in, or you can’t find it anyway, because you can’t do a search without first putting in the city you want to search in. It’s just stupid.
Abysmal Experience 1/5
Wasted time inputting my RV info and then found it was impossible to search on the very first address I tried, a popular RV resort, to plan a trip.
Completely broken app...again! 1/5
By Dashcam junkie
Upgraded app completely broken. Unable to open app on any device signed into my account. This happens every time app developer overhauls their app lineup. After YEARS of trial and error you would hope developer would learn not to use us as a staging platform.
Active Traffic has been degraded 2/5
Active Traffic used to indicate traffic conditions on the next 100 miles. Noticed during my holiday travels that the app now only shows traffic conditions for 60 miles. This degradation is not helpful for my trips along the I-95 corridor. Please restore the 100 mile traffic bar.
I see what you did 1/5
Instead of updating the app you made a new one and forced us to repurchase the new one
Pretty well non intuitive 2/5
By Gerry Rosebery
Let’s face it most of the time we are all using Google Maps or Apple Maps via Siri for navigation. Siri is automatic and Google maps very easy to use. I have this App because I don’t always have data available overseas especially. However I find the App completely non intuitive and sometimes downright hostile.
Basic features upgrade? 1/5
Been using Copilot for 5+ years and just a week ago it suddenly stopped working. When I open the app it tells me I need to upgrade ($15/yr!) and it won’t let me access my favorites or even set a route anywhere.
Used to be free. 1/5
I’ve been using this app for years to help route my day out. Never used it for navigating so I can’t speak on that. Now you need to pay for premium service to even look up an address. I will be uninstalling and using my garmin from now on. It’s too bad. They had a good thing going
I’m so sad about this app right now. I’ve been using CoPilot for 5 years now. I’ve loved that it’s free and does not use my data at all. Well a couple days ago, I fire this app up and it’s telling me I have to use the “basic features” and that to even use the app I have to “upgrade”. Absolutely just crushed, what was completely free and such a breeze and made routing my days so simple and amazing...overnight they flip it completely and now I can no longer use this. Such a shame. This was one of my favorite and most used apps for work. You messed up CoPilot, you messed up.
So far severely flawed - positive update 4/5
Customer support was really helpful and the situation of not finding my home address has been resolved by downloading another correct map.
Looks good now, I just need to get back to the States end of January to take it on a test ride.
Trying to get started with the new app I couldn’t even enter my home address. It would not find it (it is simple and found by any other app).
It doesn’t even find my hometown Charlotte, NC - a 1.5 million metro and the biggest city in North Carolina. What’s up with that?
Also positioning the cursor by pressing down on the keyboard on my iPhone 7 does not work.
The app still needs quite some improvement.
Latest update breaks RV functions, deletes paid features 2/5
This company has lost my trust. I was happy to pay for a premium subscription to this app which was admittedly cheaper than it could’ve been, but on the latest update they deleted critical features, apparently moving them to a MUCH more expensive optional subscription. And I found out the hard way when the app tried to take me under a low underpass that the prior version would’ve avoided.
I’m very upset that my prior purchase is rendered worthless. If they did that once before, why should I trust them again? Beware that if you pay for an annual subscription this company, you may not get what you pay for.
Latest Update Screwed Loyal Users.. 1/5
I’ve used CoPilot GPS for years and had my routing profiles set up and ActiveTraffic subscription set. I’ve submitted a number of map updates along the way. The latest update deleted my custom routing profiles and now I can’t recreate them because the RV option was removed and forced into a subscription, apparently.
As soon as my ActiveTraffic is up, I’m done with CoPilot. The only thing holding me right now is everything is still in tact on my Android device.
Pity, it was such a good product.
Carplay support 4/5
Great app but really needs Carplay support. I find that I am using other map programs more due to the integration.
Longtime Copilot user - mostly good, but a few deficiencies 3/5
Originally bought Copilot 10 years ago for my iPhone 3G. Regular updates of have been decent, but I have 4 complaints (minus 1/2 star for each)
1) The voice doesn’t speak everything you would like to know which is super annoying and forces your to look at the screen, which is fine if you are a passenger, but not so if you are driving. Instead of saying, “In two miles, exit right on 247 B” like it should, it will only say “In two miles, exit right.”
2) While having an active destination being routed, you cannot zoom out, and have bird’s eye view of your route. I tried in both 2D and 3D views and neither would function.
3) No Apple Watch integration... would love to be tapped on my wrist when my turn approaches
4) no CarPlay integration
My go to travel app 3/5
BEWARE: The latest update has removed the RV Profile. I am not sure if they have put it in a premium addition but I can no longer find it in the update or as an in-app purchase. I’ve been using Copilot for several years and it has always been my goto app especially when I get lost. That being said, use with extreme care, as you should with all navigation devices. For the majority off the time Copilot has been very good throughout Canada and the US as I travel very extensively. However, I once let my guard down and nearly ran out of gas a long way from any town. The discovery was made when it routed me to a graveled forest service road. It was 60 miles to get back on track and to the nearest gas station. Check other resources and question the choices made by Copilot. It makes mistakes too and when it can be a life or death situation use extra caution when vectored through less traveled routes. Still, it has been a valuable app and has helped me many times, especially being in the proper lane for an exit. I still recommend it and with the voice directions. I do not recommend the Apple TTS voice as that will drive you insane with annoyance as it reads every little detail. I go with Lisa. I removed a star because the dropped the RV profile. Also the information for this app is incorrect as it still includes RV specs not found in the app. This is misleading. I tested the update on an older device and will not be upgrading on my new devices because I use the RV profile for highway speed and preferences. Don’t trust height or propane as the premium RV customers warn in their reviews.
Rubbish they just want money, when will you pillage and r***e me ? 1/5
Zero stars, I prefer to use my in car nav system rather than this .
Latest update asks you to buy voice guided navigation , erm this is used in car what point is a mute read only navigation.
This is now a very poor company with even worse help.
NO I AM NOT USING TRIAL VERSION
Repeat I AM NOT USING TRIAL VERSION please repeat after me !! Rather than sending stupid replies , really makes one wonder who you are and if you listen to paying customers !
please do not make assumptions
I DONT WANT TO KEEP GIVING YOU MONEY FOR AN APP I HAVE PAID FOR !! This is a poor business plan , the golden goose cannot be milked continuously !!
No more RV support in northeast 1/5
What the heck happened? An update is supposed to be better not worse. I paid for this app because it helped with towing RV. Now it’s useless because “it’s not supported” anymore.
You removed the RV Profile in version 10.10.0.535 1/5
I have been using this app for several years and the latest version has now rendered it useless. I assume it is to force those of us using the app for RV navigation to buy the more expensive version. I will be shopping for a navigation app, but will be looking at competitors since ALK Technologies has cast me and a number of others adrift. This is quite the topic on the RV forums and many are as upset as I am.
Long time user 5/5
By Jerry Coleman
I’ve been using CoPilot since 1998. Awesome program. Looking forward to seeing a CarPlay version. Cellphone coverage isn’t that great in my area and to have offline maps would be a huge blessing.
Lost RV Support 2/5
This most recent update deleted all my RV settings and no longer show an RV as a vehicle option. WTH? I’ve been using and recommending this app for over 8 years and you just killed it. After spending money on the premium version, I now am expected to purchase an RV version for another $40. Way to treat current customers. You should at least offer an upgrade at a discount for current users.
Bad App 1/5
Seems to be missing places that I can find on MyDrive by TomTom. Missing major roads headed to my work from my house.
