  • Still old maps

    Don't buy this app, hasn't been updated for 2 years now. Still got the old highways on the maps.
  • Best SA GPS I've seen

    By Justin Lawrence
    Very impressive on iPhone 4. It has great looking street nav, website integration, contact integration, speed limit display and lots more. I ran it head-to-head against my Garmin Nuvi 200W and it kicks Garmin's butt: locates satellites quicker, gives more informative prompts, looks better. Four gripes: 1. Address input needs work. Looks like a clunky matric Delphi project, does not utilise Google Live and does not add any AI to the process. This was the only disappointing area and made me miss my Garmin. 2. I wonder though why you can select an address from a contact but cannot save an address to a contact. How odd. 3. Setup menu is a little disjointed, with non standard navigations, but not crazily so. 4. No traffic integration. I'd definitely recommend this app.
  • Not very useful as names are out of date

    By yufasa
    Some city and road names have changed in South Africa since 1984 and this app still cannot find the new names. (Mandela drive in Emalahleni (Witbank) is just one). Don't get me started on POI's, it could not find hotels or restaurants. (StayEasy and Brazenhead in Emalahleni, just to name some) The app does not support text to speech, who doesn't anymore? They do mention the ability to purchase the option, but not available yet? The app is also not very intuitive to use. Access to the iPod interface is buried three levels deep. Easier just to exit app and return as multitasking now works... I could live with some of the apps shortcomings, but the map data is not up to date and that is a major failure... Have since bought the TomTom app and it is a great improvement. Wish I can get my money back for this junk.
  • Excellent - on the 3GS

    By WierdAl
    After reading a couple of reviews on websites I decided to spend the money on this software. In a word, excellent. The maps are up to date, it is responsive, the routes it chooses (well at least the ones I have tried) all make sense an Points of Interest are very comprehensive. If you are thinking of getting a turn by turn based sare, it is definitely worth the money.

    Until Co-Pilot I used Google Maps on my iPhone for navigation, and I wasn't expected much more. Google Maps is slow to update your position, uses data to download the maps, doesn't talk, and the screen blacks out if you don't keep touching it. Co-Pilot is a proper turns your iPhone into a proper navigation device: - "Live" updating of your position - The maps are on your phone, so there is no data use - Voice prompts etc My only criticism is that the user interface is not immediately obvious out of the box. There are a number of icons and terminology that I'm going to have to read up on before I fully understand the system.
