Ok folks, after doing a lot of research and because TomTom is late (and expensive based on NZ store) I finally gave in to a satnav app, my first purchase was CoPilot's NA version. Setup: Using an iPhone 3G with 3.0.1. Have a Bracketron Grip-iT airvent mount with direct sky view and a Griffin car charger. The app is 1.12GB, it just took me 25mins to download the app. Be warned though while I was downloading this app, my iPhone was connected to iTunes. When my first try of download finished, something odd occurred, iTunes froze. I had to close it down then redo the whole download process (yes I lost that 1.12GB worth of download). I tried it again for the second time with my iPhone connected and heck it still froze my PC (lol) so what I did was disconnect my iPhone and download it again and finally it successfully finished, so be warned: do not connect your iPhone while downloading this app it will just screw up iTunes for some reason. Installation from iTunes to the iPhone took nearly about 30-40 minutes, of course you have to consider this app was over 1GB plus you might want to do a restart of your iPhone once it's over. First time that I ran the app, as suggested on their description on iTunes that WiFi connection is preferred to activate it, it asked me for a CoPilot user ID which I believe is your email and password, it was hard to type since it wasn't on a QWERTY keyboard yet (why o why) plus the fact the were small. I think the User ID and password is for their CoPilot Live feature (a premium extra service). Once that was done it asked for the language I preferred and voice preference. Exploring Settings I read the manual but somehow I want to let you guys know how I tweaked mine for a better routing experience. If you've actually noticed, the first time you run the app you'll be greeted. That initial screen, has actually a very very nice feature in which I don't understand why it can only be found on the initial run screen. I'm talking about their Live Local Search, that Magnifying Lens with a sort of red wifi icon. That actually connects to your data connection (Wifi, 3G or E) and searches for whatever you want. IT IS HANDY! I just don't get why it's only found on the first initial run screen. Route Profile: Settings can be found by tapping the lower left hand side, it's on the second panel. Basically based on my research, CoPilot's default route profile sucks (which is on Economic) so I suggest you create one yourself. This can be done by selecting Route Profile and adding a new one. Mind you I placed Freeways as Strongly Favor and Divided Highways as Strongly Favor too. Toll Roads, Ferries are avoided then the scenic route that's up to you. Info Bar: After tweaking with your Route Profiles, let's go to your Info Bar (still on settings) This is the blue bar that will be found on the bottom of your screen once you're navigating. You can select either Single, Dual or Loop Display. Basically you have the option to choose what kind of info to be displayed. I prefer Single Display - Current road, but like I said there's lots of options so feel free to pick yours! Map Styles: I like this because it let's you choose the color you want to be displayed during Day mode or Night mode. It offers you more than five color choices, each varies on the color you like. I went for Continental on Day mode and Autumn (default) on Night mode. They have an American colored map (which I didn't really like), Autumn, British, Continental, Ember, Forest, International, Ocean. As the name suggests you get the picture. POI Display: Lets you choose if you want the POIS to be displayed when you're Stopped, Always, or Never. It will also let you to choose what POIS should be displayed on the app with their huge category list. I haven't really played on the POI on the map (and yes Hotels and Restaurants are swapped, their mistake) but of course it's not as wide but it satisfied what I needed. I suggest using the Live Local Search found on the first screen when you initially run the app Guidance and Turn Warnings: This quite puzzled me, unfortunately when the iPhone is on silent mode, you won't hear the Voice Turn by Turn directions so I suggest checking your silent switch first. Guidance and Turn warnings can be initially toggled to the distance to when it will announce it as well. I think after tweaking those you're set to navigating. Planning or Destination I strongly suggest doing this before even driving, you need to change that Routing Type from Economic to Shortest (not Quickest based on experience but you can play with it see what fits you) To do this go tap Destination, just select one from your Contacts and before tapping Go, tap Show Route. This is where you can preview the route for the turn list or route demo, but most importantly go to Options, tap Routing Type, and change that to Shortest. That way you don't have some crazy routes as some people are suggesting. In previewing a route too, you have the option to select an Arrival Time and even Showing the Fuel Cost (you need to plug the average mileage your car uses and the cost per gallon). Setting a destination from Contacts is somewhat buggy. It won't recognize a "North West" but it will recognize "Northwest". Some people said that the maps are outdated, in which I believe the reason why I can't even find some of my contact's addresses on this app. So be warned when using Contacts. Real time Driving Pros and Cons while driving, I'll start with Cons based on what I've experienced. Cons: Changing from portrait to landscape causes the interface to get "stretched", it does polish after two seconds though Selection from Live Local Search should be in the menu, not by closing the app and running it again Somehow the app lost my location, in a freeway on a clear view of sky, happened three times No TTS folks, it will just announce "Just Ahead, Turn right/left" or "Take Exit" no numbers nor exit names included Yes you'd loose your location after a call Pros: Preview route, very very helpful Gave me the best route that I expected, of course after the tweaks I've done on settings Voice is loud enough, I just used the iPhone speakers while driving and could still hear it The tunnel guidance WORKS like a charm! I'm very impressed. Screen never dimmed out Screen refresh rate is decent Very very interface with colors that will match day/night or what you might prefer They never gave me some weird routes as others claimed, of course I've reached my destination quicker and efficient Things I want them to polish Maps, according to a majority it's outdated but here in WA it's fine Contacts integration, I can't imagine why the default Maps can read it while yours couldn't Please let us use Live Local Search on the Live Services option, not on the first initial runtime screen Greyed out: Lane Assist, Speed Limit, and Safety Alerts (they said Safety cameras coming) Live Traffic (for a premium extra) and the option to avoid congested traffic Text to Speech, we want the street names/exits to be announced for driver safety Polish the GPS reception, QWERTY, and remembering location after an incoming call (update coming) Overall, I rate this app a 3/5 but I'm pretty sure once it's polished this would be the best satnav app that we've been looking for, well worth the price. It offers a LOT of features, they just need to polish it. If you guys have any questions/concerns let me know Thanks for your time reading this.
