Fans of the app have said:

 Best Truck Navigation

“This new version brings big improvements but some features such as ‘nearest town and current road display’  is no longer available and the trip preview no longer shows the entire route unless stop-offs are set as waypoints. The app is not perfect but its easy enough to work around its minor downfalls. Still the best truck routing option available.”

 Very well!

“Found all my picks and drops. No regrets of purchasing this product. Been close to 2 years of use and no problem. Thanks copilot! HTC EVO.”

Excellent !!!

“I have always Copilot’s features and outline were Wonderful and couldn’t get any better. But I was wrong! They Have Made the Best Yet. A Must Have for Truckers !!!”

Great alternative

“This product is definitely worth the money…its cheaper than a stand alone unit and works great on my motor Xoom…..and it calculates routes fast too thanks to the huge processor…….yeah the maps were a bit big to download..but worth the wait…. because my tab is wifi only and can’t run Google maps in the middle of no where with out a data connection…”
