    Decided to give CoPilot7 a try for a few days and see how it compares with my trusty Nav4All. Nicest thing about CoPilot7 is the colorful graphics. But I eventually found myself having to look too long at the screen at intersections. I often found some lag time for the program to figure out exactly where I was. Route recalculation took a lot longer.
    But the biggest complaint to me is its lack of updated maps. There are changed intersections that have been around now for a couple years or more and CoPilot did not know that. However, Nav4All successfully navigated me through a complicated mall complex that opened up within the past year, even around the private "roundabouts"!!

    So I've un-installed CoPilot (it is a 1.5 meg program). After deletion, I noticed that its various spoken directions were still installed as ringtones. I had to manually go through and delete them. They were apparently the "John" voice that I had chosen but the program never did correctly switch from the default female voice.

    Anyway, that's my personal experience, for whatever it's worth!

    Do you need a data connection with CoPilot 7 or does it run from the sd card?

    CoPilot requires a data connection.

    Hi organman,

    I was very dissapointed to hear that you are not happy with Copilot7. But my story is very different from that. You said that Copilot7 are lack of updated maps.But when i bought my Copilot7 from PressDigital It all camed fully updated. I love the view of 3D maps.

    So that's my experience with it.

    Bye...!

    I use CoPilot 7 everyday and it doesn't have 3D maps... not the Blackberry version atleast.

    You must be on a WinMo phone.
