I've been using the latest CoPilot v8 with Text to Speech as well as POI lookups through GPRS (internet). Have just successfully imported my regional rail POIs as well as the state's interstate exit POIs.
Had to use the .ov2 format as I couldn't get the .csv format to import ANY POIs; it would only go through the motion but import 0 points.
Was able to edit the imported POIs from within CP8 albeit VERY SLOWLY!
All in all, however, I am very pleased with the latest update. Previous version of CP8 (I upgraded from CP7 the day it was available and also purchased Live Services as soon as it was offered) left a lot to be desired, but this update seems to have fixed almost all the issues for me!
this is the same issue I'm getting with the Android version of CP8
I can't see the OV2 imports but I can see a directory created with POI name
but I can't see them on the map or search for them using Map POI search
About time copilot released a patch to work on Android 2.2 (froyo). Now I am happy with this software as I need to get to unknown places at times
Definitely recommend this app as it is cheap and easy to use!
I have CoPilot v8 for the iPhone & Smart Phone & I cannot rate it enough. Customer service is excellent, product is good. I think it came in the top 5, naturally Garmin came first, but then it costs more. So the trade off is obvious
I tried several navigators in the last, hmm..., 8 years, starting with TomTom, which is my reference point. I drive much in the UK and Europe, so I am looking at the overall usability. The new Copilot Live Premium is not bad in this sense. You can operate it with one hand and without glasses, it has many features well organised in the menu, the quality of routing is good, advanced planning and roadblocks supported, etc.
It has a unique feature of being able to signal the speed and camera alerts even without a route. The only shortcoming is lack of mobile camera POI.
Tested over 6000 miles internationally - I will keep it.
Update. After the admin allowed me to download from this site, and after I disabled the feature in Firefox to tell the sites not to track me, i was able to download the the mobile camera poi file for the UK... A few new cameras appeared on the screen, but many are missing. In fact, the most dangerous locations are not included - where the road is good, no kids/cats, no record about accident black spots, and where the police are hiding particularly well in the bushes. So, I am still looking...
