CoPilot RV vs CoPilot Truck?

Hi guys, I have CoPilot for RV and no matter what other GPS I try. I always come back to CoPilot. It takes a little getting used to but once you understand the way it works itís pretty seamless. And you canít beat the off line maps.

Have you used CoPilot for truck? It has features the RV version doesnít. Just curious if any differences make it a better GPS for we RV folks?

Thanks

At $40 the app is cheaper of the two. CoPilot RV has some bad reviews: http://www.apprview.com/navigation/copilot-rv-usa/ CoPilot Truck has nothing of interest for RVers unless you must maintain a log book and must stick to USDOT and state approved routes.

Thanks Ray, I thought that may be the case with Truck and your confirmation helps.

I looked at the website with the reviews and most have not been my observation. Itís not taken me down a bad road in my three years of use.

It can be difficult to understand and doesnít save a trip as youíd expect and thatís frustrating. But it always gives two or three ways to go and Their off line maps are fabulous.

The biggest negative of CoPilot RV is you have to be willing to go to their website and spend some time with their videos and FAQís. Once you understand how it works itís never led me wrong.

We’ve used CoPilot RV for the last 2+ years and over 18,000 miles and have not had any problems. The software does take some getting used to in order to plan your trips, but after the first couple it’s a lot easier.

BTW, I would set your RV height at least 6 inches higher than it really is. I used my actual height and it routed me thru a bridge that was only 2 inches higher. I was a little nervous driving under it.

My only frustration is that you almost always have to enter a street address rather than search by campground. They have a very limited number of places in their database.

Thatís a really good idea and Iíll make to change to mine.

I completely agree and Iím frankly surprised CoPilot hasnít change it? You know that many people have commented to them about it. An ongoing company should listen. No other GPS works that way and one has to wonder why they chose to do it that way?

Once you get used to it it great and I think the learning curve is worth it.
