    Does this free upgrade apply to European customers as well? I have the bought the app from the Finnish store, along with some maps for Europe.

    Monthly map updates have not been provided since March and the last actual quarterly update was in February for Q4 2011 changes. When, perhaps will, map updates resume? There is a 45-day guarantee on implemented map corrections that were submitted but we are long past that for corrections submitted in March or most of April.

      Don’t hold your breath Les. I submitted map changes in March and haven’t seen any updates since the February changes on March 19th. My repeated emails and support tickets are ignored and remain unanswered to this day. That’s right, I jhave not received a single response to my submissions. Their 45 day Mapsure guarantee is a joke. This guarantee is the sole reason I chose this over other GPS programs. Big mistake.

      Hi Mike,

      This is for CoPilot Live v8 customers only, are you using the same CoPilot ID that you were using for your CoPilot Live v8 app?

    Hi. I have upgraded both my USA and UK versions of CoPilot 8 to CoPilot GPS on my iPhone and love the new UI. My only question is I still have both “old” CoPilot 8 software installed on my iPhone and – as they take up almost 2Gb combined space – can I ask: Now that I have CoPilot GPS working, can I delete the old v8 software & free up some room on my iPhone? Thanks & keep on making a great product, Jason

    I didn’t get the latest update (CoPilot Live USA & Canada version within the 1 month window it was provided. Will I still be able to upgrade CoPilot GPS with all the promised bells and whistles to those who downloaded the update?

    I was very happy with v8 for my Iphone 4 and do not wish to upgrade to the new HD version. I paid for all European maps (I live Italy/Switzerland border), and 3D navigation. This new free version misses all of these features (there doesn’t even seem to be any cover for Switzerland at all). I’d like my old version back as I had to restore my Iphone. Please could you tell me how to do this.
    Thanks in advance for your understanding.

    I have bought both the GB and Europe maps for my Copilot 8 Live – will these still work with GPS or will they be automatically downloaded and updated accordingly?
