- I have been looking at a few GPS navigation programs that will allow you to save the maps to you SD card so you don't need to use data. It seems like the most popular are CoPilot, Sygic, and Navigon.
Has anyone used any of these on the SGS2? Which works best? I have an older Garmin (Nuvi 255w) that is starting to die (the audio will cut out randomly) and would love to be able to replace it with my phone (when I get it) since I keep my phone with me at all times.
From what I have seen Sygic looks really good and is about half the price of Navigon (at least for the US). So, anyone tried any of these and would please share their experience?11-13-2011 12:00 AM
- I had Copilot on my last phone (WinMo) and I loved it. I am considering getting it for the GS2 but I haven't done it yet so I can't tell you how it works for GS2. I am not happy with google navigation for two reasons: #1 it uses data and I am limited and #2 the alternate routing doesn't work very well for me.11-13-2011 09:58 AM

- I used Garmin on an old WinMob phone, now I have Navigon and Sygic on my SGS2. Sygic has good features, but seems to have stability problems running on SGS2, shuts down spontaneously.
Navigon is solid and the more I use it I like it. One thing I wish it has in the current version is to be able to directly call a Point of Interest found in a search.11-13-2011 07:31 PM
- I'm using SYGIC and have no problems. I don't use it everyday though. I looked at copilot, navigon, etc. etc......if you look on sygic, their customer support and engineers post frequently trying to fix any issues that arise. They use TomTom maps. No need to be online unless you want live traffic, point of interest details, and such things as that. But for directions... no data usage. Cost was about $15 and well worth it for me.
BTW..there are a couple posts on this by me and some others if you do a search.11-14-2011 08:25 AM
