I had Copilot running on my iPad alongside my Garmin so I could watch to see what I liked. I'm very pleased with the quality of mapping although I do have a couple of issues with it

It tells me about speed cameras, but most of them happen to be on roads I'm passing by and not actually on e.g. I'm on a major road and the main road parallel has a camera. Annoying. Also, don't tell me about cameras I've driven past

I'm not keen on the voiceover she has an irritating tone, I'll have to go search for another.

I find maps.me a bit confusing,too much info I think.

Next, I want to try to put my camper contact pois onto Copilot. I got them into my Garmin and they work nicely.

Yes very true. Garmin now show them as accident black spots to get around the problem. I know of people getting a hefty fine for having radar detectors too. Very verboten

I use Henry for my voice Si, I don't need another woman telling me what to do, although she ignores him and talks over him anyway, telling her to shut up works though, but does have it's down side.

I had campercontact and campingcar infos pois on mine, easy enough to put on but a bit of a faff to remove and put an updated one back on. I seem to recall I removed one set but it was still appearing on the menu. Probably something I did wrong but I don't bother with them anymore on my copliot.

 I use the park4night app mainly nowadays but they charge silly money for a download of their poi's so I just transfer the coords across manually to the copilot.

I found park4night and wildcamping were both very useful during my week away, just a bit of a faff going back and forth betwen them on the iPad while driving. I'd rather like the idea of seeing the camping car info coming up immediately on the copilot when we go across the water next year

I have been running Sygic for many years. The Tomtom app is good especially for traffic, but it does not give an overspeed warning until you have exceeded the speed  limit by 3mph.
