Co Pilot vs Garmin XT
      #30981 - 08/01/08 10:07 PM

Which one is better of those two? Accuracy, fast response, and ease of use? Also, if I am correct, they both come with the card. I have some programs now in my card. Can I copy and paste to one of these GPS card, or do I have to reinstall all the programs again? Thank you.

Personally, I prefer CoPilot. The user interface is very logical and it's got large buttons that are easy to use in a car. The male voice is very natural and clear-- it''s easy to hear and understand in the car (even though he does sound a little like Agent Smith from The Matrix ). Both products ship on a microSD card and with CoPilot you can copy the contents of the card to a larger card if you wish (which I did so I could have all my movies, music, apps and GPS software on a single card). Garmin doesn't allow this (some sort of copy protection I imagine) . Thus you might not be able to put your programs on their card either.

Can CoPilot or Garmin utilize the built in GPS in the phone? On the other word, should I worry about compatibility issue when buying one of these products? I look at the compatibility on CoPilot's website, and I am surprised that it says compatible for the phone that doesn't have a built in GPS. Perhaps a typo?

Both products work with phones that have a GPS as well as phones that don't (you'd use an external Bluetooth GPS for those phones that don't have one built-in).
