Was just wondering if anyone had experience using CoPilot and if so how good is it? Also, how decent is the GPS on the Galaxy S, is there any way it should be positioned for it to work at it's best?

I know a couple of people who use CoPilot and they think it's fantastic. I haven't used it yet but will be when the need arises. I'd guess that like most equipment that requires a gps signal to function, it should be near a window. My Galaxy S has always picked up a gps signal far quicker than both of my sat nav's, though they are getting on a bit now. Couldn't say how accurate it is though as I've never used it to it's full potential yet.

Copilot Rocks its not like google maps as the maps are down loaded on you phone so it does not use your data and also the voices you can understand, I used to use TomTom This Beats it hands down, Very easy to use as well.
If you are going to use any sat nave get a incar charger so it does not kill your battery
The others are just way over priced and to complicated

I use Co pilot regularly , never had a problem with it. Even better and more accurate since I have been using the leaked version of Gingerbread, so when the official update comes out co pilot should be even better.

Navigation uses very little data, I did a test when it was first introduced to investigate concerns that it would be a data muncher, and from what I recall it used less than 2mb if that on a long trip where I deliberately took alternative routes forcing it to recalculate.
The ONLY reason co-pilot makes sense is if you travel often and want to avoid roaming charges using navigation. Take into account the regular improvements google makes to maps as well, I simply don't understand the need for third party navigation software.
Perhaps I should have asked first why you're considering it.
