Unlike Ovi Maps and traditional GPS apps, Google has yet to offer an option that will give you comprehensive map data for a region, sitting on your device. This is because Google depends on you connecting to the web, to download new ad data (you did know that’s how they intend to pay for all this… right?).
CoPilot Live is one of the handful of native GPS apps that were released in spite of Google Maps Navigation. And, they have slashed prices for a limited time on their Android apps. The USA-only version is $4.99.
While these offers may be commonplace on iOS, they are much more rare on Android, due to the smaller supply of autonomous GPS apps. At $5, it can easily provide GPS tracking in a pinch, even if your 3G network is unavailable. The real issue is having enough storage, all of CoPilot’s USA maps check in at around 1.5 GB.
These apps can also be used on many Android non-phone devices with Bluetooth, and a GPS receiver. Click read more for the QR code to jump directly to the Android Market from your phone.
