CoPilot 6 Q edition is
my new GPS of choice. I have retired my Dell Axim (which used both the CoPilot Live program and the Arkon MobiNavigator). I can
safely say that this is the most complete, easiest and most powerful add-on GPS

To make this system even sweeter- if you are connected to a
hands-free system - the GPS commands come through that handsfree connection. Just how sweet is this? Well, my hands-free connection

the same thing happens. The Q sends the voice of CoPilot through my stereo and I concentrate on where I am driving.

importantly, after navigating several trips and destinations, I can safely say
that CoPilot 6 got me everywhere I needed
to go. Absolutely get the Mini SD card with the entire program and maps -
no more loading maps into your Q - just setup and go.
- easy to use
- a cinch to set
- nice 3D perspective
- speech options and good safety features
features set it apart from the competition. The first truly successful GPS add
on for a Smartphone.
- The included Car charger for the Q did
not charge the Smartphone We have learned that
this is a Motorola issue - not a CoPilot one and that
it is being addressed.
The full package, including the great GPS receiver and the
Mini SD card as well as CD based software is US$349.00. CoPilot 6 Q Edition is also available without the GPS receiver for US$249.00 from www.alk.com
