CoPilot GPS App for Nexus 7 to Enjoy Hassle-free Navigation On The Go
When it comes to navigation app, the obvious choice of Nexus 7 users is the built-in Google Maps app due to its ability to cache map data for offline use. However, the problem with Google Maps is that the user needs to be connected to the Wi-Fi hotspot at the starting of every trip, which limits the use of this navigation app. Therefore, it isnít really a smart choice for the Wi-Fi only Nexus 7 tablet.
A great alternative is CoPilot GPS app for an Android device, which even works when there is no mobile signal. The app stores its maps and directions on-board your tablet, therefore, you will be able to gain access to it at all times. The destination can be selected either manually or through your pre-installed points of interest (nearby shop, hotel and restaurant), and the app will find out the best possible route for reaching to that destination. The info will contain the expected travel time, in terms of driving or walking. In case, the best possible route doesnít interest you, then a viable route can be picked from the other listed possibilities as well. One can also drag and drop the route when a different destination is preferred.
Apart from that, you can also be active on Facebook or Twitter and let your friends know about your whereabouts with just one-click access. In addition, Wikipedia is also included so as to discover more about the places you visit. With that said, CoPilot GPS is excellent alternative to Google Maps for your Nexus 7 tablet with its helpful offline functionality and features. You can get it for free on Google Play Store. Have you used CoPilot GPS app on your Nexus 7 tablet? Do let us what you think.
I just set up CoPilot on my Nexus 7 I will check it out the next couple of days and let you know.
I have used CoPilot on my last 3 Android phones, and really like it. I have been in a number of locations where I could not get a data signal, and could only navigate with CoPilot, Google Maps wouldn't work.
It's nice to know that you have the maps with you, just like a dedicated GPS.
Good luck with the forums
