Sony-Xperia-Z-with-CoPilotLive-UKBelieve it or not, but Google Maps does not represent the final word when it comes to navigation apps on Android. Yes, Google Maps is free and does most things very well, but the inability to download maps for whole countries offline allows competitors such as CoPilot and TomTom to fill the gap.

The good news is that we have just received word that the CoPilot Live Android app has just been updated to support the Sony Xperia Z and other handsets with 1080p displays such as the HTC One and upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4.

CoPilot is a navigation app that has been around for many years, we remember using the Symbian version many years back and was always impressed with its routing and simple UI. The Android app comes in two flavours: 1) CoPilot Live Premium that offers voice-guided GPS navigation and live traffic updates and 2) CoPilot GPS which has free offline mapping but requires an in-app purchase for voice navigation.

There is also a 10% off sale on the CoPilot Europe maps at the moment which ends on 8 April. This brings the CoPilot Live Premium Europe app down from £34.99 (€39.99) to £29.99 (€34.99). If you don’t need the wide European coverage, there is also CoPilot Live Premium Western Europe (includes UK + Western Europe) which can be had for £25.99 (€32.99). The European maps upgrade in the CoPilot GPS app can be had for £19.49 (€24.99). You can find more details here.

    So if I buy this application I will get real-time navigation through GPS signal on my phone without the need of a data connection if I’m in a foreign country. Although I never use navigation on my Phone my father is struggling with google maps a bit. So is this one also user-friendly? (It is for Xperia S)

    Yes that’s right. We’ve often used it when travelling and as the map everything is downloaded before your journey, as soon as you have your map you don’t need to worry about unnecessary data charges.

  • Sonnnyy . i bought my XZ and got a headset with it the Sony mdr-1r. beautifull headset
    i also got 2 wires with it a normal headset cord and 1 with controls on it for volume and calls while headset is on. all good stuff. no my problem is that the cord that gives u control only works on I phone.@#?? wtf.. yes only on iphone . it doesnt even work with the XZ it came with. i love sony u can even call me a fan. but things like this is why sony will keep lagging behind. are u giving me a hint to go buy an iphone? why do you make products that work on apple but not on your own devices. apple never made anything for sony if i can remember. i had 2 XZ’s bricked(SOD) waiting on the 3th replacement from carrier. all that i can handle but sony acting like a iphone or samsung fan , thats the end of my android existence btw. update is preventive not currative u need hardware ajustments after SOD
