    You don't need the truck version unless you have a monster RV.
    The standard version has settings for car m/bike motorhome and pedestrian.
    Our van is 7.7 mtrs 5 ton tag axle and the standard version set to motorhome is perfect.
    We use as our main navigator now and we travel all over Europe it was brilliant in Italy and Croatia this year.

    How good is this software? Is there a charge for updated maps?

    Only just playing with it, not had it out on the road yet but it looks quite good, says they try and update at least once a year can't see any additional charges for it.

    I use Co-Pilot on my iPad Mini and it works well.
    A word of warning though, the RV setting won't always alter the route, only the time taken.

    I just tried an experiment by plotting a route near to home that I know has a very low railway bridge. Co-Pilot route was through the bridge.
    I also plotted the same route on my Garmin Camper 760. Set to 'car' it took me under the bridge and routed my via back lanes; just as one would expect.
    With the Garmin set to 'motorhome' it would take me on a longer route via main roads and around the bridge.
    Just shows that switching to a 'motorhome/RV' setting won't always make the difference that you hope.

    Just going back to the original reason for the thread; it is annoying that the Truck version of Co-Pilot is so much more expensive than the car version and there doesn't seem to be a reduced price upgrade. :xsad:

    No charges for updates.
    Also great for planning and altering routes. Theres a hell of a lot on there the more you play and use it the more you learn. Been using it over 2 years now done at least 10 months European travel. Used it alongside a Garmin for the first 6 months but quickly learned Copilot was much better.
    Still haven't used all the features.
    Must try harder.:xgrin:
