    I'M SERIOUSLY THINKING OF DOWNLOADING THE COPILOT TRUCK APP ONTO MY SAMSUNG GALAXY TABLET, AT A COST OF £90 FROM GOOGLE PLAY.
    HAS ANYONE ANY THOUGHTS ON THIS ?
    HAS ANYONE GOT COPILOT TRUCK & WHAT DO YOU THINK OF IT??
    HOW DO YOU SECURE A 7" TABLET TO THE DASH ??

    I've used Copilot Live for a good 10 years and no complaints so don't see why that should not work.

    Big difference, I paid £30(ish) for all EU maps last year for the car version.

    You can buy dash mounts for tablets but I knocked one up pretty quickly out of sheet aluminium and it clips in the FIAT map holder.

    Co Pilot is superb. Buy the European maps for about £30, and you can set it for RV type vehicles in Vehicle Preferences. No need for the Truck version IMHO. £90? No need.

    I have it on tablet and Galaxy S4

    I was pleasantly surprised when it did not grumble when I loaded it on two devices.

    They used to, but they have got a lot better since the last updates. I have had it on various phones for years never had a problem swapping, but its even easier now. Now have it on a Nexus 7 for the van, its about the perfect size.

    We downloaded the TomTom App to the I-pad £65 and linked it with Campercontact £5 and it works seamlessly, plus, you only need the I-pad on the dash with no"squinting" at a little satnav.. Highly recommend it.. !!!
