"CoPilot Live for North American roads is becoming the little engine that could. At only US$34.99 it is quickly adding new features, and in this latest update has added the coveted text to speech capability. For drivers, that means the nav app will say turn left on Elm street instead of turn left just ahead."
The big change, besides the text to speech capability, is that you are now able to use the iPhone keyboard instead of the one that was within the application, a much needed improvement from what I've read. The biggest complaint about this program, however, is the lack of map data for certain areas, which is a big problem. The company says they are aware and subsequent updates will address this problem. $34.95 USD may not be too bad of a price, but not if the map data isn't correct.
