For Copilot, now read CONpilot.
Some 5 years ago I bought the Europe HD package. Works great, wouldn’t be without it. The vehicle profile page allows my to pick “Caravan” (actually an icon showing a motor home). I then set the type of roads I prefer and the speeds I am likely to do on them. I was promised “lifetime” updates. This it transpires to only mean until they decide your package is to be “retired”.
Switching on the other day I was prompted to transfer to the New app. All my licenses, preferences etc etc would be read across. Untrue. On the new version I can no longer set roads/speeds etc. The motor home icon has gone, just a car left. And now they claim roads/speeds are predetermined by them.
I did a test. Plumbing in a journey I regularly make in the UK on the old app it showed I would take 5 1/2 hours in my camper, which is about right. Switch to the new app and Wow, I’m going to get there in just over 4. But NO, mister Copilot, I’m not driving your car, I’m in my much slower camper. But I can no longer set this.
I then find out if I want to retain this feature I need to take out a new yearly subscription for the “caravan” app.
So much for all my licenses etc being transferred. Seems that apps not making enough money are killed off. I will continue using the excellent old HD version until it becomes unusable then look for an alternative.
