Yeah the Google cache is only really good for a town or city you know you will be in. I am headed to Asia this summer and I cached the cities I will visit, so Google is great for that. But for things like road trips, not really good if you have no or limited data.

Looked at the reviews for Copilot...almost half of them are 1 star out of 4, which scares me a bit. The complaints were not silly ones either...they were along the lines of wrong addresses, right turns instead of left, etc.

I've not had those problems at all with CoPilot, my only real complaint is that the maps are a few years old in places but so are most other than Google Nav.
