• We have 5 copies of CoPilot to give away!


    Congratulations to the winners, who have received a message from me in their private message box!

    We have 5 copies of CoPilot to give away, the leading Android onboard navigation app that works on practically any Android device (unlike some alternatives we could mention)...

    CoPilot is available in two versions. CoPilot Live Premium is a paid app which offers full-featured voice-guided GPS navigation with advanced 3D map views and live traffic as standard. CoPilot GPS is a free app which includes powerful trip planning and offline maps. Turn by turn navigation is available via in-app purchase. We're giving away the Premium version, of course - both are available from the Play Store.

    In order to be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is leave a comment / reply telling us a little bit about you and the most memorable drive you've done. We'll pick a winner at random after the end of Friday 19th October. Simple!

    Good luck! :)

    Hi all, I'm Gavin, huge Android fan, currently using a HTC OneX and a SGS Note II - love Modaco and the community as well!, Work in the IP Telecom industry.

    My most memorable drive was driving to France after passing my driving test without the aid of a satnav (expensive back then) or map! (silly really!).

    Managed to get lost on the roads around Calais and drive round a roundabout the wrong way (oops)!, but picked up plenty of freshly baked french bread and bree - that made it home safely.

    Since then, most driving has been in the UK and wont venture outside of it without being properly prepared!

    Most memorable drive? Could be driving an 35' RV alone from one corner of the US to the other. 2,844 miles from CT to CA. In 5 days! A lot of it along (or close to) the old Route 66.

    Back then (2000) i used yahoo maps directions, printed out on paper (old school!). Managed to not get lost (too much). Just had to remember to keep the pages in strict order, and not drop them out the window...

    Sleeping in truck stops, driving 12 hours a day, the last 500 miles with a busted passenger window (exploded for no reason!), and loving that gas was still $1 a gallon. Got home and slept for 2 days.

    I drove almost 15'000 Km in a Toyota Hiace van around Australia, up the east coast, into the middle and back along the south coast to Sydney, in two and a bit months, almost 10 years ago.

    A SatNav would have been most helpful in avoiding some of the stupider navigational errors ;-)

    Hi,

    I'm David, a mad android fan (though of course that went without saying). My most memorable drive was on a visit to the states last November. Having started in Vegas (and no, I wont tell as what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas) I drove across the Hoover dam and in to Arizona. A nights stop at the Grand Canyon was unbelievable and one of the best drives I had ever been on, that is, until I went further south down to Sedona (Land of the red rocks) and as I left the interstate at Flagstaff to head south I headed through the mountains at Oak Creek and was totally bowled over at the beauty!

    What made the whole road trip though was driving back a couple of days later. As we ascended through the mountains again, the cloud came in and I drove through snow for the next 3 hours before having a rest stop on Route 66!

    What a great drive indeed!

    Hi,

    My name is Kyle. My most memorable drive was returning from University in Dundee back to west yorkshire (about 300 miles) for the 1st time by myself. It was winter and as I was driving, it was dark and I got caught in a blizzard. Nerve-wrecking at the time, but I got back eventually.

    I'm a 41 year old Android fan, got the HTC Magic when it first came back in the days. Now I have a Samsung Galaxy S2.

    Back in 1989, when I was Inter-Railing, me and and two friends rented motorbikes and decided to drive to the top of the highest mountain on Corfu, Greece.

    After a looong while (the road was awful) we arrived at the top, took a leak, took some pictures and turned back down the mountain.

    All in all, we stayed up there for maybe 5 minutes! :-P

    It's still one of the trips that makes me smile!

    Hi there. Been an avid android user now for about 6 years. I have used the on board google maps and navigation many times, mostly since i realised that my wifes actual sat nav was completely useless and would just attempt to get me within a couple of miles of where i wanted to get to. I do a lot of travelling around the UK to meetings etc as part of my job, and so a sat nav is a vital bit of kit. Whilst google is great, from what i have already seen, CoPilot live would make driving slightly more enjoyable again.

    Most memorable drive was going to work at around 4am in the australian outback!! stunning sunrise's, incredibly hot and a dead, rotting kangaroo at the side of the road! ah the memories.

    Hi,

    I'm Probal from India. Running on Android for the last couple of years. My introduction to MoDaCo was through the ZTE Blade forums, Still use that phone from time to time and it's a wonder that a 100 gbp phone now has Jelly Bean with ver 4.1.2 even before many Nexus variants.

    My favourite drive was to the highest motorable road in the world (approx 18000 ft) at the Khardung La pass in the Ladakh region of North India. We had a half broken car, no GPS (there was no EDGE or 3G there and GMaps didn't have offline maps then), an almost useless paper map but nerves of steel. The views of the Himalayas and the Tibetan plateau were needless to say, breathtaking.

    I would encourage other Android & adventure lovers from across the globe to come and visit these regions of India most often not ventured by foreigners.

    Cheers!

    I'm Paul, a web developer and big android nut.

    My most memorable drive was from Stuttgart to Monaco for the Grand Prix. Took 13 hours including lots of bank holiday traffic and a smash windscreen thanks to kids throwing stones off a bridge! Eventually gave up trying to find somewhere to replace a windscreen in italy on a holiday and carried on regardless!

    Hi all, I am Victor, old school trekker but also big fan of GPS based driving in uncharted places... just to get myself lost and cause more "fun" than initially planned. Most delirious driving experience: driving through some Madeira island lonely roads, with the precious help of Sygic, and eventually being pulled over by the military police for having trespassed... an active military range! :)) Not even the officer checking for our documents could believe that a civil GPS system had their military area so perfectly mapped and made available for some lost sheeps like me and my wife. Else: one hour explanation, one written declaration and free military escort out of the prohibited area!

    May I add that Sysgic could have already been notified by the Portuguese authorities for such ... prank! :))
