I understand this, was just thinking that a tight, twisty road would require a lot of tiny line segments, which would be hard to follow on a 2D map view, on a small phone screen. Hence I like the 3D...

I guess I'm more interested to see how you would divide a route into tracks, and if I could see it well enough on the phone to follow, lol.

I'm guessing he's asking for a program/app/interface that the routing engine does not alter the route (as entered originally).

Must be a setting? Mine announces street names. It does not always get the pronunciation right, and occasionally, uses a very old name (but correct) that current maps may not use.

Make sure you have all unused apps closed, and Wi-Fi turned off. I can get about 6 hours continuous CoPilot operation and music before needing to plug my iPhone4 in.

I like to have a separate tow policy, hopefully keeping my insurance from going up (treating a rescue as a potential claim). The Good Sam ERS was fantastic on my one-and-only claim.

The free version of CoPilot isn't complete and you can't save routes, among other things. The "Premium" version is pretty feature-packed and you can sometimes catch it on sale for around $10.
