i.v.o, you beat me to it....
JB is a lifesaver. also use ifunbox to transfer .TRP files to phone
I did not know about ifunbox, I tried a couple others as iExplorer etc, but they are all paid and ended using an app called Filza from Cydia, it is a file manager that works on the iPhone itself, I save my .trp files in Dropbox on the desktop and then, on the phone I just copy the files from Dropbox to the NA directory. I will give ifunbox a try, it looks promising.
ifunbox has, or had the last time I looked at it, a strong tie to advertising and social media BS that I felt made the site a vulnerable gateway to phishing and viruses. That's usually on par for something on the internet that's free.
True, I'm never online when transferring files from mac to iphone so the ifunbox ads never popup.
just got back from a slab ride up to WV/TN area and not really happy with copilot. once I leave the custom route, it keeps trying to return me back to my starting point [home]. I've tried adding a waypoint as "next stop" but after that next stop, it try's to send me home again. wtf :huh
I'll keep trying to isolate this issue or try another app
I've been satisfied with iExplorer, no issues with it so far.
Does the below trick you mention not get you back on route?
I have not been riding on a route in some time where I needed any kind of assisted navigation, so I have not experimented with it.
What happened in iOS 8.3 that made you delete CoPilot?
You can not import routes. I am looking for a solution now that does not involve jail breaking.

As trailer Rails noted, iOS now requires all Apps to use Doc Share API's if they want to Send/RECEIVE files. This was done to provide consistency and security. CoPilot has never supported the Doc Share API's and relied upon third-party File Apps to place files within CoPilots Doc's file structure. Those third-party Apps can no longer access other Apps File structure with the above iOS update.
I predominantly used CoPilot for it's routing as a backup to my GPS. Since I can't get my pre-planned Routes into the App...it's of no value. I don't foresee CoPilot making any changes to fix this since the only changes they have chosen to make in the past six months is to change their App ICON. :huh
This is pretty negligent of the folks that make the CoPilot iOS app. It's not like Apple doesn't forewarn of such changes/restrictions. In fact, they are quite good at it.
ALK Tech is now owned by Trimble. ALK was purchased for their Mapping and Truck Logistics business - NOT CoPilot Apps.
When you consider that (I'm guessing) 80-90% of App purchasers have no interest in pre-planned Route Import, the fact that they supported them at all on iOS is surprising.
Anyone else experience Copilot travel time being off, by about an hour? I plug in the same trip in Google Maps and Copilot. They both show the same mileage but Copilot adds an hour in travel time. The time shown in Google Maps I know to be correct. This happens frequently.
Edit: this happens for trips within the same time zone.
Not sure if its true on the iphone version, but I found the travel times were unrealistically long on the Android version.
It was the default speeds.
A bit of tweaking of the speeds closer to what I really run got them pretty close.
Thank you! That did it for me. The default speed for interstate was 55 mph, 30 mph for divided highways. Did I already say thank you? Thank you.
