    Howdy boys. I'm getting back on the road after a 2-year hiatus. So I was wondering what the best routing app is these days. Is Trucker Path any good? I use to use Co-Pilot but that was a piece of ####. Has Co-Pilot improved? Are there any new players out there? I DO use a RM road atlas, but obviously that is not really that useful for the final leg to your destination.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    I used Copilot on an iOS device for almost two years. It was excellent. At first it had a lot of mapping issues and I was going to stop using it, mid last year the updates fixed them all for me.

    My iPad died recently and I started using a Garmin Dezl 800. It’s very good in all areas except for the speed limits it displays were pulled out of someone’s ###.

    I tried Truckerpath GPS at one point and hated it. My primary issue with it was the horrible interface that seemed to be geared to non-professional use. It had good routing for the time I used it though.

    I’ve been much happier with either Copilot or Garmin. There is a reason why Garmin sells the best. Don’t get me started on what kind piece is #### RM GPS is. I do use a RM Atlas though and wouldn’t be without it.

    I use Co Pilot since company put it on company tablet. It has live traffic update and show traffic jams 60 miles in front of you. I think they still have free trial for Co Pilot with traffic info. They still have trouble with the actual steer address numbers being off. I just double check on Google Maps.

    Garmin still seem to be the best from what I see on YouTube and hear. They have new models OTR 1000 and OTR 800. They look nice but I never used one. They are expensive.

    One complaint the OP has. Trucker Path is proving really good in final destination.
