Yes, Calimoto.  If you use the search I did a review on it some time ago.  Been a few improvements since then as well.

+1 Calimoto it's good navigation but still I was on a long trip to Wales and when I needed most internet connection there wasn't so proper GPS for long journeys for me is a must

As I think I said in my review, with Calimoto, you are better off pre-planning your routes on a desktop, where it is easy to check the route, as you can imagine how many farm tracks we have in Wales!

There is now an option to take a 'not so twisty' route, which appears to at least stick to B roads.

The downside is still the annual cost, if you want to use it out of your area.

I dont really. Go out of area unless to Colchester for servicing and sadly don't have a laptop. Will give it a try on my desktop though at work if they haven't blocked it! Thanks for the tip

Yes I could see that being a problem. I’ve heard the mobile app co pilot talked about for the mobile phone but can’t find out how much the charges are and how much for upgrades etc.
